Feel Inspired – Simon Dodd
Simon took part in our Wednesday lunchtime HIIT sessions earlier this year. After the HIIT class finished he carried on with his activity taking part in the Parkruns, doing the official one on the Saturday as well as doing the same 5k course on a Wednesday. At the end of July Simon moved from Jesmond to Royal Quays Marina, North Shields but kept up the Wednesday and Saturday 5K runs, and even managed a 10k Run.
Simon said “I have the bit between my teeth now, and aim to slowly improve my 5k time, having knocked nearly 7 minutes off my time since the first parkrun”
Simon has said he has to thank Active Newcastle and the HIIT class for getting him active again, and for the entry in to the GNR 5k. He said it was a great experience, and one he will be repeating next year.
Active Newcastle offer limited places in the GNR 5K each year and have entries to other events throughout the year also
Keep an eye out for the activities and events coming soon
