I've smashed the ton mark :)

I've smashed the ton mark :)

Hi everyone. After 14 weeks with a time of 23 hrs and after 35 runs. I have finally totally and utterly smashed the 100 mile mark. I've run nearly 4 marathon lengths and I feel totally and utterly fantastic. If on the 5th of Jan you would have said I would do this in 14 weeks I would have laughed at you but as the picture shows I have done it whoop whoop. Bring on the next 100 now :) to all you new runners if I can do it you can too. Good luck and happy running :) J

  • Wowsers! That's brilliant Jase well done. I bet the next 100 comes round even quicker x :-)

  • They probably will and the new trainers at 500 miles :)

  • Wowser!!!! very impressive well done and thanks for posting - you are an inspiration :) x

  • Cheers Lou. I see your into week 5 now. There is some good stuff in this week. It also becomes mind over matter from now on too. You can do it keep posting 15 to go and they soon fly past :) J

  • It's remarkable how the miles start to build up very quickly. At this rate you'll be pushing 400 miles by the end of the year and do you know what that means? It means you'll have worn out your current pair of running shoes! (I'm not kidding).

    Bet you never thought you'd do that!

  • Cheers Rob. I know it does soon clock up. I've already got my eyes on the asics kayano 21's so there is my inspiration :) J

  • Nice one Jase...that's an amazing achievement, so what is the next goal?...keep pushing and enjoy it ;)

  • Yes Ju push on and up. I'm looking at fell running as well as we have lots of moors up here. Might be a bit easier on the legs and help build stamina up too. Plus it will bring back old memories too lol. The tiger is urban and going rural too. Thanks for all your inspiration and love your vid blogs too. :) what's your move after the marathon ?:) J

  • That's brilliant! Amazing how they add up!! 14 weeks!! Not long to change your life is it!!

  • Loving it TL I have even inspired my mates wife so I am running c25k with her from W1R1 then dropping her off at home and continuing on my run its great :) J

  • That's great! So far I've only managed to convert one of my friends but her knees hurt and she gave up. I think everyone is sick of me yapping about it but I don't care!!! I love it!!!!

  • Bravo, this is just the inspiration I need today. I've signed up for the Marathon Challenge on Runkeeper - to run or walk 26.2 miles between tomorrow and the end of April. Thank you so much for posting the full stats, it's really helpful.

  • That's excellent GM I've signed up to run as many kms as possible in April on Strava :) J

  • I use Strava on my iPhone and it's excellent for seeing how well you perform and it's totally free app too :) J

  • Fab! Utterly amazing to a newbie runner. At the moment I can't even comprehend doing 5k. Well done you such an achievement. Keep up your great running :-)

  • Cheers Julia. It's been a hard road thou. Lots of mind over matter and pain and sweat but you can do it too. The stage your at is purely mind set. You have done the hardest W5R3 so come on girl we are behind you all the way :) J
