I have just had a the most Energised 3 Days and wanted to share them with you, as we did some amazing things, met some wonderful people and raised lots of money for charity! Have a read of my round up and some great links…
I have had the pleasure of working with Danone UK since 2006, who are a forward thinking, Award winning company who are always offering well being and performance workshops for their employee’s . This month we wanted to do something different, so I asked my good friend and Coach Michelle Dillon, a former Olympian herself, and her husband Stuart Hayes who was a key part of the London 2012 Triathlon Team, along to share their story. I followed their inspirational story, with a workshop titled ‘Empowering Balanced Performance’. We had such a great three days with this wonderful company, and received great feedback, so a huge thank you to Michelle and Stuart.

Next up was our Annual 9th Spinathon for Children in Need, with a fully booked class we cycled for 100mins, with some people dressed up as bears and all sorts of outfits! A great effort as the room turned into a sauna as we raised over £300 for this very worthwhile cause. This takes our Energised Charity total to over £31,000 since 2004 which I am really proud of, and look forward to taking the total to over £35,000 in 2013 or more?!

We headed off to the British Triathlon Awards Dinner in Birmingham, hosted by Steve Cram a former Olympian himself and London 2012 Commentator I knew we would be in for a great night. The 6 Olympic athletes were interviewed on stage by him, stories were shared and inspiration ignited for London 2013 World Championships. From the Awards a special Well Done must go to Sarah Springman CBE for over 30 years work within the sport. I have had the pleasure of giving her sports therapy treatments, and she is one remarkable lady. A huge well done goes to a friend and sports therapy client, Andy Bullock for winning the Coach of the Year Award, this is his 3rd Coaching Award and Bristol is lucky to have such an awesome coach, and founder of Bristol and District Triathlon Club, check out his site here: http://www.escoach.co.uk. Big Well Done’s to the Men and Women’s 2012 Team’s, Iain Dawson and many others, the full list of winners can be viewed on the British Triathlon website.
After the Triathlon Awards, and staying with my good sports therapy friend from World Champs (http://www.thetritouch.co.uk/) Aurelie, I got up early to go and run the Bristol Off Road 15km for Stroke Awareness, this was totally unplanned so I really was not prepared! Sadly a very lovely client, who I have worked with since 2006 had a massive stroke and is in a coma still. I hope that by running this race it will have helped a tiny bit, and any donations will definitely make a difference to this great family and others in the future: Click here http://www.stroke.org.uk/
So a pretty busy, and remarkable 3 days. I am pleased to say that I have then had an easy, ‘rest’ day which is key to balance, well being and ‘energisedness’!
