Day 24: January to the rescue

Having completed my core strength exercises 3 times on the trot I was feeling pretty pleased with myself. Then on Monday last I conveniently forgot to do them. I realised I needed a way to stop this ‘forgetting’ business and therefore jumped at the chance to sign up for ‘Red January’.

RED January is all about improving mental health by doing something active every day in January. It doesn’t really matter what the activity is; running, walking the dog, visiting the gym, whatever takes your fancy. For me it was a chance to remember to do something on the 3 rest days from running each week – namely the core strength exercises. It’s only the 2nd January but it worked today so thanks to Red Together for the added help! Interested? You can find out more here:

I should also remember to treat myself for all this hard work. Perhaps a face mask courtesy of Stella:

One thought on “Day 24: January to the rescue

  1. I’m doing RED January too and trying to model not having to run madly every day as I feel I should as one of the club’s mental health champions. I did 10 different stretches while getting up today which was quite fun (heel drops on the step in the hall, ankle rotations while cleaning my teeth…). Hint: don’t try to take pics of yourself doing strength training. I have some terrible examples on my blog! Impossible!
