Good evening folks and welcome to September,

where has the summer gone ?

Hopefully those who have been away from regular walking will be getting back into the swing of things this coming week and month.

Hope all who have had holidays have enjoyed them very much.

Hope anyone who has overindulged or taken their eye off the health and wellbeing ball, so to speak, has firms plans and commitments for the coming month to get back on track.


I am setting myself a personal goal of completing the splits by the end of the month. I begin my programme tomorrow, although I did have a practice run on Saturday. The program includes warming up, strength based exercises and then contract-release stretching. My legs and bum were quite tender this morning, so I started the day with an epsom bath and did some light movement throughout the day. Wish me luck !

Why on earth would a 45 year old want to attempt the splits I hear some of you asking. Well, for no other reason than to build up my strength and flexibility around the centre of my body for I believe that will add some extra years to my life. I believe it will improve my walking, my mobility, my speed, my stability and lessen my risk for pain and injury.

It is my challenge to myself.

However, I also challenge you to try something new, or to rebuild some good habits in any area of your life.
