SUE Patmore upped her fitness levels when she took part in the Burnie Challenge two years ago.
This gruelling event sees competitors make their way through a muddy obstacle course.
Mrs Patmore was so inspired by the experience that she took up regular training with Lakeland Fitness.
This year she will add another event to her fitness resume with the B&E Burnie Ten.
“I started exercising a lot more after the Burnie Challenge but I have always been reasonably fit. I’ve always socially played basketball and walked the dog and in summer I love to waterski,” she said.
“I find that as I have got older though that I need to work harder to keep fit and do the activities that I want to do.”
Mrs Patmore is one of 10 from Saunders Higgins Insurance Brokers who have entered as a team in the Burnie Ten.
Mrs Patmore turned 50 this year and thought she “may as well take part”.
She has been regularly walking and jogging throughout the week and also does a running session with Lakeland Fitness that is specifically for Burnie Ten entrants.
“I am aiming to run at least half of the Burnie Ten but would like to do more,” Mrs Patmore said.
She also does three strength training sessions a week for her general health and fitness.
Mrs Patmore and the team at Saunders Higgins are supportive of the Project 5000 campaign.
This is a joint initiative between The Advocate and Burnie Sports and Events which aims to get the entries to 5000.
“It is an excellent idea. The more people are motivated to help their health and fitness the better,” Mrs Patmore said.
“If people are stressed after work I would recommend going for a jog or a walk and you will soon feel better.”The B&E Burnie Ten will be held on October 21. Sign up online at www.burnieten南京夜网.au
