We Elves know that physical activity is beneficial for health and well-being and we also know that sometimes we just don’t do enough of it. Well here is a great opportunity for us all to kick start our activity and also be part of something very big.
The enthusiastic friends of Musculoskeletal Elf in Scotland are are looking to get an Exercise Flash-Mob going on the week of Friday 23rd Nov to Thursday 29th Nov. They want this to be worldwide and get thousands of people to sign up to walking, cycling or running 5kms a day for one week its called 5×50. For added interest, one of the organisers Andy Murray is going to try run 7 Ultra Marathons, on the 7 different continents, in 7 days. For a bit of a laugh here is a trailer for some TV he’s making about the trip.
So go on become part of it
By running, walking, cycling 5k a day for the 7 days from 23rd to 29th November the organisers aim to cover the equivalent distance of 5 times round the world. It’s not aimed at the fit – it’s about getting everyone involved. Visit the 5×50 website for full information and to join the challenge.
