Hi and welcome to the Mad March Movement quest. The reason for the name is that over the next couple of months some of us are going to be faced with weather that makes it very difficult to get out, so the quest is to do something that keeps us going. As usual it can be whatever you would like it to be. If you can run that's great if you have to go Indoors to a gym that's is still keeping your fitness levels up. Even if your doing Nordic skiing, yes I think you know who I mean you can all still be part of the quest. The whole point of the quest is to help us keep our fitness levels up so let's be creative if it's covered in snow outside.
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.
