If you've donated - have a huge hug from me! (Feel free to collect in person)
If you're just here to enjoy the photos of pain...... I get it, but consider donating by clicking the link on the right!
If you fancy seeing even more pain you can go back through old posts to see my 2007 ergo marathon for Orchid.......
So what am I doing? I'm aiming to beat a self-imposed target of running 75km during the month of September. That's an average of 5km every other day. It's pretty easy for some - but I'm unfit, overweight and have what we shall call 'logistical issues' to organise my running around, so it's achievable, but on the (outside) edge of my current comfort zone. That fits OutRun's intention of pushing your boundaries.
All logged distances will be rounded down to the nearest 0.5km - so I'll ignore the odd .02km type bits that appear on my running watch.
All runs will be logged here with either phone screenshot or Garmin screenshot. I will post regular selfies - you have been warned........
The first run was on 1st Sept. It was very very slow & not very pretty at all - witness the photo. That one on 1min run:1min walk ('run' is generous....). I sweated. A lot.
The second run was earlier today & I tried 2min jog : 1 min walk.... big mistake. Huge. I am even less fit than I feared.... heigh ho..... the only way is up (or level.... I think level may be better....)
So at least that's 10km in the bag! Yey - go me! I may get adventurous & try running elsewhere - in which case more pretty photos may happen..... tune in for the next exciting adventures.....
