Hello runners. It’s the first of a brand new month and I’m absolutely thrilled to be hosting my very first Quest here!
December is one of my most favourite months and so I’m super excited about reading all your plans and being with you along the way week by week.
Thanks to Instructor57 for keeping the baton safe and hosting beautifully last month. There were so many fab goals and achievements!
December can be a tricky month for our running. For some of us we have shorter daylight time, the weather can be against us, all sorts of colds and flu and other viruses (😠) abound and work deadlines to meet. If you consider the extra shopping we tend to do and the busier than usual social life (🤞) in the lead to Christmas then it’s a wonder we get out at all! Of course, our friends from the other side of the world are going into summer so they no doubt have different challenges to face 😎
But December can also be a magical month. The outline of bare trees against a grey sky, early morning frosts sprinkling everything with a magic cover. The stark beauty of buildings highlighted in the winter light. The sight of warm breath in the cold air….. ooh I’m getting carried away now 🤗 I love winter running and so I tend to go a bit overboard sometimes 🙄
But, without further ado let’s get this Quest started!
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.
We ask that you are a C25K graduate before joining the Quest. The reason for this is that pre-graduation your weeks are pretty much structured according to the C25K programme, and we wouldn’t want the Quest to interfere with that.
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
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 want to ..............
Every week I will put up a new post and we can all chat about how we are doing.
So, who’s up for a bit of stardust? Let’s try to make this December as sparkling and dazzling as we can!!!! ✨✨💫💫🌟🌟
