I have finally completed my October goal of running my first ever 10k. A total of 40k run in October. It was harder (and slower!) than I thought but I have my first running blister for proof! Thanks to my friends and family for running with me. Thank you for all your support and donations to Parkinson’s UK. I have enjoyed the challenge and will be look forward to my next ones in the New Year – swimming and cycling!
I am doing a virtual run for Parkinson’s UK throughout October. I am planning on running 10k each week in October with a 10k in one go at the end of the month – so 50k in total this month. I have made a start this week with 3 k on Monday. I thought it was about time I challenged myself as I am always encouraging you guys to do more – so here I go! This will be the first stage of my challenges in 2017/2018 with a cycle ride and a swim (maybe open water – I am having swimming lessons which are hard!). So if you fancy sponsoring me then go to the link below:
Finally it has been recognised that specialist physiotherapy will benefit early -stage Parkinson’s. And it is exciting as NICE has highlighted research into physiotherapy and Parkinson’s.

What a busy summer! Thanks to all of those who attended the BOOT CAMPS in Hughenden Manor Grounds, along with the cows! The Walk and Pub Lunch saw about 20 of us braving the rain and the sun – but I was the only rainbow around!
Now heading into Autumn we are back to the weekly classes starting this week in Amersham, Beaconsfield and Prestwood. More new challenges lie ahead!
We are pleased to announce 2 more classes and another venue in Beaconsfield.
Thursday Mornings 10-11am and 11.15 – 12.15 at St Michaels Hall, Grenfell Road, Beaconsfield. HP9 2BN
Classes to start early June.
” Just finishing my second 6 week session and I feel fitter and my posture is better – bring on the next session” Andy
“People who join the course will do better than those who don’t!” David
“I’m a cynical old sod – but I’ve loved it, even on days when I’ve lacked motivation. Structured exercise is SO important for PD” Andy
“The PD Power course is giving me a greater ability to fight the onset of PD”. Clive
“Annie is a caring and compassionate practitioner who shows you how to help yourself combat Parkinson’s in a practical way using exercise. I am so glad my nurse put me in touch with her”.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed Annie’s classes – she makes them fun and even though they are hard at times she never pushes you too hard!”
“The sessions on balance and posture were a real eye opener for me”.
“It really helps with general fitness, suppleness, & to meet other people in the same situation as you”
I can’t believe another 6 weeks has gone by with the Rainbow Warriors working harder and harder each week!
We now have a well earned break (apart from doing your daily PD Power exercises of course!) and will be back fully ‘powered- up’ on:
THURSDAY 20th APRIL 6-7pm AMERSHAM SCHOOL and
FRIDAY 21st APRIL 2-3pm and 3-4pm PRESTWOOD.
HAPPY EASTER TO YOU ALL.
Thursday 20th April – 25th May – Amersham School 6-7 pm
Friday 21st April – 26th May
Sprinters, Prestwood 2-3pm and 3-4pm
It has been an amazing start to the year and to PD Power with all 3 classes on offer full for the next block.
Look out for more classes coming in April.
