Today is the start of September which means its officially the start of my "The Fat Girls Guide to Running" challenge with Too fat to Run. If you didn't see my introduction post I have committed the next six months to following challenges that are set in the clubhouse.
This weeks challenge is the reboot. With only 4 working days left this week all we need to do is get out the front door for three of those days.
Challenge one is walk, jog or run for 10 minutes, then retrace your foot steps back however you wish to do it. Challenge two is the same but for 12 minutes before turning back, and the third is for 15 minutes. This is do-able. There is no emphasis on distance or speed, just to get out and do something.
Will you be joining in with me?
My current level...
Yesterday I was due to be taking part in the Warrington Colour run. 3k full of colour and atmosphere whilst running with a friend. I was slowly training using the C25K app. Two weeks holiday put a stop to the training, and then yesterday J ended up in A&E with possible appendicitis (Thankfully a false alarm!). This meant I missed the race. Sponsorship money had already been given so I still had to do the run. A new friend offered to do the run with me as she is also on a fitness mission, and we did it. In the rain.
I am not sure how we are still smiling as the last few feet was up hill and we were wet from the rain. Running with a friend really does help as we found as we ran/walked it we were pushing to different obstacles. Once we stopped talking as much I managed to get my breathing under control and into a pattern and managed to run further without stopping then I thought we would. We managed to do two laps of the local lake which is around two miles in 24 minutes. That's not bad going if you ask me for a beginner run-walker.
What level are you on the clubhouse scale? Im red as a run-walker, and in the middle of the scale which sounds good to me, I am hoping by Christmas I will be pink on the scale.
