Meet David, one of our co-founders! Here’s a little insight into his fitness goals, challenges and more.
Racefully co-founder, lawyer
My Current Fitness Plan:
Not what it should be. Run twice a week (would like it to be three times). Try to do an average of 10,000 steps a day (not succeeding). Think about adding some strength training exercises to what I do (but failing). Wishing I could play more tennis and do more rock climbing (not finding the time).
Top Fitness Tip:
If you’re comfortable when you’re exercising, you’re not pushing yourself hard enough.
My Biggest Fitness Fail:
Not finding more tennis buddies. Not yet having done a half-marathon (or a marathon).
The Athlete I Wish I Could Be:
I guess I should pick a runner, but actually it’s Nadal.
The Biggest Fitness Challenge I’ve Taken On:
Most recently, I did the London to Cardiff 24hr team run with Chris and a number of other friends. I hadn’t expected to enjoy it, but even though it involved getting only one hour’s ‘sleep’ (in the bright sunshine at 5am in a country car park) it was great fun.
The Big Fitness Challenge I Want To Take On:
I’d definitely do the London-Cardiff run again (but wouldn’t mind if it was London-Paris instead!). I’d love to see if I could get my 10K pace to sub 50 minutes. I’d like to do more fell-running (but I live in central London, so don’t think that’s going to happen…) And I think I might like to do a marathon. Maybe.
My Favourite Fitness Kit:
What’s in my gym bag:
Just my running kit.
