EDIT (Oct 1st): PLEASE SEE THE LATEST POST FOR THIS CHALLENGE:
Hi speedy superstars!
Yes, it's that time again!! Please sign up in the comments below 😊
This challenge is all about pushing yourself. Pick a route you have run before, and try to run it faster - simple as that!!
The challenge will run for 4 weeks, starting from the week commencing Monday, October 1st. Your run can happen at any time during that week, and I will put up a new post each following Monday to collect your data and show the results when we have some. You can repeat runs if you wish, but please post just the one result per week 😊
I will be publishing the weekly results with a graph and leader boards, so it would be great if, before we start, you could let me know the distance of your route, and your baseline time for running that route.
We don't much care for rules in this forum 😊 but here are a few suggestions:
★ Rather than chasing an all-time PB, choose a reasonable starting pace, based upon your current training. On the other hand if you really want to beat that PB, you go for it!! This is your challenge 😊
★ Last time the majority of challengers ran around 5K. Choosing a flatter route and a shorter distance will give you a better chance of running faster. However, as stated earlier, this is also a personal challenge, and you can go as hilly and as long as you jolly well like!!
★ I'm sure it goes without saying, but please make sure you warm up carefully before running fast.
Looking forward to it 😊 As a reminder, here's a link to the results from the Summer challenge:
