Jackie and Soren 26/01/2024: organise a flash-mob in Salisbury!!

Simon and Ian 10/03/2023: Do some form of exercise every day. Doesn’t matter what, as long as it is something that isn’t part of your normal day e.g. can be a walk, but not a walk to the shops you had to do anyway. Or press-ups, sit-ups etc.

checked in May ’23 Everyone’s keeping the promise!! Great stuff guys

Rob 02/2023: share a run

Jason 02/2023: Is doing a 50 km run and a SUP paddle and cycling too!! We agreed to do a run together – no date yet.

Mike 18/03/2023: Do 26 sit-ups every day

Checked in May 23. The sit-ups are happening plus more. Mike’s joined a circuits session once a week too!

Helen 02/04/2023: Run any length at all, once a week until September when Helen’s running a 10 km to support WRAC. She runs one race every year with others from the group but never does enough prep. Coincidentally, from 2nd April, this challenge happens to be about 26 runs!!!😎.

Checked in May 23: Helen is completing regular runs and is well on the way to

Jackie 29/04/2023: Jackie wants to run a 10-mile organised event in 2023, because she’s run one before and wants to again. She’s not run for quite a while. We agreed that we’d start with a 5km target and go from there. That suits me at the moment too as I’ve got to build up from my Achilles strain, so we are going to do Couch to 5k, giving us a chance to ease into running over the 9-week course. We’re planning to start on Thurs 11th May
