Hi there and welcome to the new quest for April. As we see the days getting longer and the air start to get warmer I can’t think of a better time to set some new goals. So have a think about what you want to achieve this month, write it down here and go nail it πŸ’₯

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 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.

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

Happy Panthering

I would like to join the quest please...trying to get back to the 10K mark where I was before the dreaded IC...:)

I do, of course, already look like the lady in the pink outfit... with shorter hair:)

ju-ju-Administrator in reply to Oldfloss

Obvs.... and good plan 😎

Hi ju-ju - I'd like to join the quest and will be working on moving to running on alternate days (as opposed to 3x weekly which due to work sometimes slips down to twice) and slowly increasing the distance I can cover (6k has been my limit so far) - though think if I imagine I'm trying to escape the people in this picture this will be entirely possible πŸ˜‚

ju-ju-
ju-ju-Administrator in reply to DebJogsOn

That sounds like a great plan....

After a few weeks off I want to join to get back to running three times a week even if they are short and sweet... I will get back to this even if it kills me x

Hi Juju and happy bank holiday Monday!

I think it's time for me to start your 10k plan again. It's 4Β°C and tipping it down with rain out there...but there's no time like the present, so off I go. β˜Ίβ˜”

ju-ju-Administrator in reply to Sandyscroll

Great plan, and you too, 😎

Can I join please Ju-Ju?

I want to build on my March quest which was a run or walk every day. That one went well so for April I will run every other day, and walk on all non run days. I shall stick to my minimum of 2.5k daily but will expect to average more than that over the month.

It is part of my plan of continued rehabilitation from the IC, building those knees!

Happy running all!

Hi Ju, please can I join, although I won't be doing much until 10th April other than cheering from the couch!

Goals this month are:

- carry on with 5x50

- re-do Rig's skwaat programme

- start running again on 10th April (hooray!)

- bring home the Longhorn bling (s-l-o-w-l-y)

- investigate a Tai Chi class (interesting) and a ballet class for *ahem* older people

- possibly volunteer at Parkrun again because it was great fun :)

Happy running, everyone!

(And edited to ask, if I'm good, please can I have the bloke in the photo if no one else wants him? :D )

Oooooh... I wanna be in but I don't really know which goals to choose...

Dare I say "cycle ride"? The access onto the White Peak Loop has finally been sorted.

13k run (which will be my longest to date)

And I really do want to get a grip and lose a couple of kilos as I have crept over that BMI line... and since I suspect the line itself is a little overgenerous to me anyway...

Under all that I'd like to keep up with what I did last month: the daily dog walk/run, 10 squats and food diary... and get another 5k along the Derwent on my virtual swim.

Anniemurph
AnniemurphGraduate10 in reply to GoogleMe

A goodly selection of goals. Glad the cycle access has been sorted.

The daily run/walk, squats & food diary are all going well. It's looking good!

Great goals, and don’t be too hard on yourself with the BMI. I’m right at the top of mine!!!

Juju, I would like to join the Quest. I will commence stretching exercises given to me by a physical therapist and will do them every other day. I injured my knee some time ago and will try getting back to running as I was before winter.

That sounds like a good plan. Get yourself strong and you will come back stronger and better 😎

I’ve signed up to a 10K at the end of May so April quest is x3 runs a week following your training plan

Curlygurly2
Curlygurly2Graduate10

I'm in please Ju-Ju

I'm getting back on my feet, it's a bit up and down, but I've done a few runs and not keeled over, so I guess I'm doing ok!

I'll be running in Spain next week, then it's back to hilly France, where I shall probably begin with some walks, but hopefully I'll get a few runs in before the end of the quest.

I just need to get back to running 3 times a week. Lurgies, the weather, new pup, and poorly pup have left me just not wanting to make the time to run.

I would like to join please. My quest is to get better at full body exercise not just running. So I have downloaded the "Seven" app mentioned in women's running this month. I am going to try and do a 7 min workout every day. I missed 1 April but have done 2, 3 and 4 so far :-)

ju-ju-
ju-ju-Administrator in reply to Langley-Loper

great plan, I will add you :)

I graduated from C25K today. My plan for the rest of April is to consolidate, with 30 minute runs, 3x per week for the rest of the month, trying out some C25K+ podcasts to mix things up a bit.

April 30th I'll start your 10 is the magic number, already printed and on the fridge with the plan ending on a 10k race day!

ju-ju-Administrator in reply to ToniCR

Fantastic, that all sounds like a great plan....

Please count me in, I run for 30 mins x3 weekly but have not yet achieved 5k without walking some of it. So my quest is to increase the distance/ time I can run nonstop for the magical

ju-ju-
ju-ju-Administrator in reply to Not2old2

Good plan and realistic too

β€˜5k’ is what my last post should have finished with. Sorry

Please can I join? I have a target of running 25 miles in April to kick me into running more regularly. Currently up to 10 miles since April 1st? Thank you Ju-Ju
