1K Each Day

Sports Relief 2016 - logoIf you are living in the UK, it’s hard not to be aware of and inspired by this year’s Sports Relief, with comedian Jo Brand’s 155 miles Hell Of A Walk from Hull to Liverpool in only seven days and Eddie Izzard’s 27 marathons in 27 days tribute to Nelson Mandela. But the one the really struck me this year was a small segment on BBC’s The One Show about primary a school in St Ninians.

Every day the children and teachers at this school have a Daily Mile walk, jog or run around their playground to burn off some energy and keep themselves fit and active. OK, so it doesn’t seem like much compared to the epic headline grabbing adventures of some of our favourite celebrities, but that’s not the point. The point is that these young people and their teachers are literally taking steps every day to improve their own wellbeing – something so simple that almost anyone can do it.

So, inspired by their energy and enthusiasm, I hopped on the treadmill this evening and made a promise to myself to run every day. Even if it’s only one mile or one kilometre each, it doesn’t matter. The important thing is to get on and do it.

I couldn’t find a clip of program online to share with you, but do check out Jo Brand and Eddie Izzard on the videos below if you haven’t seen them already.
