New school year resolution…Must Try Harder!!
My Running to 40 challenge becomes a reality this month, my race number has arrived and I really need to focus…not sure where to begin!!
Issues I am struggling with
a) Distance – I have improved my time on my 5k run, I’ve knocked 4 minutes off my first Parkrun time in 2 weeks, which I am pleased with, but I am finding it so tricky to run any further! When I am out on my I am so ready to get home…I think I need to push myself more, run 3k away from home and then I’ve got to run back?? Any advice??
b) Decision making – what to focus on? Triathlon? Duathlon? Mud runs? Obstacle races?…..
c) Fundraising – how to improve my campaign!! The Joshua Tree is such a fabulous charity and I want to raise awareness of them as well as raise money for them.
d) Training plan – I think I know this answer to this already but all advice greatly received, focus on 10k first then move up to Half plan? Cross train, particularly if Tri/Du are focus? Upper body strength improvement tips?
e) Quality time – spend more time doing and less discussing on social networks!! I feel I talk a good job at the moment and even my Teen, whose phone is never more than an inch away from her hand, thinks I’m being, and I quote, “Anti-Sociable”…I must be bad!!
The last few weeks have been tough but along with my son, who asked if he could make a new school year resolution, I feel I must now raise my game, pull my socks up and get a grip!! My next blog will be full of positive…
