Welcome to Week 5
(6 July -16 August)
Week 5. Confession time. I have just come home and had a really party weekend. Running moderates my life in so many ways. I can't wait to get back to it, my old habits are coming up again. I have my physio appointment on Wednesday and hopefully I can run again soon. I know I am weak but I need my running so much. I don't know what it is about going out for a run but it just makes make want to be healthy. It is ridiculous that without it my good habits go out the window. I know I am sharing a lot but I honestly do not think I am the only, running is so good in so many ways. Happy running to everyone.
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.
