The Race For Life

Just four weeks from now and I will be doing the Race for Life.

I’ve been training! I’m currently about half way there, but that’s just walking. I’m thinking now I’d like to jog a little. I will see how it goes. My health varies on a day to day basis, some days I’m ok, some I’m not. I’ve just endured four nightmare days and now I’m wondering how on earth I will cope if I’m really ill by the time the race comes around?

 I’m committed now, I have to do it no matter what. 

So, how has my training plan gone so far?

Well, I’ve been drinking more water. A simple step but something that so many of us don’t do enough of. Keeping yourself hydrated is very important. My goal is eight glasses a day. Sometimes I don’t manage that, but now that I’m trying to be more aware, I am drinking more than before.

I have my new trainers. Not always necessary, in fact generally it’s more comfortable to train in your old faithfuls. However, it’s always nice to receive a little incentive and a nice new pair of trainers has had me wanting to go out more to try them out.

I have a Fit Bug. Again, not a necessity but it is recording all my activity for me. I’ve only been using it a couple of days so I can’t comment too much, but it’s always nice to have something that encourages you on your way.

I’ll also be starting on Kiqplan very soon, which is an online program to help to train for races like this. Kiqplan also do programs for slimming, and getting rid of baby tums or beer bellies.

Two weeks ago I buried another family member lost to Cancer.
Hell hath no fury like a woman in pink!
Take a moment to sponsor me and let fight this awful disease together!
Thank you x
