I have to be honest with you, when I initially started working out I never in my wildest dreams thought that it would inspire so many people around me. It has been and continues to be an interesting fitness journey. I created a WhatsApp group with amazing individuals and everyday we push each other do to better than we did the day before. Within the group there are Fitness Instructors, Physiotherapists, Lawyers, IT Personnel, Secretaries, University Students, Bloggers…tell you what, the list is endless and the group is diverse.
The great thing about it is thanks to technology we don’t have to be all in one place to run, just a running application on your mobile device and you are good to go. There are runners from the UK, Algeria, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa,Zambia, Zimbabwe. Minus running we get to learn different languages, cultures and foods. Okay, I will have to expand on this on a different day, for now let me talk about the #UrsulaChallenge
The last challenge we had, Taku won hands down. We have a rule that whoever wins the challenge is the one who will choose what the next challenge will entail. I decided to have a little twist to it because I realised that to keep the motivation alive runners who are improving need to get some form of recognition as well and so Ursula was the lucky runner to get chosen. She has been running with the team since October and she has outdid herself, even running after a long day when all she wanted to do was sleep.
There are a few additions to her challenge which are:
- Participants are to weigh in on Monday morning or Sunday evening and have their weight recorded.
You are encouraged to weigh in at the same time you weighed yourself at the beginning of the challenge and to use the same scale.
The one who loses the most weight during this weeks challenge gets 15 bonus points.
P.S The weight loss is for those who have it as their goal to lose weight, if not please do not worry yourself with the weigh in.
- There will be a cook off on the Rest Day of the challenge. The participant who sends through a plate that has healthy food options, is well presented and appealing to the eye will get 5 bonus points.
I hope you will take part in this challenge, trust me, if you are a fitness enthusiast you will completely enjoy it and probably come back for more. All the best in the upcoming challenge team, and may the best runner win!
P.S We always use Nike+(read as being resistant to change) for the challenges but this time the rules are more flexible and participants can use Strava, Cardio Trainer, Adidas and NRC.
