Welcome to the third week of the Turn Back Time Quest.
A description of what the quests are about is below.
This link was kindly put on the forum this weekend by IannadoTruffe and I thought it was such an interesting read it was worth a share. It's all about the difference between the runs you do each week and how not to over train. It's totally flexible so it fits in with your ability. For all of us that are training for speed, endurance or distance it is well worth a read.
Please post below if you would like your name to be added to the quest
The description of what the Quests are about are below.
What the quest is:-
The quest takes six weeks. You can join any time within that six weeks.
The main 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.
I ask that you will be a graduate or about to graduate to join the quest. The main reason I ask this is that while you are doing the program your plan is very structured so 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 In Stretch and strength exercises
As you can see they are personal to yourself and it's totally your own choice.
Every week I will pin a new post where all the members of the quest can talk about how things are going.
So if you wanted to join all you have to do is put
I would like to join the quest, or count me in and then I would like to. ..............
Your name will then be added to the top post and every week your name will be in the quest until the end.
At the end, only for those that would like to, we each put out longest run of the quest and it is then marked on a virtual run we are doing from John O Groats to Lands End.
Then it all starts again for another six week Quest.
