It's the penultimate week of Jantastic and our team is currently lying in 12th place. I thought it might be nice to compile a brief overview of how our team came about, to send to Jantastic. Do you have a story about what NHS Couch to 5K has meant to you, or perhaps how running has made a difference in your life? If you have any interesting anecdotes or achievements you'd be happy to share, please drop me a message.
Remember to log your week 10 runs by 8am on Tuesday 11th March to make sure they are counted. If you are looking for a new challenge to follow on from Jantastic, the 5x50.org challenge starts on the day Jantastic ends (March 30th). There is an NHS C25K team, and you will find more information about it here: healthunlocked.com/couchto5...
NB. For the final four weeks, I thought it would be nice to have a 'roll call' of all of our team members, and their goals for March. I am asking everyone to send me a PM (so I don't miss anybody) detailing your Jantastic targets for March (number of runs, your distance run for each of the 4 weeks, and your time trial details) then I can put these in the first posts for weeks 9-12. There is still time to get your name 'up in lights' as one of our incredible team - just send me your targets and I will add you. There are 68 team members listed on Jantastic, although some have not been active (perhaps joining our team in error), so it would be great to have a roll call here of all the actual participants from this site. We have all been inspired to do this challenge by our experience of c25k and this community, and I would like to think that it will also serve as an inspiration for future runners. Thank you to those who have already sent me your targets - you should see your name in the table above! (If you've sent me your details but I haven't added you yet, I will do so soon - it's been a busy week!). Once you have done your timed run, don't forget to let me know your actual time to go in the table too.
