Completing Race for life on Sunday

About 9 weeks ago, I  could not even run down my road without being breathless. Thanks to my friend Christine, whom I decided to join to do race for life in memory of her dad  as this  motivated me to start on an exercise programme, as well as the fact that my doctor had said I needed to do some exercise to help lower my cholesteral.

PREPARATION

I then started on a journey of preparation, which involved completing a healthy weight and  exercise plan run by our local health living centre The Grand gravesend http://www.thegrand.org.uk/

I then came across the couchto5k programme http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/c25k/Pages/couch-to-5k.aspx and incorporated it as part of my daily exericse routine.  To motivate myself I took pictures each morning and posted on social media, and my friends would comment with words of encouragement. I also joined aldies group who meet in our local park so and took part in their daily exercise programme. I also tried to wear fun outfits each day to motivate me!

Race for life 2016

It was such a fantastic day, and quite emotional as I was reading the reasons why people where taking part. I felt very humble and great that i too could do my bit for a special little girl Stacey Mowle who we lost just in her fight againts cancer as well as some family and friends.
