Be Happy : Blog Refresh!

15 May

Everyone deserves a little spring clean – and that doesn’t just apply to the car, or your home …

I’ve given my blog a little refresh ready for summer!

So welcome to the newly refreshed …

 

Train Hard, Eat Well, Be Happy

 

In the weeks to come, I’d like this site to become a tool for anyone interested in health, fitness and food!

A place to share tips, information, recipes and inspiration and motivation to others, along with my blog updates on my own training.

So to the gym-goers, fitness freaks and foodies – whether you are training for a marathon, want to lose a few pounds or just enjoy a good run around the park, this is for you!

Regular updates to be developed over the coming weeks will include:

Monday’s Motivator; for when you need that little bit of inspiration after a busy weekend!

Wednesday’s Workout; short and sweet workouts for you to have a go at – from exercises you can do at your desk, to stretches in the kitchen – and the best bit being, you won’t need to go out of your way to include a Wednesday Workout in your week!

Friday’s Factswhether it’s fitness related, or general health and diet – tips and reminders to keep you on the straight and narrow just before the weekend!

Sunday’s Serving; I love to bake and cook but Sunday afternoon is my only free time to do this, and so I plan to test out new gluten-free recipes on Sundays, and share them with you here.

 

I’m forever updating the site, and looking for ways to improve and keep it interesting and useful – therefore if anyone has any comments or questions they’d like to share, I’d LOVE to hear from you.

 

Meanwhile, Happy Wednesday!

Be Happy : TRC

30 Aug

I was a little early – perhaps a bit of an eager beaver! I overestimated how long it would take to get to the club from work, and so got to the club twenty minutes earlier than expected!

I sat and chatted to Ralph until the others turned up, and we discussed the impact of the Olympics on the squad.

Thames Rowing Club generally take on about 60 novices a year, and as the season goes on and weather gets worse numbers drop.

August 2012, TRC had interest from over 150 people, and Ralph was amazed by the popularity. The Gold rush of medals at the Sydney 2000 Olympics had increased numbers, however the impact of the London Olympics had become rather apparent.

 

5 others turned up, 2 girls and 3 guys, and we were taken on a tour of the facilities – the boathouse, and the club – before being taken up to the gym for a quick intro to the correct rowing technique on a rowing machine – also known as an ‘erg’ or an ‘ergo’, and a quick session in the indoor tank.

The facilities are great, and Ralph was really lovely.

He took our details and said he will be in touch within the next couple of weeks with information on the start of the season, and the training schedule.

Fingers crossed! 🙂
