Remember Remember to run in November Quest week 1. Feel free to join 🕺🏽🎃💥

Hi there and welcome to the new second month of the new Quest in its new home. So as we move to the colder end of the year with darker days and beautiful autumnal colours let's embrace the opportunities it brings and set some new goals for the month.

What the quest is:-

The quest takes one month . You can join any time within those weeks.

The main aim of the quest is to help you find a focus or goal that you would like to achieve by the end of the Quest period.

I ask that you will be a graduate to join the quest. The main reason I ask this is that while you are doing the program your plan is very structured so I wouldn't want the quest to interfere with that.

Most popular goals are:-

To run three times a week

To slowly increase distance

To train for a specific race

To add In Stretch and strength exercises

As you can see they are personal to yourself and it's totally your own choice.

Every week I will pin a new post where all the members of the quest can talk about how things are going.

So if you wanted to join all you have to do is put:

I would like to join the quest, or count me in and then I would like to. ..............

Your name will then be added to the top post and every week your name will be in the quest until the end.

At the end there will be a certified cate you can download to keep.

Wishing you a happy healthy week

Count me in!

This month, I want to reach my 10k goal, by continuing to run 3 times weekly using Ju-ju's C25k up to 10k programme (currently on week 5, whoohoo!). To help prepare for further distances, I would also like to try and work at least one day of cross training in per week this month. Cross training may be using the elliptical, strength training, core work, or if the snowfall continues, snowshoeing or downhill skiing 🎿 - whatever meets my fancy that day 😊

Count me in Ju although I am on the couch at the mo

I have a fell race on the 11th and a marathon on the 19th. A 10k race in early December and a half marathon in spring plus some other bits and pieces

So I need to run through winter

I have asked OH for gym membership for my birthday Dunno if he will oblige 😀. I hope to crack on with core stuff at home once my hip is less painful

I had the most awful shock this week - I finally got a swim in on the last day of the Quest and went to log it on my virtual river Derwent swim only to find it had all disappeared with notices that it was being shut down on the website and people needed to have completed their challenges. Well I've just made it to 50% of mine after over 3 years. Fortunately I have managed to find my way to the data but need to sort all that out.

My fitness goals for the month are (keeping it simple and achievable):

To achieve my first bit of running bling with a 5k

To swim 2kms total (I think that might take me just about to Ambergate)

To complete 4 taught online yoga sessions

(In my current 'career' of attending endless workshops as a parent carer I am off to one on outcomes this week. Will be interesting, after all these Quests, to see if there are new ways to suck eggs.)

No! Did they say why they have shut it down? What a shame.

Looking forward to seeing your bling - remember to post.

And also please post if you do learn anything new about outcomes - and more importantly, how to reach them. I failed to do yesterday's first day of the 60 day Core challenge despite being determined to start. Again.

Do two today. Think of it as a double up, you are well fit enough and the exercises look to be slightly different 😇

firstly what a shame about the swimming thats so sad... and secondly the workshops sound really interesting. Do share your wisdom with us :)

No, just looks like SwimEngland (as the official organisation are known this week) have had a re-vamp and are not going to host this on their website. They mention an app instead but it is very limited (and seems based around burning off a cream cake)

Hello ju-ju- , count me in please!

Goals this Quest? Hmmm... I have a Virtual 5k on the 11th which I would like to run faster than I have recently, so I'm aiming for 35mins. My fastest 5k was about 33 mins but I'm nowhere near that at the moment, somewhere around 38 mins I think. I'm not sure if I can take 3 mins off, that might be a bit ambitious but I will try!

Other than that, to do some work on the theoretical side. I am looking at the Garmin HM plan for my next HM and it uses HR zones. I have no idea what mine are. Also, I need to work out the dates and make the plan work so that the events I have booked fit in with the plan's events. Technical stuff - get me :D

My calves really took a beating on the downhills last Saturday, so I really tnink I need to commit to foam rolling/stretching on a regular basis - instead of forgetting.

I also need to make an appointment to get a massage. Which sounds easy, but I get anxious about those sorts of phone calls.

ouch, yes get that massage in!

I am the same... I put off ANY type of phonecall which is unfortunate in my line of work. I usually email to book my massages to avoid the call!

I can do phone calls for other people. It’s just my own I fail at 😔 Email is a life saver.

After a dip in running in October, I'm determined to keep going through November, but need to be realistic.

Idealistic goals: run 3x per week, do daily core exercises

More realistic goals: run 2x per week and do core exercises 3x per week

This month I aim to:

Do my exercises from the osteopath ( I am still on the IC but I am still allowed to run daily but it has to be slow and sticking to 17 miles a week)

Get back to 8 miles comfortably in the woods

Increase my weights at bodypump ( I really love it)

If I get the gym membership I can do things like body pump and all that stuff, none of which I’ve done before 😃

Speaking of stressful phone calls I had one today from iTunes Store in USA. My downloaded Audiofuel album, recently downloaded onto my iPhone, had just disappeared. Where’d it go. Not in my music purchased box nor nuffink The last time I used it was on my horrible run on Monday when my battery ran flat, as did I 🙄😃

Anyway this American Dutch sounding guy had to talk me through getting it back onto my phone. Well, sausage fingers, riffling through through my drawers for passwords then typing it all in while he was listening in to my blunderings 😁☺️😊 oh the stress 🙄. Anyway got it back ok but it was a good job I had kept my receipt! He never did say why it had disappeared without a trace 🤨

Count me in ... My goals are to keep increasing my distance by 10% each week and to do 3 days cardio training at the gym to try and increase my cardio fitness and bring down my heart rate when running which is quite high.

I'd like to join. I'm still working towards 10k, but by increasing time. So I did a 52 min run this morning. Slowly increasing the time of the long run each week is my plan.
