Welcome to the first week of the SPRING FREE SPEED CHALLENGE!!!
There's still plenty of time to join - comment below!
This Challenge will run for FIVE WEEKS, from Monday April 6th to Sunday May 10th.
Here's what you do:
★ PICK YOUR DISTANCE: 1 MILE, 1 KM, OR LESS - or 20 jumping jacks if you can't go outside to exercise.
NB - only ONE Speed Challenge per person, please!!! 😘
★ WARM UP before you start!
I'll post a couple of videos at the bottom. Most of the movements in them can be done indoors so you can save your outside time for running. After the dynamic movements, finish with a warm-up jog for a km or so.
★ RUN your chosen distance, or jump, AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!
You do not need to run every week, just do whatever you can fit in.
★ POST THE TIME IT TOOK YOU TO RUN YOUR CHOSEN DISTANCE, OR JUMP (in min:sec) HERE ON THIS POST IN THE COMMENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will POST WEEKLY (Tuesday) updates, and put all the results into my spreadsheet (calculating the changes in your running/jumping times from Week 1 in seconds) which you can view here:
Stay safe, good luck, and have fun!!!!
