SpecialEffect

3 Jul

I’ve not posted for a while, so what better time to post an update than now after setting up a just giving page to raise sponsorship for SpecialEffect! An amazing charity that helps disabled people play video games, a thing the rest of us take for granted.

I decided that I wanted to take part in  Marathon before I’m 50 and as I have just turned 49 thought it was time to get my backside in gear. To get Me ready for that I am doing a few races this year:

  1. Gateshead 10K ✔
  2. Durham City 10K
  3. Middlesbrough 10K
  4. Redcar Half Marathon

Then next year I will take part in a full marathon, London if accepted and if not then I will look for another one around March/April 2018.

Then I thought that I would go one step further and so on Saturday 19th May 2018 I am taking part in Tough Mudder along with Reece, 10-12 miles of some tough obstacles, take a look at the video here https://toughmudder.co.uk/

Lost a few pound!

5 Apr

Well quarter of a way through the year and I’ve finally managed to lose a stone, another 5 pounds and I’m below 12 stone 😀

On top of that, I’m exercising and stretching almost every day and feeling so much better for it. As for my running, it seems that is going pretty good too. Got my 5k time down to 24 minutes and running 10k in around 51 minutes.

I’ve upped my long run on a Sunday (or Monday if I’m been lazy) to 8 miles, no great shakes for most people but it is for me.

Now let’s see how well I am actually doing as I have 3 races over the coming weeks!

09-04-2017 – Marina 5 Mile

14-04-2017 – Mermaid 10K

01-05-2017 – Tees Barrage 10K

Wish me luck 😳
