Happy New Year everyone!
So, 2017 is done and what a year it’s been! Strava tells me that I ran 911 miles in 2017 but when you add in all the treadmill training I was doing at the start of the year I’ve run the following:
- 126 runs
- 1191.46 miles
- 212.75 hours of running
- My average run is about 9.5 miles and 1hour 40 mins
Some of the highlights:
- Birmingham Marathon dressed as a raccoon
- Farnham to Bournemouth with some mates (45 miles)
- Endure 24 (80 Miles)
- My 100-mile run in November
Before 2017 I’d only run further than a marathon in one go once so this was a big year for me. I still don’t look like an athlete and I’ve literally lost 2 lbs of weight all year but hey I’m having fun!
So… what’s next?!?
In a few days we’ll be setting off on the Towpath Challenge, running from London to Birmingham in 5 days. This is the equivalent of 5 marathons in 5 days and we arrive just in time for the launch of the National Running Show. There are some super cool people doing the run with me and I am so excited about it! My knee is still a little sore from the 100 miles I did in November I had to take a few weeks of training in December but I’m hoping my legs will remember how to run that far and I won’t hold everyone back!
See you all at the National Running Show on 20 & 21 January! If I’m hobbling around the place because my legs are broken then please give me some sympathy!
