I can’t tell you why, I can only assume I wasn’t of sound mind, but when my friend asked me if I fancied joining in lockdown running challenge over the next month-ish, I said ‘OK!’.
I think I got a little bit overexcited. And hysterical about lockdown.
My running is dreadful. I’d only just managed to get back to the gym when they shut again. But, for some reason, I am going to attempt to run 100km over lockdown.
My other half is going to try it too. You’ll be able to spot us a mile off, we’ll be the two hobbling around with lots of blisters. (Well, I will be. He’ll probably be the one that looks all sporty and athletic dragging me behind him).
The only thing that could make this bearable, I thought, was if I had some sort of printable to fill in. So, I’ve made one. It’s not perfect but it’ll do – and if I get through this, I’ll make a blooming beautiful certificate for myself to celebrate!
On the off-chance that any of you are attempting the same challenge, I thought I’d share it here. This is what it looks like.
If you’re doing this lockdown running challenge, or similar PLEASE get in contact and let me know how it’s going. I’d love to hear from others.
Also, if anyone has any tips on how to beat running boredom, I am all ears.
Normal service will be resumed soon. I am not at all in my comfort zone here, and I wish I’d signed up to a book challenge instead. Books. They’re so nice, and indoorsy, and comforting and not at all horrible and cold and blister inducing. Thank goodness for my audible subscription, which is about the only thing going to get me through this all.
