Feeling really upbeat after the weekend and have some great news to share. Yesterday (Sunday 2nd May) saw my take my practical assessment for the Gym Instructor’s course. This involved creating a programme for my client, welcoming them, making them aware of fire exits, first aid etc. This was followed by demoing and instructing the session you had designed, all under the watchful eye of an adjudicator. 

The result was a pass and I am now qualified as a level 2 Gym Instructor. Now the work begins to try to get into the industry at 48 with no previous experience. I have no doubt it will be hard but motivation has got me this far!

Earlier in the day I had been running at Draycote Water with some friends who are training for the London Marathon. The plan had been a nice steady run of ten miles. It was a cracking day and the banter was flowing and before I knew it I had put in an new PB for 10 miles at 1:23:09 at an average pace of 8:17/ mile. I like running with other people. 

The week ahead will be a busy on. Wolf run coming up on Sunday and the Triathlon is under 5 weeks away. Still plenty to do.
