A Different Perspective!

As a healthcare worker, I do not have the option of working from the safety of my own home, so I have decided to use the hospital as one of my routes. On these days natural light and footpaths will be swapped for the floors of a theatre suite and ICU, but you will see that distance can be achieved even with the shortest of routes!

I know it’s incredibly difficult for you all at the moment, learning from home instead of a classroom, no sporting activities, and not seeing your friends are all big sacrifices.

While staying at home is so important in the fight against the virus it is not something that comes naturally to us and so exercise is now more important than ever.

So please get up and get active, follow one of the leaders, and remember every step counts.

Over the month of February, I plan on walking 100km.
