Well, like all of you who have also signed up to fitness type events this year, I am not sure whether I am excited or nervous about a half marathon in the new forest and Bicester triathlon – both in March!
I’ve been out cycling this morning – to the gym so I could combine it with a run – and blimey it was a cold cycle through the snow! It’s pretty difficult to get motivated in this snowy, slushy, freezing rain kind of weather – but it’s also a pretty quick way to warm up on such a cold day!
One of the reasons I’ve signed up for these events is to support my husband in his marathon training – Dave is running the London marathon on 21 April for Helen and Douglas House – a local children’s hospice. Doing this event for charity means he is determined to raise as much money as possible. And – as you may expect – he’s lining up his pre and post training massages from me! Those of you who live in East Oxford, may know the great work done by Helen and Douglas House supporting terminally ill children and their families – if not, check out the videos on their website to be inspired. If you’d like to sponsor Dave, please visit: www.justgiving.com/DaveWheater.
What events are you signed up to this year? Remember to let me know if you’re training hard for an event so I can tailor your massage to give your muscles the quickest recovery time!
