She did it!!!
Josephine Bush, is the first British Woman to complete the Amundsen Expedition in Norways Hardangervidda, known as the hardest ski race in the world!
100 km in only 50 hours and 55 mins pulling a 40kg pulk.
We are so proud of you!
This is what she had to say,
“It’s a funny thing setting your sights on something, working towards it and then achieving it. There is a moment of quiet reflection always on the achievement. This event was gruelling and challenging in so many ways – the physical and mental demands are huge. You have to prepare well and not cut corners. Your body is your greatest asset so you work with it to push it forward beyond what you think it can do. Working with Sue Dawson was the string to my bow. I was physically fit – I had endurance ingrained in my muscles and cardio fitness. What I lacked though was solid core strength and stability. The meticulous nature of her Pilates training attuned me to my bodies imbalances. It helped me understand at a deep level how I was moving and enabled me to connect with small changes that made a huge difference. Such changes matter when you are pulling a 40kg pulk day and night over 100km. I finished the race with literally no aches or pains in the legs or back, something I had, prior to meeting Sue, contended with in training. So Pilates works. I’m proof!
And as to that end of race, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be, as you realise that the real joy is the journey to get there. What you learn, who you meet and where that takes you.”
I love the last part, so profound and humbling!! it is always the journey!! and recognising that, is the key to happiness 🙌🏼⭐️
