Most of my challenges have been very similar for the last few months and I've started to feel a little challenge fatigue. I still want to run a challenge, as I know if I don't, I'll get lazy (also, I love it here and love all you guys!) so this challenge is focusing on one thing. Running.

 

Endless Running

Christ, these video boxes are big

 

I always have running on my challenge, as it's the thing I do the most, but I suck at keeping to a running schedule. I like running, but I struggle to make it a priority, which is why it's the sole priority this time around.

 

Run 3 times a week - Pass

Run more than 3 times a week - Biggus Pass

Run less than 3 times a week - None Shall Pass

 

Planned Running Schedule (depending on what races I have that week)

Tues: Easy Run

Thurs: Speed / Tempo Run

Sat: Optional parkrun or Race Day

Sun: Long Run or Race Day

 

This challenge is also going to be a makeshift battle log, so I can keep logging my strength workouts and any other stuff I get up to.

You know, I knew what this would be just from the title, and yet I still managed to read it in Gollum's 'go away' voice...

 

Here for all shenanigans, running and otherwise :D

Did these coconuts migrate? Or were they carried by a European swallow?

Great to see you Yeti. I think I spent all day yesterday saying "Run Away", much to the confusion of anyone listening.

I'm not starting this challenge officially until the start date, but I'll battle log until then.

Not that I have much to log at the moment. The last few days have just been rehabbing my legs and hip after Sunday's half marathon. My calves have finally loosened up enough  for me to go for a run and I planned on doing so this morning, but my cat decided to be a complete bastard last night. The little shit kept jumping on me in the night and then he decided that it was fun to lie between hubs and I and slowly push me out of bed. I got very little sleep so my 5:40 alarm got ignored this morning.

 

At least it's a nice day today so I can go for a run at lunchtime instead. As I'm only planning on doing an easy run, I've written down Eric's WoW from the OCR group and I'm going to try and fit one or two rounds in at the half way point.

Glutton for punishment :) I like this idea but at 5:30am when I'm out running it always seems like a terrible idea and I skip it.

Yours too? Mine reminded me that we didn't feel him right before bed by continuously jumping on the bed, standing one me or just walking across me, then jumping off. Repeatedly. Over and over again. At 3am. No meowing but he's a fat bugger so walking on you hurts when you're not expecting it
