iMove for health, do you?

We are not sure how much energy witches
expend on their broomsticks, but the
women of the Witches on Broomsticks team
walked, ran and cycled their way to victory.
The five Palmerston North City Council
staff -- four from the human resources
department, and corporate librarian
Melissa Downey -- won the most iMove trips
section of the BNZ Workplace Challenge.
Organised by Sport Manawatu for five
weeks from October to December, teams
recorded the number of minutes of physical
exercise they did each day, plus the number
of iMove trips -- active transport trips.
Witches on Broomsticks, a play on the
sometimes unfavourable image of human
resources staff, did 166 iMove trips.
Ms Downey bikes to work, to meet
friends, and to go to beading class.
It's surprising how quickly it all just
She also has an arrangement with her
husband that enables her to bike to Massey
University to pick up her children from
creche then drive them home. It also means
her husband gets exercise.
Ms Downey was conscious the silly
season was approaching and thought the
challenge was a good opportunity to get
some exercise before maybe having a little
bit to eat and drink''.
During the challenge she also made a
more conscious effort to walk places.
Timing was not on Emma Waters' side for
the challenge. She was training for a half
marathon in Auckland and completed it the
week before the challenge started, so none
of her marathon minutes could be counted
for the challenge.
Mrs Waters is expecting her first baby in
July and suffered morning sickness during
the challenge. But she still made a signifi-
cant contribution to her team's tally, with
indoor netball on Monday and Tuesday
nights and going to the gym.
She is usually too tired to walk home but
took advantage of some nice weather in
November to get in some extra iMove trips.
Nicky Sawers, Christine Quinn and
Debra O'Donnell all walk to or from work
regularly. Mrs Sawers also walks or runs to
the gym at Massey University.
