How to stay motivated
We asked Pulse 8 member, Colin Blears, to share his fitness journey from IT businessman and entrepreneur to Round the World Yacht Race competitor. His experience is extraordinary, but, he says entirely achievable. Read on to find out how he did it and how you can too.
Just a couple of years ago Colin Blears wasn’t an athlete. At 34 he realised he had been working since the age of 16, almost without a break. He noticed that his profile was filling out in line with his age. He had been using the gym in a fairly unengaged way and realised he really needed to make a change. He decided to set himself a challenge. He picked the London Marathon. In an unlikely turn of events he was awarded a place and suddenly, with just 16 weeks to get fit, he had to learn to run.
