Fitness instructor worked on my chest today. I am glad there was no heatwave today because exercising would have been much harder. I did my usual 15 minutes warmup walking.on the running machine, this usually gets me very ready for what is ahead. Instructor for me to lay down on the chest exercise bar and got me started with no weight. Then after those reps be started adding the weight and decreasing the reps. I told him I didn't want to know how much he was putting on. I got to, what I thought was my limit but he encouraged me to push, wrote it was hard... My arms were shaking to push the weights bar up... I kept pushing with the great encouragement from my instructor. After that I was on the rowing machine, trying to go 1500 metres in 5 minutes. I managed 1000 in 5 and a half minutes... Wow I was wobbly after that! Then did my usual cool down stretches to finish off. I just know tomorrow is going to hurt but I feel really good for piecing beyond what I thought was my limits. I could never do this alone and glad I have encouragement! This afternoon I have swimming with my niece and nephews... Hoping I can still move my arms by then! 😀

I get so choked up reading and receiving these donations to Cancer Research UK after my fundraising last Sunday. I never thought it would affect me this way. Nor did I know how much I was touching others that have all been affected by Cancer. I still need to collect all the physical donations to add to this total. I am blown away by the generosity. Thanks everyone! @cr_uk #cancer #fundraising #speedway #charity #nevergiveup

As my fundraising has spanned different charities over the last few years, I thought I would change my social media sites to represent this. There are certain ones I can't change unless I start from complete scratch. So search for "speedwayforcharity" on any of the social networks pictured and you will have the new links. Night all! 😀

Received another online donation this morning (thanks Roy!). I have had a chance to count all the money from the donation bucket used on Sunday I'm still hoping to raise a little more after I edit together the video taken from my helmet and trackside. Need to buy another hard drive for the computer before I can do that though.

I still can't move my legs without pain, if I stop moving for any length of time takes a while to get moving again. My personal trainer is going to love torturing me tomorrow! 😀

If you want to donate online (money goes straight to +Cancer Research UK ) then go here: http://www.justgiving.com/formylostlovedones

The online donations will stay open for a while until my video is edited. Thanks for the support everyone!

Everything lays in a heap from when I got in, did not have the energy to move it. Best I could do was lay on the sofa under my duvet. Still need to count through the bucket of money, feels quite heavy! Showered this morning slower than normal, taking a bit more time to do everything. Teaching today will be "fun" 😀 +Cancer Research UK

Here is one of the torture devices in the gym today! Apart from the humidity today making me sweat standing still, there is a certain rush by getting pushed to and maybe beyond the limits that you thought existed. #cancer #fundraising #speedway #charity #nevergiveup #spondylolisthesis #scoliosis

Weirdly I am looking forward to weight training on Wednesday. It beams with positivity with my trainer pushing me further than I would do myself.

Post-workout food, didn't even think I would be able to do anything since I can't walk to well after Sunday's activities. Personal trainer pushed me and I think I feel better for it. Checked through video footage I got on Sunday and it's pretty good. I hope you are all well. #workout #buzz #pain #pushit #speedway #nevergiveup #fundraising +Cancer Research UK

Can't thank these guys enough, without them I wouldn't have been able to do this! Thanks to @little_l88 for keeping me stretched out and fed. It's been such an amazing day, it's hard to take out all in. I did not give up, I did not give in, I completed all the rides I set out to do today! Just hope my mum was looking down on me today, keeping me safe. I wore my purple (her favourite colour) shirt today, to and from the venue. After alone and in the changing rooms, it all became a bit too much and I had a cry because you are not here. Two years since my mum died and I hope I made her proud today. #cancer #fundraising #speedway #nevergiveup +Cancer Research UK
