Paralympic Cyclist & Paratriathlete

I'm looking forward to the 5x50 Challenge again this year. I won't be running 5K a day as I have to integrate something in that complements my handbike training just before the race seasons begins.

Amazing things come from the small things that we do everyday ... though I know running 5K a day doesn't feel very small! I've decided to do 5 sets of theraband work a day for the challenge this year, to help me get my shoulder muscles strong and in good health which will hopefully mean racing a handbike faster!

I've been meaning to do it for a while, but only manage it three times a week at the moment, so doing it everyday should really help.

Enjoy your challenges! It's so rewarding to set ourselves a goal and see it through.
