Fleet of Foot Through February Quest, week 1 continues, feel free to join🌷🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻

Hello all. Hope everyone has had a good January, and all are ready to welcome in this new valentine month of February. But more importantly let’s hope it will be a runners frost free, fleet of foot February.

The days are beginning to draw out a touch and spring is not too far around the corner, so why not set some new goals to move you towards that bright new season?

This is Week 1 of our Fleet of Foot through February Quest. The Quest will run through to the end of the month. As the 1st February is midweek, we will launch week 2 on Monday 12th, with weekly Monday update posts thereafter. Happy running everyone!

What the Quest is;

The Quest takes one calendar month . You can join any point within that time.

The 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 completing the programme, 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. Each week, I will pin a new post where all the members of the quest can talk about how things are going.

So if you want 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 of the Quest, there will be a certificate that you can download to keep.

Wishing you a happy healthy week

Hi Millsie, so far so good.

Last week I managed two runs of Wk4 up to 10k(again). The 4k and on Sunday the 8k run...and am happy to report a 5kpb during my Sunday run😊

I'm up to date with Rignolds squat challenge and beginning to feel like I'm doing it right😆...

This week I have a 5k another 4k and a 9k at the weekend all being well.

Have a good week everyone 😊xx

Skwaaats...

And a 10k run during which I nearly had to skwaat due to horrendous GI issues :O Sorry if TMI :D but back up to 10k, hooray, which is a Good Thing because some rotter posted that it's only 4 weeks to the Ashbourne 10. How can this be??? So only another 6k to add, uphill, and I'll be fine. Fine. Just fine.

My gym is brilliant though, and I'm very happy with the way that is progressing.

Happy running everyone :)

That charity run is covered with those distances Gary. Dont forget to build hill repeats slowly, over several sessions to avoid overuse injury 👍🏼

Thanks for the advice, not really looking forward to the repeats so it will be slow and steady :)

No running for good and bad reasons.

Food intake recorded every day though. Not especially pretty.

I'm still on track with my Feb Quest. In fact I have cracked it early with exactly 60 seconds off my prevous best 10km time on Sunday. I'm going to carry on and see if I can get another second or two off by the 28th.

I've got another mini sub quest this week which is to get my friend to the end of Couch to 5k and cover 5km including the walking at each end so she has a 5km time on Strava to be proud of. Only one more run to go...

After an ugly week of call, where I worked too hard, got too stressed and run down and averaged only a few hours of sleep a night, I am now battling a cold. We are also currently in another Extreme cold warning with windchills in the -40C so what should've been my perfect week to achieve 3 runs will turn into a week with no runs ☹️. I've decided my body is telling me it's time to take a break. We have 9 day holiday beginning next Friday, filled with lots of travel, skiing, and snowmobiling so am going to take this week to try and catch up on some sleep and do my best to battle this virus. Best of luck to everyone on their quests this month. It feels like mine is quickly falling by the wayside but we'll see how it all plays out once we return from our holiday.

I think a rest from running will do you good Allie... since hitting that 10k goal in November you have achieved some brilliant distances and your running legs must be feeling tired... never mind the rest of you! I bet a break will give everything a chance to catch up, and when you start back to running will feel fresher and more energised.

I hope you have an amazing holiday 😎😊xxx
