#NETBALL - VIDEO nutrition with @madibrowne with #MoJoAFRICA

12:00 Diet for Netball - Powering Performance

Diet for netball - Madison Browne, netball co-Captain #1 Pilates Instructor | Teacher | Student | Health + Wellbeing Hustler - talks about nutrition before a top level performance - Supported by WSNet's HerMoJo programme

Getting ready for a match? It’s often the last 15 mins that winners win . . . or is it when losers lose? Sometimes you just run out of energy in those closing minutes. Could it be the fuel you’re using? Even before you start playing big competitions it’s worth getting the right fuel for a match or tournament.

Before – Avoid eating big meals within 2 hours of exercise. For an effective pre-game snack, try fruit, low fi bre carbs or cereal bars.

During – between quarters, on the subs bench or at half time, top up with a couple of Jelly Babies for fast releasing energy.

After – your body will be crying out for carbs, protein and fl uids so plan to eat something within 30 mins. Sometimes you feel less hungry then, so a yogurt, glass of semiskimmed milk or a sandwich is perfect. You can take it as soon as you come off the pitch, perhaps with a banana. A more structured, yet light, refuel might be an omelette with juice or water.

#HERMoJo - ♀ with Marathon Pioneer Kathrine Switzer .@261Fearless

16:15 Katherine Switzer's Boston Marathon Experience16

17:15

261 Fearless supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women more ACTIVE!

Switzer was born in Germany, the daughter of a major in the United States Army. Her family returned to the United States in 1949.[3] She graduated from George C. Marshall High School in Fairfax County, Virginia, then attended Syracuse University, where she studied journalism.She earned a bachelor's degree there in 1968 and a master's degree in 1972.

1967 Boston Marathon
While attending university, Switzer completed the race in 1967 under entry number 261 with the Syracuse Harriers athletic club, five years before women were officially allowed to compete in it. Her finishing time of approximately 4 hours and 20 minutes was nearly an hour behind the first female finisher, Bobbi Gibb (who ran unregistered). She registered under the gender-neutral "K. V. Switzer", which she says was not done to mislead the officials. She says she had long used "K. V. Switzer" to sign the articles she wrote for her university paper. Switzer was issued a number through an "oversight" in the entry screening process, and was treated as an interloper when the error was discovered. Race official Jock Semple attempted to physically remove her from the race. Switzer claims he shouted, "Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers." Switzer's boyfriend Tom Miller, who was running with her, shoved Semple aside and sent him flying, allowing her to proceed. Photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.

Afterwards, Boston Athletic Association director Will Cloney was asked his opinion of Switzer competing in the race. Cloney said, "Women can't run in the Marathon because the rules forbid it. Unless we have rules, society will be in chaos. I don't make the rules, but I try to carry them out. We have no space in the Marathon for any unauthorized person, even a man. If that girl were my daughter, I would spank her."

Because of her run, the AAU barred women from all competitions with male runners, violaters to lose the right to compete in any races. Switzer, with other women runners, tried to convince the Boston Athletic Association to allow women to participate in the marathon. Finally, in 1972, women were welcome to run the Boston Marathon officially for the first time ever. Jock Semple, the man who had previously attempted to remove Switzer from the race, was instrumental in this formal admission of female runners.

Later competition and work
Switzer was the women's winner of the 1974 New York City Marathon, with a time of 3:07:29 (59th overall). Her personal best time for the marathon distance is 2:51:37, at Boston in 1975.

Switzer was named Female Runner of the Decade (1967–77) by Runner’s World Magazine and received an Emmy for her work as a television commentator. She wrote Running and Walking for Women over 40 in 1997. She released her memoir, Marathon Woman, in April 2007 on the 40th anniversary of her first running the Boston Marathon. In April 2008, Marathon Woman won the Billie Award for journalism for its inspiring portrayal of women in sports. When visiting the Boston Marathon, Switzer is glad to see other female runners:

'When I go to the Boston Marathon now, I have wet shoulders—women fall into my arms crying. They're weeping for joy because running has changed their lives. They feel they can do anything.'
She was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 2011 for creating a social revolution by empowering women around the world through running. Since 1967, she has worked to improve running opportunities for women in different parts of the world.

#HERMoJo ♀ Loop #PINGPONG in the Bar with .@TableTennisENG

11:30 Ping Pong Pubs & Cafes - fun getting ACTIVE

12:30

LOOP Social Table Tennis programme supports #HERMoJo - more women more ACTIVE!

At LOOP, we believe table tennis is ideally suited to cafés, bars and pubs, and similar venues.  The game is as sociable or competitive as the players want it to be and a single table can be enjoyed by up to 20 people at any one time.

There are lots of ping pong pubs and cafés already popping up all over the place.  

♦ Table Tennis is a vital part of pub and café culture and leads a return of pub games

♦ Pub table tennis tables are focal points where friends and strangers meet, laugh and play

♦ New forms of social leagues, ladders and cups thrive across every village, town and city

We’re already working with a number of independent bars, pub chains and breweries to build a thriving pub LOOP culture, where table tennis leads the way.
