Apart from the odd frolic in the river during the summer, I haven’t done any real exercise for what I think is about 18 years (ish). After suffering from symptoms of old age and inactivity for many years I thought I’d better get off my bum and do something to stretch the old lungs.
I don’t fancy a gym, haven’t enough motivation to take myself out for a run – not that I enjoy running anyway, so I thought I’d give the OCR (obstacle course racing) training a go at Field Fit.
It’s Tuesday evening and I’ve just got back fro an hour in the cold & wet, and I hurt, and I will probably hurt until my next session on Thursday. In fact the 2nd session I did was a Thursday, and I only stopped hurting Tuesday morning, just in time for my next session. My point is… it’s painful – I don’t remember pushing myself, or being pushed so hard, but, it’s incredibly rewarding, this is only my fourth session and I can feel the benefit already. Oh, and I sleep really well afterwards.
It’s a friendly bunch, Jack (pictured above) the instructor knows his beans and it’s actually rather enjoyable in a perverse kind of way, so it would super good to have some more of you join us! He runs a few different types of sessions (not all OCR) over different days and caters for all levels so if you’re in need of a kick up the proverbial, come and have a go!
