What a great time of year to run! But time to think about a few more layers maybe, and most definitely to make sure we can be seen on these darker days.
I picked up some light-up arm bands from Aldi for next to nothing a couple of winters ago, they are still going strong! Put one on your wrist, and one on your ankle to help motorists pick up the movements that indicate there’s a runner around. HiViz are essentials, Neon reflectors of any kind are also great.......why not embrace the neon! Head torches or chest torches (my preference) are great but not everyone will find the need for these.
So, welcome all to November week 1 of “What is your week?” Whats’s the idea of "What is your Week?”.
Well every week I am going to put up a post, so you can add in a little post underneath, to say what week you are planning to do this week.
Sample post (feel free to put as much or as little as you like):
“Hi, I'm Millsie-J and this week, I am doing the milestone Week 6 runs. Feeling a little nervous, any tips folks? “
We are growing so much at the moment and we wanted to have a little fun post ,so we can see who is on what week of the programme, and hopefully it will help everyone to feel more included on the forum.
Please remember it doesn't matter if you stay on the same week for a while, that is fine; it is a journey and it really doesn't matter how long it takes, it will be so worth it when you get to the final run.
If you have just graduated, this will also be a great place to keep you motivated, there is always the Quest on the Bridge to 10k forum as well, for Graduates.
Come on you lurkers, we would love to hear from you too!
Happy running everyone🏃🏽♀️🏃🏻🌞
