I’ve finally found the sport that’s right for me … having been off-line from the support group and feeling the toll of the lurgy I’ve tried out nhs.uk/livewell/Pages/Livew...
Winter Sports … so now that’s why I totally messed my body clock up watching the Winter Olympics … Bobsleigh, Luge … "aka Formula 1 on Ice" – yes now we’re getting somewhere – even Speed Skating is on my recommended list now that would be phenomenal to go 7mph faster than Usain !!
Good co-ordination, balance and sharp reflexes are essential skills (bit iffy without glasses that one!)
Psychologically, my responses suggest I have a taste for excitement and am open to new activities – no argument there, me to a T To have good Technique, be Aerodynamic, with Power, and show Endurance (TAPE) are key apparently … but the results are in and in no particular order:
Pressure – 4/5 I deal with pressure well - Being ready for it helps me deal with it We call that being a Mum …
Focus – 4/5 I concentrate and focus well – Remember, always focus on things I can control ! Am I a reformed control freak now then?
Adversity - 4/5 I’m good at bouncing back, which will help me to succeed. I should use it to learn about myself and my temporary glitch to the C25K, lurgified still
Motivation - 4/5 Well done for reminding myself of my goals and what I want to achieve - cheers
Self Belief – 4/5 Well done for believing in myself. It will help me achieve my goals – well if I don’t believe I can nobody else here will … just yet
Only problem is when I check out the map for locations where I can take up speed skating, bobsleigh, ice hockey or even curling I end up zooming out so far I may as well move to Canada!
Back to the drawing board and planning my return to C25K W5R1 ... for now I’ve had enough excitement for one day
Love to hear how others get on with the link x
