A LOCAL physiotherapist is looking for other health professionals to lead by example in taking part in a run/walk next week in the town park.
Corinne Evans, based in High Street, is organising a ‘Lunchtime Mile’ run, which is a circuit of the town park on Wednesday, April 26 at 1.10pm.
She wants doctors, nurses and others in the health profession to join her, but all are invited to take part.
Corinne says: “It’s ridiculously simple, astonishingly powerful and scientifically proven study after study. A few minutes physical activity a day can transform your health, body and mind.”
“In New Zealand a “green perscription” scheme that gets people moving outdoors has been running since 1998 and 8 out of every 10 GP’s have issued “green perscriptions” to patients.”
“A leisurely walker takes about 115-120 steps per minute and will cover a mile approximately 17-18 minutes. A brisk pace demands 135 steps per minute for a 15 minute mile. No time for exercise? You can easily do it on your lunch break!”
