My son Jack and I ran the Alresford 10k on 17th June. We both had a good day – 17 year old Jack coming 18th and me enjoying a good hard run two weeks out from my ironman race. The race course is challenging but brilliantly-organised and friendly. I’ve always either run it or marshalled.
Three days later I got a phone call to tell us that both Jack and I had won fantastic prizes. Evolution, the Alresford gym where I’m a member, had offered a year’s membership to the fastest man and woman from the SO24 postcode.
That is a brilliant prize with each membership being worth £395! That’s better than winning the whole race! And it was great to share the limelight with Jack.
I’ve already blogged on here about how strength training is part of my training. In the build up to my next challenges, strength training will be even more important so the membership couldn’t have come at a better time. And I’ll be able to do extra pilates and Body Pump for good measure.
