It's been over a week since my colleagues and I completed the Jurassic Hike for Macmillan cancer support. I'm happy to announce that I finished the 26-mile hike and raised a total of £253.44 which is 101% of my target. Together as a team, we all managed to succeed our targets and in total reached 117% of our goal which amounts to £2,045.87.
Yesterday, my hips were very tight because of some heavy squats I did on Monday. My hips were very immobile, and today I'll talk you through some hip stretches you can do at work.
On the 15th of June, I will be taking part in a 23-mile hike for Macmillan Cancer with a few colleagues from work, and I am super excited to be taking part in this. We will all be training together, but I'm not too worried. I've been doing CrossFit for over 3 years and feel I have it in the bag. 💪
My nephew, wife and I went up to Oldham last weekend to visit my mum. While we were up there, my wife decided to book an hour of Total Ninja in Manchester which was booked online.
A few weeks ago, I took part in a Crossfit event called Battle Cancer. This event was in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research, and it was a spectacular event.
On Saturday the 20th of October, I competed at Battle Cancer alongside 3 of my CrossFit friends; Pete, Phil and Matt. The event had somewhere around 1,000 people attending to watch a range of CrossFit teams compete with one another.
Last Saturday, I took a tandem skydive thanks to my lovely wife who bought it for my birthday present. I have to say, I wasn't nervous at all, calm as a cucumber in fact. I always try to never over think any situation and say to myself... It's been done a million times before, they are experts and I'm going to be fine.
We are now into the new year (Happy New Year everyone) and usually at this time, everyone is looking to either lose weight, or become more healthy or even a combination of the two. As a Web Developer who has been in the field for just shy of 4 years, I think I have found a good way to keep myself motivated to becoming fit and healthy and would like to share it with you in the hopes you too can become more healthy.
