PE Week 1

Morning to all students. We would encourage you all to take a screen time break and get some fresh air and physical activity. Some options for you this week:

1. Start training for the Couch to 5k event that we will hold in February. Use an app like Strava to record you walks/runs. Make sure to join the Blackwater Community School Strava Club.

2. Try a PE Class with Joe Wicks. There are live classes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9am. You can also watch back previous classes. Please see his channel here

3. Maybe a chance to do a home workout and practice your Gaeilge at the same time might appeal to you

4. Maybe you would benefit from this 30 minute Yoga for Beginners class aimed at teenagers

5. Sometime something simple as a walk is a great way to get a break. Aim for at least 10,000 steps a day and try increase the pace of your walk to work your heart a bit more.

The most important thing is to get out and get active. The WHO recommends an average of 60 minutes per day of moderate-to-vigorous intensity, mostly aerobic, physical activity, across the week. These 60 minutes do not have to be in one go, so all those little pieces of exercise add up.
