January Challenge Complete βœ”οΈ & Over 700 Runners at our Parkrun Celebrations πŸŽ‚

January is over and I'm happy to report that I completed my personal challenge to myself to "Run 50 Miles in January" πŸ˜ŠπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ In fact, I actually ran 66.58 Miles! πŸ˜› I honestly thought I would struggle to complete this one due to work commitments, but I managed to do most of my long runs at the weekend 😊

And today I did my 4th Parkrun at my local park πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ It was an extra special one today as it was the 7th Year Birthday of Hillsborough Parkrun Sheffield πŸŽ‚ Over 700+ runners, plus children, babies and dogs! It's quite a sight when everyone sets off! The front runners have pretty much done a lap before the back runners even cross the Start line πŸ˜‚ I absolutely LOVE the solitude of running on my own, but I have really enjoyed the madness and mayhem of the 4 Parkruns I've done so far ❀️

So, what's my challenge for February? It was going to be 60 Miles, but I seem to have done that already!? πŸ€” Mmmmn?

And there I was only last year worrying about Week 5 and running for 20 Minutes! πŸ˜‚

Happy running everyone! πŸƒπŸΏπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸ˜Š

Woowzers! 93 miles! That's super human πŸ€ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Well done! Good to hear you're back on your feet again! Good luck with the training! xxx

Not really..it has to be at least 30 minutes or at least 5K every day...πŸ˜‰

Congratulations! What a great feeling to hit your target!

I think I need to set some. I've 610k for the year. But I think I need to work on monthly targets too.

Happy running!

Thank you RunningMigster 😎

Your 610k is a great achievement! If my maths serves me right, that's about 5k three times a week! πŸ€”

Hope your 10k plan is coming together? X

Fingers crossed! My target should be very achievable. But as this will be my first full year of running (cant believe I only started in October), I'm going easy on myself 🀣

I’m doing ok at the moment 🀞🏼I’m back to where I was in the plan before IC, so 8 runs to go before graduation (hopefully). Not that I’m counting or anything. That Parkrun sounds interesting - and 700+ runners, that’s immense!

Good to hear you're back on your feet again! Enjoy you last 8 runs πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

I'd love to see an aerial view of the park when there are that many runners! They form a ring all the way around the park!

πŸ˜‚ hahaha! I think I'd like to get another 60 Miles in?? Although there are less days in February! And I'd like to do a 10 Mile run!!!! If I can do that, then I might consider doing a Half Marathon!!!!!!
