Hi and welcome to the 1st Runnervesary quest wk5
It's great to see so many new people joining up on the forum over the last couple of weeks. New Years resolutions really do seem to help some get motivated. I remember when I used to say I want to get fit in the new year. This year as I thought about that, I was happy to report that I am fit. I might not be the slimmest I have ever been but I defiantely am the fittest. The fact that I have kept up with each and every quest over the last year has helped me. Sometimes as we strive to get a better pace or longer distance it is easy to forget how far we have come. So as part of your New Years Resolutions please take time to acknowledge all of your own achievements and give yourself a pat on the back.
Happy new year.
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.
