Hi and welcome to the Mad March Movement quest week 4
I was really itching to get back to running after having 5 days off. I had pushed my body a little too hard and it was kicking up a right fuss. I also did a treadmill run. The thing I have realised is that for the first time in my life I am actually an outdoor sort of person. I missed running past things and feeling the fresh air. I have always considered myself as a bit of a geek sat indoors working on my computer but I am a bit of both now and it feels good.
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.
