Our wonderful Pilates and Neurodynamics Instructor Sasha Baggaley is attempting to fundraise for Parkinson’s UK, by taking part in The Celtman event on 12th June. Essentially this is mega-hard triathalon!
Sasha would really appreciate your support – either by making a donation or by sharing the link to her Just Giving page (below) with your family, friends or colleagues. Or perhaps you would like to join Sasha in a challenge of your own?
“I invite you to take on a challenge during the month of June to cover the same distance I will be doing in any way you like, either on your own or as part of a team (you can invite anyone to join your team) – you could do a bit of all of the sports involved (swim, cycle, walk), or choose just one. You could do a little bit each day in June, or you could work with your team to cover the distance you have chosen in one day. Please make sure you are medically fit to take on your chosen challenge, remember it is just for you to decide and feel comfortable with it.
Here are my distances and how you could do any of them:
Swim 3400 metres (ie, 136 lengths of a 25 metre pool – so you could do 17 lengths on 8 days during June, and you’ve got it! Or swim with friends and share the distance)
Cycle 202 kms (ie, 50 laps from Seafield Cat and Dog home to Joppa end of the prom! Or you could do 6-7 kms on an exercise bike every day in June!)
Run/Walk 42 kms (ie a marathon!! – One lap around Arthurs Seat is 5 kms; The Meadows perimeter is 2.25 kms – so how about setting out to Nordic Walk with a group of friends and see what you accumulate in distance together?
The most important thing is to have fun – do something for the pleasure it gives you. Make sure you feel your challenge is achievable for you, and doing something with family and friends is always more fun! Let’s make June our super challenge month!!”
