Fit Friends???

Right, no card today, but a cyber'll love this,

As you all know, I'm following the 6 week training program designed by Tesco in preparation for the Race for Life 5k run on the 22nd Jun in Aberdeen.

Marked down today it says I have to do a 21 minute session;

 2mins gentle jog + 1 min fast run ) Repeat 7 times = 21 mins

Ok so there's not much change in pace as far as I'm concerned - I'm just pleased to be running 21 mins without stopping!

Now here's where you lot come into it...

It says,

"Why not squeeze this into your lunch hour and get the girls in the office to join you?"

But I don't work in an office so girlies - who wants to take the challenge.  Be it walk or run, how about 21 mins of exercise this lunch time.

Leave me a comment if you manage to join me - I'd love it if you did?

If anyone does join me today I'll keep you posted of the next team challenge - and share some of the scheduled treats with you too.  I know we can all say we are too busy and find an excuse, but we also all know how good exercise is for both the mind and the body, so please look out those trainers and get moving. Jx

Can't join you I am afraid Janice but with you in spirit and love that card.

Now not sure if I should tell you this but last Summer our eldest daughter did the Race for Life and she so enjoyed it that this year she did the London Marathon !!

Nothing like as quick as her brothers but the most important thing was she completed it and is already planning for next year.

Good luck with your reps today.

I feel worn out at the thought of it Janice, but I will be thinking of you when I pop out for a walk at lunchtime. Hugs xx

Can I pretend to run but do it walking??? I seem to get killer shin splints everytime I run, When I tried to do the Couch to 5K i ended up in agony :( thats with warming up too!!!
Well Done you for managing to run though, Love Hazel xx

I'm so pleased you ladies are with me on this, big cheer for you all. Any exercise is good, be it dog walk, horse ride, run or skip, just a 20 min burst of activity is all I'm asking for, Jx
