Hey just a quick post for me this morning.  Really busy morning doing more outdoor work with clients these past few weeks while the weathers almost perfect for outdoor exercise……Cold enough to keep cool while trying to get the metabolism as high as possible – for more fat burning potential throughout the day.  Aswell as some functional strength exercises – none of that  ‘shake weight’ crap I wrote about here!   (Click!)

I just wanted to give a big word up to all the people who participated in the Great North Run on Sunday.  I used to be a cross country runner and I remember the games your mind plays on you when your body is aching and you still have loads of miles to go! I know a few people at the Village gym (where I am mainly based) who were running on Sunday, Well done to you all! 

I mentioned a while ago (click) about my friend Jo Baynes running and raising money for cancer, she raised over £400! This was her goal at the start and again Big Thanks to all those who donated.  Here are her words from yesterday:

Hello all,
 
Thank you all so much for your sponsorship and as promised here are the photos from the big day!


 
I truely loved ever minute of it from the drizzly start, brightened of course by Ant and Dec, slapping hands with the thousands of people! To the miles of very heavy rain at mile 12 to the finish – I swear at one point it was so heavy I couldn’t actually see!
 
But it really is true what they say every year that the atmopshere is amazing!  Everyone was lovely from helping me over the railing into my section (don’t ask!) to the Cancer Research UK cheering bus that called my name and support as I was going around the route.
 
It was a rather tough course, but mainly because there were so many people a personal best was impossible so I just decided to enjoy myself and get to the end.
 
My offical time was 2.37, however according to my watch I ran an extra 2.5k so I’ll like 15 mins of my time please! Tee hee!

 
I really can’t tell you how grateful I am to each of you for helping me to support this wondeful charity – Thank you
 
Jo

Jo’s done really well, and I’m glad she had so much fun while doing some good too.  I’m off now to help a client in the wonderful outdoors too!

PS You might have noticed the nights becoming darker and darker recently. Next Monday (27th September) is the last Outdoor bootcamp on an evening. This makes sense, as the accident risk in the dark sky rockets. Don’t believe me?  I remember when I was 12, our footie keeper accidentally running in to a tree…..not good!    For those that prefer the indoors with some pumping tunes on an evening……………… October through to March are your months!  Click here for more
