Putting a Spring in Your Step!

Yes, apologies for the pun but here we are nearly at the end of a soggy February and many of us are looking forward to better days and drier weather. I’m grabbing any respite from the rain to get out in the fresh air – as we all now, daylight and the open air is good for our mental and physical health. My next workshop is all about better walking and running, whether you’re a couch potato that needs to find the propulsion to get up and go, an active walker/runner that keeps finding discomfort after activity or you would simply like to find a better swing to your stride, come along to “Improve Your Stride” on Saturday 7th March 2020 from 10.30-12.00pm. The workshop is at Remedy House, 24 Wilkinson Street S10 2GB and costs £20 per person or £36 for two. I guarantee you’ll feel the difference.

Relieving hip cramp

On 17 October I’m taking part in Night Strider – a half marathon to raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice. I’ve run distances for charity but I think walking is more of a challenge. Why? Because it’s easy to “throw” yourself at speed over a certain distance and pay the penalty afterwards. But walking asks for integration, co-operation and if difficulties present themselves on the way, you have to deal with them. relieving hip cramp
