    Grrr

    Looks like I’m suffering from a groin injury so having to rest this week. Looking less likely I’ll meet this month’s 75 mile target. Hopefully, will manage 50 miles though.

    Wonder if Medal Mad will let me off this month if I manage to make up the missing miles by the end of the year! 😉

    Currently on 38.3 miles for this month.

    Have completed Parkrun #45. Only 5 to go before I reach that magic 50!

    Chorley 10k last Sunday which was a pleasant route and have just done a 5 mile run around the park.

    Suffering from a few aches and pains recently so pace not brilliant but hey, ho, I’m getting out there!

    No runs midweek, assignment needed finishing for course I’m doing.

    However, 5 miles on Friday night, Parkrun with my sister on Saturday morning and just finished a bank holiday 8 miles so I’m happy with that! 👍

    Well, approaching the end of the month and my target of 75 miles a month has been achieved! In fact, it’s officially 91.4 and I’ve ended the month by completing the Blackpool Half Marathon! Couple of days rest now I think! ‏ — feeling great

    Not a bad weekend.

    7 miles on Saturday morning including joining in Parkrun.

    10 miles around my local park on Sunday.

    27 miles completed this week!

    50.8 miles completed so far this month! April’s been a good month so far!

    Despite last Friday’s tough run, things have got better this week.

    First, got my fastest 10k time in a long time doing the Fleetwood 10k. A flat route but happy with my 1 hour, 30 seconds. On Tuesday, did a tough, hilly 5 miles but just completed the same route tonight and was quicker!

    AND just signed up for another half marathon! 👍

    33.1 miles completed so far this month! Going well! ‏ — feeling great

    10k run around local park last night and although, great location, great weather and good company, I really struggled. Legs sore, breathing not good and quite tired.

    Some days are just like that I guess... ‏ — feeling sad

    Another month, another 75 miles to complete!

    Started the month off well and have gained the Fool’s Day Run medal and completed the 15k in one run! And with the clocks going forward, my local park was open later so completed in there.

    That’s just over 9 miles towards my 75 on the very first day! ‏ — feeling great

    Parkrun this morning with a mile run before the run and one after bringing my monthly total to 83 miles! That’s above the 75 miles target for the month!

    This year so far, I have completed exactly 250 miles so on track to complete 1000 miles by the end of the year!

    Gave my new Brooks Adrenaline running shoes their first outing this morning and I love them! Managed to do the Parkrun in the best time I’ve done in years! 30 minutes and 18 seconds! Not an official PB but definitely a PB for runs I’ve done in my forties! At 47, I’m happy with that! It was also my 40th Parkrun so just another 10 until that milestone t-shirt!

    Overall, another successful month! All targets to date have been met! 👍

    Yay! Just met my target for the month! I’m up to 78 miles and still a few days to spare!

    Have completed 245 miles this year so another 5 miles this month and reaching 1000 miles for the year is on track!

    Will definitely be doing Parkrun this weekend so might well do it!

    Happy Days!

    Pleased with this week. Last time I did a half marathon, I gave myself a couple of weeks rest then kinda got out of running regularly. This time, however, my focus is on completing mileage, the organised runs are a bonus.

    So Wigan half completed last Sunday, ran a 10k mid week, 7 miles yesterday morning (including Parkrun) and today, did 10 miles in and around the local park which included two laps of the Parkrun route!

    My monthly mileage so far is 71.5 miles so going to complete my target and will probably exceed. Every month this year, I’ve actually completed over 80 miles which makes my stretch target of 1000 miles this year on track!

    I don’t think I’ve ran this much regularly ever! So much so, I’m having to retire my current running shoes and have treated myself to some Brook’s Adrenaline. Will break them in at Parkrun next weekend! ‏ — feeling great

    Been a busy week outside the running world but managed a 6 mile run on Thursday evening.

    Did my local Parkrun with my sister yesterday and the puddles were shin deep. Extremely wet but enjoyed it.

    Today was the Wigan Half Marathon! Completed in 2 hours, 20 minutes, knocking over 7 minutes off the time I did it in two years ago so happy with that!

    Bit behind on this month’s target compared to previous months but still doable before end of March I should think! ‏ — feeling great

    Well, after an eventful week of life getting in the way, there weren’t any midweek runs.

    However, managed 7 miles on Saturday morning including a Parkrun.

    Was unable to do Sunday’s long run due to unforeseen circumstances but will hopefully fit in a run tomorrow. Got the Wigan half marathon on Sunday!

    First half marathon of the year training run! Not ran that distance for a couple of years!

    Hilly!
    Very wet!
    Sore Knees!
    Included a mile long up hill!
    No medal!

    Felt great (once I’d stopped)! Last half mile very tough!

    17 miles completed so far this month towards my 75 Mile challenge AND it’s only the 3rd!

  • First Parkrun of the month and 4 miles complete for this month’s challenge! Would have been 5 miles but Parkrun giving away free eggs today so couldn’t run home while holding my box of eggs! ‏ — feeling happy

    An enjoyable 10k at Stanley Park in Blackpool this morning. Quite a fast first 5k but then slowed for the second half.

    Best thing about entering a Fylde Coast Runner’s event is that at the end, not only do you get a fab medal and much needed water, but also a Cadbury’s Freddo Frog chocolate bar! Love it every time!

    Woohoo!

    5 Mile morning run.

    Target met for this month!

    I’m hoping to complete 1000 miles this year though so will need another ten miles this month to stay on track for that. Luckily, I’ve entered a 10k tomorrow! 👍 ‏ — feeling great

    Good run last night. Changed my route slightly and thought I’d cover 6 miles. It actually covered just over 7 miles so was pleased with that! ‏ — feeling happy
