The 5x50 challenge (which started yesterday) is still open for new joiners today - so if there's anyone who is still dithering, or who hasn't heard about it yet...
(Some of this is shamelessly stolen from Sue's earlier post.)
We now have 62 (!) members in the “NHS Couch to 5K Team” for the 5x50 Challenge - 5x50co.uk
If you think you can fit in 30 mins of exercise or a 5k run/cycle/walk every day for a 50 day period then read on, this might just be for you…….
It is not a run every day; it is some type of active exercise for either a 5k distance or for 30 mins. The aim is to try and do something different and change exercise habits for a lifetime but it can include for example your walk to work, the shops, the school. It could be a 30 mins exercise class/DVD/swim. It could be karate or weight training. You can split the activities up over the day so maybe a 2k walk in the morning and a 3k run later on. You can do more than 5k/30 mins but that is the minimum requirement each day.
All of us here have already changed our exercise habits because we now run up to 3 times a week and many of us are already doing some other form of exercise on our non-running days so why not join the Team and log your activities each day to help get our Team's tracked kilometers up! Let’s support Swanscot, our seasoned member doing her 2nd year of the Challenge!!! Let’s help our intrepid member TJFlute as she completes this challenge, not for 50 days but for 100 days!!!!
It would be lovely to know you were out there with us as part of Team C25K, wherever you are in the world! You can register and join the Team here: 5x50.co.uk/register
If you are injured or if you think it’s too much to commit to this we fully understand but we would love your support nonetheless, though you might have to put up with quite a few blogs on the subject for a while so please bear with us!
So, I have my 5x50 T-Shirt and I'm raring to go; are you?!
