OUR STEPPERS ARE HALF WAY!

Just like that, we are past the halfway mark in the AUHC.

For many of us here, we have travelled over 160 kilometres during the first 3 weeks of the 10,000 step challenge. We’ve reached the top of the mountain and are ready for the down hill run.

Congratulations to the high achievers who are smashing out some impressive results. The Forum’s very own Mel D, Peta P and Damara H who have all travelled over 250 kilometres each already this challenge!

If the first three weeks for the challenge haven’t gone to plan, it’s never too late to get back on track. There is nothing stopping you from starting.

Lockdown life can be hard and overwhelming. Be proud of the steps you take this week; there is an amazing feeling waiting for you at the end.

You don’t need to have a plan to start or improve your stepping journey…you simply need to start.
Some simple methods to set yourself up for success:

  • Start your day with a positive mind set.
  • Find a great music playlist.
  • Breakout your joggers
  • Schedule your movement hour in your daily calendar
  • Dont forget to only exercise in line with the NSW Public Health Order

Start where you are.  Use what you have. Do what you can. (Arthur Ashe). 

Here are some activities to keep you moving.

Loungeroom Workout

Exercise in your loungeroom to complete this workout. 5 exercises, you choose the rounds you complete.

45 seconds work, 15 second rest.
3 rounds = 15 minutes, 6 rounds = 30 minutes.

  • Inchworm
  • Curtsey lunge
  • Plank shoulder taps
  • Lying leg raises
  • Mountain climbers

 Do you want to give running a try? Are you looking for something more than a walk through your LGA?

Here is a 6km running program for you to try. The program is structured over nine weeks and will have you moving all the way through to summer.

Movement feels and is different for everyone. It’s important that you work out within your limits and find a comfortable pace. Start small and build on your endurance.

Remember you don’t have to be great to start, you just have to start to be great.
