Hi there fast and furious folk!

The Spring Free Speed Challenge is now officially finished.

If you have a result from last week you haven't given me yet please post it in the comments 😊😊😊

I need to have a think about how to present the graph, which is a bit crazy this time πŸ˜‚ but I will put up a conclusion post soon.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Challenge - you were amazing!!!!

Difference is, Dexy5, that you had a valid reason not to be running fast - at all even! I had no such reason! πŸ₯Ί

The time wasn’t right for you cheekychipmunks. Too much other stuff going on.... I’m glad to see you can now drive to the common with Floss again.

I’m doing a baby steps run/walk today. Eek 😬

Yep, tomorrow I’ll be doing just that! It should be fun, and the bluebells are out so I hope to get some frolicking photos of her. πŸ’™πŸΎ

Please report back with how your walk/run inaugural session goes. Bet you can’t wait! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Thanks - no week 5 result from me - I was never in the right place at the right time last week.

Thanks for organising! My time last week was 8:15 so I’ve only got slower over the challenge πŸ˜‚

Not really, that was your best time other than your benchmark run! xxx

Thank you roseabi. It has been a lot of fun and I’ve learnt a lot about my self.

I still plan to run a fast 1 k every now and again. My challenge is to see if I can dip below 3.30. I’m also going to work on 400 and 200 metre running too.

I need to find a local running track.

There's one at Withdean Stadium, closed at the moment though, I'd think. I know someone who has run there with his club 😊

Thanks Abi, I enjoyed 4 out of 5 of my runs, which isn't a bad percentage in these hard times!

Looking forward to your next idea of fun :-)
