It’s been a busy week full of a variety of fun and sweaty activities! Zumba classes, a 20 mile walk in the rain, pilates, some serious cycling, Dynamic Body Work classes and some saucy moves on the dance floor!
Lucy has been inspiring us all with the amount of classes she has attended over the last two weeks and is Loving every minute! Liz and Rosemary have been walking around campus virtually every lunch time – smoke is literally billowing from their pedometers!!!
Ellie who cycles over 14km to work and back come rain or shine (and we all know there hasn’t been much shine recently!) is currently nursing an ankle injury, so she cannot run at the moment. However, she is keeping her fingers well and truly dipped in the fitness pie by volunteering at the Hove Park run on Saturday. It’s a fantastic initiative - it’s a free, timed 5km run in Hove park which starts at 9.00am from the basketball courts every Saturday. If anyone’s interested check out: http://is.gd/4JCNjd
Pip has been training VERY hard for her EPIC 56 mile city to coast ride (for a very worthy cause!) on Saturday! And here’s what she has to say:
I have been training hard and have regularly cycled from Hassocks, where I live, to Falmer over Ditchling Beacon. I’m really looking forward to cycling tomorrow, especially as this is a route once frequented by my grandparents before the war. They met in a cycling club and regularly cycled from London, where they lived, to Brighton. My granddad later sold their tandem to buy my granma an engagement ring. I’ll dig out a photo of them to update the blog next week, and hopefully have some snaps of me coming through the finish line!
I’ve raised £340 so far. As an example of what CARE can do with this money; £335 could provide a simple rope water pump and maintenance training for a community, to reduce time spent collecting water.
