Hi and welcome to the 3rd week of the quest
Back home now and my internet is so much better. The only thing to contend with is ios8 software and ipad 2 but that isn't going to get better so I will learn to be patient with it.
I have found my thoughts on running jumping all over the place this week. I have discovered bounce music for running (such fun). Thinking about trying the Jeff Galloway method and debating about training for a longer distance run.
It has made me realise that there are so many variations to our sport we don't have to get bogged down in the same old same old if we don't want to. Up until now I have really enjoyed the comfort of repetition but I think I am ready to shake things up a bit as I have had the revelation I am not progressing so I need to find a way that works for me.
As we always say here we are all different and maybe I need a different approach to progress. The one thing I do know is I never want to give up running.
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.
