In January, my partner Jimi and I were brave (or crazy) enough to enter into the Oxfam Trailwalker this year.
Trailwalker is an Ultra Marathon - that means we have to walk 64 miles in less than 30 hours (with no sleep).
We had started light training in January, and by March I knew I had to do something drastic if I was to be able to finish as my ankles and knees were not strong enough for such a huge challenge.
We started seeing Martin every fortnight and as well as completing the Trailwalker in 26 hours and 44 minutes, I have lost over a stone in weight and Jimi has lost nearly 2 stone!
The biggest change since we started seeing Martin is the motivation we now have, I find myself wanting to go to the gym and wanting to exercise - a virtuous circle - the more work you do, the fitter you are and the more you can do!
Thanks Martin, you are a fabulous motivator and trainer!
