5×500 – Adding an extra zero
The 5×50 challenge inspired me to even out my exercise routine and take some exercise every day. I’ve always been into sport and exercise, but it took 5×50 to make me realise that I was having too many days when I didn’t exercise. As I’ve grown older those passive days were leading to more niggling injuries because, when I exercise, I really go for it. Four days of inactivity followed by a long run or big day on the mountain were leaving my body susceptible to injury.
