Just a reminder when the Mulled wine is flowing and the subject of a Charity Event for an absent friend or relative seems like a good idea that maybe before you sign up consider how to best make sure that it can become a reality and not just a disappointing letdown.
Don’t think enthusiasm and emotion can get you through. This is not a replacement for a sound intelligent training plan and possibly a quick MOT on old niggly injuries.
I have had may patients who put a lot of time an effort in and out of the gym or only to be disappointed or badly injured just before or during the event .
Get advice early so your event can be productive and enjoyable.
