International Women’s Day
For International Women’s Day, we’re profiling inspiring women who stay active. You don’t need to be a professional athlete to keep yourself in good health. Grab a friend, choose a sport or activity that gets you smiling and enjoy the endorphins afterwards.
As the Active Lifestyles Officer for the University, you can be forgiven for thinking that I never lose enthusiasm for physical activity, but when it’s 7:00am on a Sunday morning and you’ve had a late night the night before you really do have to dig deep to get yourself up and going. I’m sure I’m not alone in wanting to stay cocooned up in my warm bed.
Just woke up at 7am on a Sunday to go for a quick run. After not having the best night sleep, I’m feeling pretty tired and it was a massive effort to get going.
So it’s been a while since I’ve been on a run, and to be fair it’s not going as bad as I thought it would and it’s actually really nice to get out in the fresh air plus –IT’S NOT RAINING, yay!
Feeling a lot more awake now and ready for the day. I feel so much better for getting out and I’m now full of energy!
If, like Abi, you want to get back into running, why not join our Jogging Club, which sets off from All Saints park every Thursday at 4:45pm. There’s a variety of distances so don’t worry if you a beginner or a seasoned 10k runner.
