Nearly a year ago I set myself the challenge of doing 1000km in a year, in my build up to hitting 50.
Today I competed my challenge with 15 days spare. I ordered myself my own bling to commemorate it,. And it just happened that I was under the minimum order of £3.50 so I got myself a mini trophy as well,. I've never had one of those before.
This year I got the Bronze medal after my Birthday I will start on next years and that one will be a silver one, then on to Gold.
I use Garmin connect which is free and even if you don't use a Garmin watch you could manually add in runs and it has just quietly ticked off all my runs, walks and swims in the last year.
Some weeks it has been good for getting me out the door just for a walk even if I hadent the energy for running, especially when the hay fever was bad and it equates to approx 20km every week.
There are so many different challenges you can set your self with this running lark I just love it.
Wishing you all a happy healthy running week
