What you need to know:

  • I began to heave and wheeze a few steps to the fourth floor.
  • It was so bad, I could not even manage to breathe through nose.

A year into the Covid-19 pandemic, I got a rude awakening regarding just how unfit I was when I happened to visit an office on the eighth floor of a building whose lifts had given up and refused to budge.
