Tips from Darren Maule on how to prepare for the Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk

We received some tips today from Darren Maule on how to prepare for the Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk.

They sound legit.

1.  Don't enter the Big Walk if you don't know how to walk!  If you are not sure about this - get up off your chair, move one foot in front of the other and if your body follows - you are walking! Congratulations! NOW you can enter the Big Walk.

2.  If you are a relatively new Big Walker, perhaps consider putting on two pairs of socks.  They will rub on each other and not on your uninitiated footsies.

Um, I think we will rather share with you some expert advice:

  • Talk to your doctor before starting a new fitness programme
  • Plan and track your training programme
  • Make sure you add stretching to your training routine
  • Make sure you get the right gear!  Invest in quality footwear for training and the walk, make sure they fit well.  Wear them in before the big day to avoid blisters.

A Handful of Keys is sheer good fun

Keith Millar: WOW! Now that’s entertainment!
Ian von Memerty and Roelof Colyn are simply superb in A Handful of Keys currently on at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre.              
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, with over 1,180 performances and having been seen by more than 375,000 people A Handful of Keys is one of the most popular, and enduring, South African musical productions of all time.
There are tributes to lady singer/pianists such as Norah Jones, Alicia Keys and Nina Simone, and men such as Fats Domino, Fats Waller and Billy Joel. South African music is not ignored with a wonderful parody performance of The Click Song, Pata Pata and Mama Tembu’s wedding. An extraordinary item in the programme is The History of Broadway Musical where no less than 143 segments of Broadway musical songs are played and sung in 12 minutes. A virtuoso piano performance.
A Handful of Keys runs until April 27 at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre with shows from Tuesday to Saturday at 20h00 and with extra shows on Saturday and Sunday at 15h00. Tickets R150 booked through Computicket.
