Sunday the 30.01.2011 was the first day of our team Moonwalk training with 12 of us officially through and 2 more joining training for the fun!
We had a 1 mile Power walk assessment of the group after a 0.5 mile warm up and completed 3.66 miles total for Week 1.
26.2 certainly looking achievable in under 6 hours by the event date.
It is still early enough for anyone who wishes to join in our non profit to me £3.00 fundraising walks every Sunday at 2pm.A great simple way to improve your fitness levels and reach a challenge and have some fun in 14 weeks.
