"Living in the Now"
Whatever and Wherever that Now is for you.
We are all in a different locations. all in different situations and all at different stages of our running. So, wonderfully, our own, Nows, will be different, also.
The year is moving on and where I am, currently, the changing season is beginning to make its presence felt. Autumn is my favourite time and running in Autumn is just ...wow!!!!!
I bet many of us have really different favourites too So let's all move forward and focus where we are, and enjoy !
Okay! I do ramble on don't I ?
My targets are sort of still on track, but , I only managed one run last week. I was still finding flat bits in readiness for Sunday! Legs are strong, plenty of stamina and that, thank you S & F, is due to the ongoing Yoga and Plankathon workouts! I have not been long back up to 5K so am still listening to my best advisor ( my body ), and on my run, I stopped deliberately at 4K ( after a quick last 1K ), to make sure I had plenty left! Hoping to go out and run the Race of Life route this morning ( just to see).
I need to know how you are doing, although, reading your posts...you are doing incredibly and many of you reaching target goals early and able to tweak and extend ideas.
One of the most pleasing things for me, is to get the overwhelming feeling that you are listening to your bodies, pushing only, when you feel it necessary and that you are capable of it and, best of all enjoying the whole thing. What better target could be met, than that? You are completely inspirational!
Please reply and let us all know where you are and how much fun you are having!
If you are new to the Quest,, this is the THIRD week of the September Quest - so do, please, feel free to join in with the fun
What is the Quest?
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.
The Quest takes one calendar month. You can join at any point during that time.
I ask that you are a C25K Graduate before joining the Quest. The reason for this is that pre-graduation your week is very much structured according to the C25K programme, and 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 Stretch and Strength exercises to your weekly routine
This is a personal challenge, so it's completely up to you! If you want to join, all you have to do is comment below with something like:
I would like to join the Quest, or, count me in! I would like to...
Each week, I will put up a new post, so we can chat and see how we are all doing!
Maybe, we may even get a late, warm spell, as we often do at this time of the year too!
Wishing you a wonderful week of safe and happy running! 💥

That quotation contains the words spoken by an inspirational man. I watched a feature on BBC Breakfast about a man named Nick Gardner, not a runner, but someone who we might look to for a perspective on, what we do, how we do it and how we are able to do anything we wish too.
His words resonated with me, when he was asked, how he coped, how he managed to achieve what he his doing, and his reply was, "...by living in the Now."
Please, if you get chance, do seek out some information on him x
I met my online target for Sunday's race and thank you, to all those folk who have donated xx
