Hi Quest Friends! 👋
This month is flying by. The sun has been shining for most of us here in the UK, the wind has dropped, buds are appearing, birds are singing, mud has disappeared (hallelujah!), my legs have been cracked out (😱), and life for us runners is looking up. Just over 7 weeks until PR starts back up (🤞🤞🤞) and the Quest keeps rolling on. Soooo, how are you getting on with yours? Tell us! Not long to go now - keep up the good work! 👊
Mine has been fun, I’m pleased to say. I’m a notorious disliker of all things fast, but I’m coming to terms that JogRunSprint is actually ok! I incorporated it into (not) PR last weekend which gave it some purpose, and wasn’t a million miles off my PB, even taking into account I only slow jogged the 5 minute warmup, cooldown and the pause sections between sets. So my faster running must have been ok! Go me. 😀 I’ll do it again this weekend - can’t wait (can’t believe I’m saying that!) 😂
Do let Dexy5 and I know how you have been getting on over the last week. Often the thought of getting out the door is worse than the act itself, but we almost always enjoy it once out. Sometimes we need that push, and that’s why having a Quest is a wonderful thing. It keeps us all accountable and we can share our experiences. 🏃♀️🏃♂️
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. It takes one calendar month but you can join at any point during that time.
Some popular goals are:
★ To run three times a week
★ To slowly increase distance
★ To train for a specific race
★ To add Stretch and Strength exercises to your weekly routine
So in case you want to get going now, or need reminding what your Quest was, here’s the link to the first week’s post.
We’ll check in again next week. Have a great time! 😀
