Hi and welcome to the "How much chocolate" Quest week 1
The quest has got it's name from the fact that it finishes the week after Easter and maybe some chocolate might be consumed.
I was wondering if I am alone with this phenomenon I have started to encounter. I was out on Saturday at a party and there were lots of new people to meet. I am a nervous, shy sort of person in big crowds so stick to comfortable topics, for me that is running and food (nutrition). I noticed that everytime I said I run to a new person they looked down at my stomach. I am very sensitive about this area of my body and find it very unnerving. I was trying to work out if they were looking to see if I really run or whether I am a good role model. All said after wards they wanted to learn to run after I explained about this forum and everything everybody has achieved but i found it very off putting being surveyed, as my stomach is not the smallest.
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.
