With the current COVID-19 lockdown situation it can be all but too easy to accidentally stay in your home for a few days without doing any of your permitted daily exercises. I’m guilty myself of submitting to the mindset of “Oh I’ll just go running tomorrow…” and then never actually making it out the door.
Thankfully there’s a great incentive right now to get people up and moving, the Run for Heroes challenge and it’s very simple too! All you have to do is run 5K, donate £5 and then nominate 5 of your friends to complete the challenge too. This results in people staying fit and also much needed funds for our NHS Worker heroes who have been going above and beyond for all of us.
I did my 5K yesterday and now it’s your turn to step up to the challenge because I nominate you! Go and enjoy the nice weather and get some lovely fresh air. Even for non runners it’s a great time to give running a try, you don’t have to bit fit and you don’t have to run fast, it’s just about doing your best and enjoying it, even if that’s walking most of the distance!
