Pupil Lockdown Fitness Stories – Emily (S6)

During lockdown I aimed to increase my fitness with various activities with all the free time I now have. I set a goal to be able to develop my stamina and strength for running. Each weekday morning I go on a 30 minutes run and I have done so for 6 weeks. This has not only kept me healthy physically but also mentally as I do this before any school work, giving me energy for the rest of the day. This allowed me to complete the ‘Run 5, Donate 5, Nominate 5’ for the NHS.

I have also been completing Les Mills classes such as Body Pump and Body Combat to gain strength and Body Balance and Barre to develop my flexibility. With my family, I go on daily walks to get fresh air and take a break and I have started the Chloe Ting workouts for May.

Exercise has helped motivate me during lockdown so far as it gives me a routine and keeps me active. It has given me a sense of achievement when I progress and this encourages me to keep trying.
