We are continuing our support for our chosen charity, the Stroke Association, for 2018. The first of many events throughout the year was “The Resolution Run” which took place last Sunday, 4 March at Les Quennevais Cycle Track and Railway Walk. It was an excellent day with an amazing and record breaking turn out AND to top it off the sun shone throughout!! The team at Excel took part on a voluntary basis helping out with marshalling, distributing T shirts and handing out well deserved medals.
Excel ladies hit the road! We decided that we are going to take to the roads not only to get fitter and enjoy some well-deserved fresh air but also to raise funds for our 2017 chosen charity which is Jersey Stroke Association. In December 2016 we added a new piece of equipment to the office, not a new PC or a new printer, but a cross trainer! We all felt we needed motivation to get away from our desks on regular intervals so now we have no excuse.
Our first aim for 2017 was to challenge each other to how many minutes we can do per week on the cross trainer !!
Our second goal was to set specific walking routes and plans for our lunch breaks which meant that ‘if your name is on the list you are definitely getting out…’ A minimum of 10,000 steps per day is our goal to begin with.
Finally, a personal goal for Michelle "a charity cycle ride” from Paris to Geneva which she successfully completed after a week of ‘hard labour’!!
If you do happen to see us pounding or peddling the streets then do give us a wave of encouragement and any training tips would be very very welcome.
