    Sunday 16th June - end of week 24

    Miles completed this week

    Running - 0
    Warm up & Cool down walking - 0
    Commute walking - 0
    Recreational walking - 21.01

    I've come home today after spending just over a week in the Lake District (went up after work on 8th).
    On Monday we walked around Derwentwater, which was 10.45 miles.
    Had a lazy day of nothing on Tuesday.
    By Wednesday afternoon my legs were complaing about being static (I normally walk about 8 miles a day at work), so we dodged the rain to do a very short circuit to see if a horse was still in a local field (he's been there for years) - he was, and 0.79 miles done.
    On Thursday we did the first part of a walk we normally do when up there, then a stretch I've done a few times before, but my fella doesn't think hes' done before, and then did the home leg of another walk we normally do - another 4.01 miles,
    Friday we did some pruning in the garden (we always do some jobs for the owners when we stay there in return for the accomodation), so no mileage clocked up.
    Saturday we walked over to Grasmere and back (from Elterwater) to get our Gingerbread fix, and that added on another 5.76 miles.

    Year to date

    Running - 115.76
    Warm up & Cool down walking - 14.53
    Commute walking - 67.57
    Recreational walking - 144.97

    Total miles for year to date - 342.83
    Target for year to date (based on 1000 miles in year) = 457.53 miles in 167 days.

    Had a bit of blip and didn’t update. But I’ve been active.

    Each week I’ve been marshalling or running. Including my birthday unicorn run and touristing today as our park is under water with the recent rain. I completed our local 8.5 mile fun run too!!!

    My day off work on Friday saw me doing a 4.42 mile circular walk from home in the rain with leaking waterproofs! I had to make contact with several firms and do some jobs around home, but nothing was going well or to plan so I got out to chill for a while, Today was a 4.59 mile circular with my fella at the start of a week off work for both of us - hoping to clock up some recreational walking miles (and possibly even some running) this week :(happy)

    Getting into ...

    Haven't done excersicing for years. Feeling insecure to go to a gym, because of my weight and other body issues I have (results of two pregnancies). I'm a total geek and when I saw the medals of medalmad I knew this could get my motivated. Here begins my journey...

    Sunday 2nd June - end of week 22

    Miles completed this week

    Running - 3.12 miles. Race for Life 5k today. Watch only showed 4.66km when I crossed the finish line, so I ran laps of the grassed area beyond it until it read 5.01 !!
    Warm up & Cool down walking - 0
    Commute walking - 0
    Recreational walking - 23.67 miles.

    Recreational walking was made up of a 5.83 mile local walk with my fella on Bank Holiday Monday, and lots of walks of verious lengths on my day off on Thursday - 1.8 miles to my closest train station (earned my 2km Spiderman pin), 1.4 miles from the station at the other end of my train ride to meet friends (earned my 1km Hulk pin), 8.81 miles from Blackpool to Lytham, 1.89 miles from the end of the walk to the train station to see off some of my friends and then to my daughter's house (earned my 3km Captain Marvel (? I'm not well up on superheroes) pin), 1.18 miles from my daughter's house back to the train station, then a longer (2.76 mile) route home from my local station (to earn my 4km Captain America pin). So a total of 17.83 miles for the day - leaving home just before 6:45am and getting home a touch before 8:55pm.



    Year to date

    Running - 115.76
    Warm up & Cool down walking - 14.53
    Commute walking - 67.57
    Recreational walking - 114.95

    Total miles for year to date - 312.81
    Target for year to date (based on 1000 miles in year) = 419.18 miles in 153 days.

    May Roundup:

    This month has been quite a busy one, general running not going so great but I had the MK Marathon weekend half and the Peaky Runners 10 Mile medal to concentrate on.

    MK half was tough, my first half marathon and the first of three for this year. Completed in 2hrs 50.

    Peaky Runners medal completed 2 weeks after the half, a hilly 10 miles. Don't think I'd recovered fully from the half or maybe it was the rising temperatures but I did struggle.

    Few knee problems, hoping it's just from doing the longer mileage, something to keep an eye on. Plantar Fasciitis seems to be in check and hopefully gone for good now. 👍🏻👍🏻

    86.4 km ran during May. An increase on last month. Aiming for 87k for June.

    Oh, and I turned 40 on the 12th too!

    Started June with the Milton Keynes Colour Obstacle Rush, not much running but climbing and general fun. 5k down, 82 remaining.

    Until next time, happy running people!
