★ WEEK 2 POST is up now: healthunlocked.com/bridgeto...
Welcome to the first week of the TAKE IT TO THE BRIDGE WINTER SPEED CHALLENGE!!!

There's still time to join - comment below! There’re 68 Challengers so far - can we make it past 70???
This Challenge will run for FOUR WEEKS, from Monday November 23rd to Sunday December 20th.
Here's what you do:
★ PICK YOUR DISTANCE: 1 MILE or 1 KM.
NB - only ONE Speed Challenge per person, and only one result per week please!!! 😘
★ WARM UP before you start!
I've posted a couple of videos at the bottom to give you some ideas about dynamic warm ups. Most of the movements in them can be done indoors so you can save your outside time for running. After the dynamic movements, finish your warm up with a jog for a km or so - you certainly want to get past that Toxic 10 before hitting your speed challenge!!
★ RUN your chosen distance AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!
You do not need to run every week, just do whatever you can fit in.
★ YOUR FIRST RUN GIVES YOU YOUR BASELINE TIME
I will calculate the change (increase or decrease) in the speed of each of your subsequent runs, compared to your baseline. I will present this in seconds, and also as a percentage.
★ POST THE TIME IT TOOK YOU TO RUN YOUR CHOSEN DISTANCE (in min:sec) on my weekly posts in the comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please note well: I WILL NOT LOOK AT YOUR TIMES ON STRAVA OR ANY OTHER WEBSITE, you must post them here on HealthUnlocked.
I will POST WEEKLY (Monday) updates, to collect your results, and put all the results into the spreadsheet, which you can view here:
PLEASE NOTE: I will update the results - please do not request access to the spreadsheet!
Good luck, and have fun!!!!
