Our Business Development Exec Ali is currently in training for the upcoming 20 mile London at Night Pink Ribbonwalk for Breast Cancer Care. With the walk only days away and 20 miles being no mean feat, we are checking in with Ali to see how she is getting on.
“I started training on 1st May, just power walking with the dog thirty minutes every day, covering a few miles for a couple of weeks. The dog loved it – on busy days he sometimes just gets to go out in the back garden.
I decided that from the 15th of May I needed to step it up a bit so I started walking up to an hour every day. I also joined a Hot Yoga class in my village in which I am now addicted to. I have never done anything so tough as this – every day you get a tiny bit better, that little bit stronger, and I’ve started to see a bit of muscle definition.
Last week was bad as I was struck down with a nasty cold and chest infection. I did nothing but enjoyed the rest.
Today I got up at the crack of dawn, walked the dog 6 miles, and this evening after work I will do Hot Yoga. This will be my training plan for the rest of the week, except on Sunday, when I will be taking a back pack with me and do a good 10 to 12 miles instead.
Now when my dog sees me get the trainers on he gets his lead and heads off! I’m not the only one well trained.”
