Newslink - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

We stomped our way through over a mil­lion steps in Steptem­ber, but it would be fair to say that Team Newslink spent a bit of time warm­ing the bench dur­ing the last month.

Now it’s time to get back in the game for the Voda­fone Work­place Chal­lenge, which started on Mon­day. It’s a month long chal­lenge to be­come more ac­tive count­ing the min­utes of ex­er­cise you do and try­ing new ac­tiv­i­ties.

Thank­fully Sport South­land have put the chal­lenges on­line so we can men­tally pre­pare our­selves for them too.

If, for ex­am­ple, you’re as unco as me, you can just ac­cept that rock­ing up to your first ever game of squash isn’t go­ing to be pretty, and know­ing your work­mates are go­ing to see you in togs doesn’t make the aquafit classes seem all that at­trac­tive.

We’re eye­ing up events too Cy­cle and Cel­e­brate is on the radar for Satur­day and two of us are do­ing the 10km slog at the Queen­stown Marathon in a cou­ple of weeks.

It could be a very painful month - but a lot of fun too.
