I hope you are keeping fit and well and managing to keep the winter blues at bay.
Exercise plays such a huge part in our physical and emotional well-being.
Well done to those of you who have managed to keep your fitness going so far this winter.
Most of the classes have been absolutely jam-packed - particularly Tuesday's Men on Mats and Sunday's Fitness Yoga and Pilates - surprisingly the Wednesday evening Pilates has had lower attendance even although there are plenty signed up for it - Hump Day or maybe there is something good on TV!
This is the first winter for a long time that I've been under a bit of pressure to keep my running fitness going right through.
I've entered the very first Stlrling Scottish Marathon next May, having promised myself (probably about 20 years ago) that I would do one.
I did a lot of road and fell running/orienteering in my teens and twenties and have a couple of pretty decent times under my belt over 10k and Half marathon but 20 years later this is a different ball game..
My aim is to run the 26.2 miles without stopping/walking and I decided early on that injury and boredom were my own risk factors to achieving this.
Pilates, Yoga and High Intensity classes are great for preventing injury and increasing stamina and power which are essential for running for 4-5 hours but I've also joined Mandy Williams and her marathon club at Run4 It in Bridge of Allan, to find some friends luckliy running at a similar pace and keep the motivation going.
Motivation is the key to most things - my belief is if you're not motivated how can you enjoy and succeed in life - find something you're passionate about and follow your dreams!
