5km a day in September
Day 3 done, though am noticing the stiffnes a little. I don't 'do' stretching, might need to start I guess....
if you want to make this challenge a little longer (i.e.number of consecutive days), then Likeys have set up this 365 day challenge - 2 miles or 20mins minimum every day for a year. details here - http://likeys3very6leedin5tepchallenge.wordpress.com/ and on the FB page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Likeys-3very-6leedin-5tep-Challenge/407910439269982
Littlefatwelshman who runs Likeys styarted it for himself to get some fitness back but it seems to have blossomed a bit.
and we're likley to start it when we get back from hols to try to get some discipline back into our training which has been hit and miss this year
Good work Gladys
It might be the first (& only) time you hear me say this but good idea Gladys!I'm going to adapt slightly having only found this thread this morning (& having not done anything over the weekend).30 runs (of 5k minimum) in 30 days of Sept for me, this will ensure that importantly if I need a day off I'll get one and a few double run day sessions will do me good. No limits on HR though as some intervals will be part of this. Will commence at lunchtime today.
There's also 5k a day for 50 days
I've done 5k a day for the first 3 days of september so might continue
FB - I was thinking about the Likey thing - I might just sign up
my signature to the 365 thing will depend on how my PF whinjury feels after this weekend's tri and what it's like when we get back from France.
My opinion (wanted or not) after a PF injury this could probably be the worst thing you could anticipate doing FB
or alternatively if I manage the PF correctly (am trying some taping techniques) then it maybe a good way of overcoming the issue. shit or bust approach!!
Dont come running to me when your leg drops off
I've just entered the Likey challenge
My legs haven't dropped off yet
ahem - wasnt I told that i must take a rest day EVERY week if i needed it or not, not even a few laps of the pool - surely running even 1 mile puts more stress your body than swimming 400m once a week
i think FB was the main advocate of the rest day
He forgets ...its his age
Thats cos you dont take days off
but Melds - you take days off
* now im running away and hoping your not at the Vit next week *
One of these things might be *just* what a fat old cripple needs...
Agreed Jj, but I don't think Meldy is doing it?!
