So, I'm stuck here with my box of tissues, my benylin and paracetamol, oh and my broken toe - great week What is there for a girl to do. Part of me is still basking in the glory of my W6R3 last Monday, but it's fast becoming a distant memory, so I thought I'd keep up my enthusiasm and browse the running sites for tips on the longer runs I'm doing now. Maybe even check out some organised runs or new routes to try. What did I find?
Apart from the parkruns, which look great, and I will definitely sign up for them when I'm recovered, I found something really exciting.
Oh no, could I really do the London to Brighton? "Bike ride?" I hear you ask. No. RUN
100K of running, or mix of running and walking (yes, that was one hundred km). Well, I don't know if I could ever run 100K (on pretty hilly terrain and they expect you to do it in less than 15 hours), but I had been thinking about doing the L2B off road cycle race, which is apparently pretty gruelling, so why not do this. It could be really exciting.
So, do you fancy joining me? What a case study/PR story for NHS if a bunch of C25Kers completed 100K of walking and running a year or so on............
