Today is launch day.
I’ve been backlogging key events as I felt it was necessary for me to reflect on my progress on my various activities so far. There are two marathons from last year I will blog in due course but going forward everything will be fresh.
Although this site is an outdoors and sports activity oriented site, I am writing as someone who at school never considered myself to be a sporty person. Someone at school who enjoyed outdoor class time was put in 'Group B' PE class. (Which they said was not done by ability). Group B had all the horizontally challenged and less active kids, plus the ones they didn’t know what to do with. I don’t believe the traditional PE classes we have at school is right for everyone.
This is my own sporty journey for general active well being, to see what works for me…
PS. This video will explain how the site name came about:
Had some friends over for the weekend and we had a brief go at some of the yoga poses I've tried before. It was fun as we tried to help each other out. My friend Dan managed to do the Crow on the first attempt which is very impressive.
I got them to photo me so I could see exactly how my posture is. Seems like it's never quite as well poised as you think!
How cool is this? I've got a tshirt shop!
A big thanks to my friend Claire Osborne for repeatedly pushing this shop idea to me. I've also got more 'girly,' designs as to her request.
Have a look everyone. Please get in touch if what you're after isn't there. There is a wide range of apparel available but to keep it from getting too cluttered I've just got sportswear for now..
There's a menu option at the top to reach the shop, or you can also use this to get your top:
The official name is 'Hellings Street Open Space,' but to me that sounds just a little bit pretentious. It's a park. More importantly it has inclining hoops which will be nice prep for one of the Tough Mudder obstacles. It even had water beneath you just like the real deal.
