Happy New Year guys! Today marks the start of the Party Hard, Train Harder challenge for me. The challenge is raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust by walking 10,000 steps per day every day in January.
Who are the Teenage Cancer Trust?
The Teenage Cancer Trust are a charity that help young people age 13-24 who are diagnosed with cancer. They offer emotional, practical and physical support to help make a cancer journey more bearable.
Why I’m taking part in the Party Hard, Train Harder challenge
My first and most obvious reason is the Teenage Cancer Trust is an amazing charity that needs our support. I want to use my voice to raise awareness of the challenge and charity and hopefully raise more money for them.
I also really want to join in the Party Hard, Train Harder challenge to push myself. Whilst 10,000 steps per day might not sound a lot to some people, for me it is. I work in an office through the day so spend most of my day sitting down. Regular readers here will know I have hip problems and have had a few surgeries now so I don’t have the best mobility. At this time of year especially it’s very easy to use that as an excuse to stay tucked up indoors. Pushing myself to walk more every day for a month will hopefully start a new habit that I keep up for the rest of the year.
It is also going to be a great reason to explore more of my local area and have more outdoor adventures with Ellie.
How I’m going to hit my 10,000 steps per day for the Party Hard, Train Harder challenge
I’m hoping most days I can get outside and do the majority of my steps in the fresh air. It is January though, so as a back up I can head to the gym and use the treadmill or walk around somewhere indoors.
I will be tracking my steps each day on my health band and will keep updating my blog with how I am doing.
If you can please do sponsor me in my Party Hard, Train Harder challenge for the Teenage Cancer Trust. No matter how small a donation, every penny helps.
