This event was held on 6th November and was about raising awareness and money for the Royal British Legion.mit was a 5 k distance and there was such a variety of people taking part - adults and children whose aim was to complete it whether walking or running.
So, my aim, as usual, was to complete it. I actually ran the entire distance. It's the first time for a long time that I have run a 5k distance in its entirety. I as really pleased with myself.
Yep, that's what this post is all about. 7 left to go and it absolutely feels like the biggest thing to try and achieve before February at the moment. I know it's not but that's what it feels like.
Since the Great South Run I have lost a lot of motivation to run. I'm also aware that my general mood is also dipping, so I am doing things to help me keep my head above water. Exercise, I know, should be one of them, but even doing other things like crochet and reading is helping.
My husband had an idea: as our local parkrun is running on Christmas Day, he suggested I make that my 40th event. I think that is quite a brilliant idea, so I need to work backwards and plan in when I need to fill the gaps between now and then. It would be great to finish this challenge before the year and gives me a target to aim to. Which will help in keeping me focused.
So far, I have the following events booked: Poppy Run (tomorrow), Decathlon 5km (2 weeks time), Boscombe 10k (3 weeks time). And then of course Christmas Day parkrun as my final event. That's 4. Three events then left to do. It's apparently 8 weeks until Christmas........
Can I hit my fundraising target by then too? I have less than £100 to raise before hitting it. I'd love to reach that.
