This summer I will be partaking in the one million step challenge to raise money for Diabetes UK.
This will mean I will walk the length of about 19 marathons!
If you’d like to sponsor me please follow this link…. https://step.diabetes.org.uk/pages/elly
Where you will also be able to track my progress as the challenge continues.
This year is the fifth Kington Walking Festival, it runs from 15th -18th September 2016 and the brochure is now available on their website http://www.kingtonwalks.org
If you are staying in the area during the festival and need a massage to soothe your weary legs, feet or hips after your walk then please get in contact and we can arrange a massage!
Massage is great for flushing out waste products, such as lactic acid, that can build up during exercise. It can also improve blood flow into an area, bringing along with it more oxygen and fresh nutrients to aid with repairing any micro-damage that may have occurred during your walk.
Remember to stay well hydrated during your walk and to take a rest if you need it. I would also recommend to have a good full body stretch after your walk, but if you only have a couple of minutes then I would suggest stretching the main leg muscles, (quadriceps, hamstrings, calves) along with the gluteals, and doing some ankle circles with your feet.
I hope you enjoy the festival!
