I danced in the morning………

It’s a journey not a destination!

Having spent most of the last 10 years cycling or training for cycling events not cycling has been a little bit of a shock not least to my posterior!

Cycling has been replaced with a mixture of weight lifting, HIIT classes and spin sessions

The original intention was to improve my core strength to aid my dancing but what I wasn’t expecting was to have rediscovered my love of weight training.

My weekday mornings start early, very early and are now filled with cardio and my evenings with JKD or weightlifting. The team at Waterworld have been amazing they continue support and encourage at every opportunity. I’ve been going to gyms for the last 10 years but have never experienced such a dedicated team of instructors.

The unintended consequence of my new regime is the weight loss currently 21 lb in the last 6 weeks. Now let’s face it I had it to lose but I’m pleased with the progress not least because my strength has increased dramatically.

So a special mention to James Case PT, Becky Hedley, Michelle Jones, Simon Gow and the rest of the team at Waterworld Wrexham.

The dream team, Becky and James

So with just over a week to go until the big day things are moving at a pace!

Last week saw the final dancers meeting with the arrangements and final running order being announced. Kirsty and I go 9th out of the 10 teams which means at least another hour of waiting on the night!

We continue to ‘iron out’ the routine (I’m still doing the teacup 🤷‍♂️) but it actually looks like I can string a few steps together! Who would have thought it

Oh and I dropped Kirsty again bless her 😳
