or is that up?
Either way, we are 3 months through the year - 25% in percentage terms. But what about you JCR? Where exactly are you in this non-Spring like holiday? I have to run 2018kms in 2018 to hopefully raise £2018 for Alzheimer’s Research.
In a nutshell - they year is 25% the way through, I have run 547km against my straight-line target of 504.5km. And my fundraising is at 35% of the £2018 target.
I’ve learned that:-
the mind can push the body
ju-ju- ’s tip of wearing bright red lipstick (now known in my house as runner’s ruby) is an absolute corker and I recommend it to you all
my ideal pattern for running now is 3 days running and one day of rest (this is NOT a recommendation btw, for any one going through the plan)
I actually loved the Beast from the East and found ‘snow running’ to be delightful
C25K friends are the best friends in all of this, through your generosity, support and encouragement
when something twinges, stop running and do something about it i.e. follow the advice on here!
cross-training is helpful, if painful (thanks Rignold)
I couldn’t have even considered this is it wasn’t for a lady called Laura, who decided to create a plan that over 45,000 of us on here have followed
An unsung hero is a big help - Mr JCR, who nags when he has to, sympathises when he needn’t, and provides me with treats when I meet a new milestone (so far that’s a gin making workshop, a sports massage, and a mid-year gait analysis)
Hopefully, Spring will arrive soon and I can start running with fewer layers, then resemble a runner, rather than the Michelin man.
Happy running everyone.
Oh and thanks to jeanie who very generously sponsored me today too.
Jeanie - I thanked you here too
