Wahooo!!!!!!! its been warmer

Its been a better week for my running this week. The suns been out. My legs and feet are feeling good.

Im on to 4 pages of guesses for my 12hr run on June 29th 2013. You still have plenty of time, if you want to make a guess or add another guess.As I mentioned in previous blogs, I have been forced to change venue for this challenge.  I will confirm by the end of May, but its likely that i will be running around a 2 mile ish circuit on seafront/cliff at Gorleston on Sea, Norfolk.
Gorleston cliff

This is the site of a weekly Parkrun at Gorleston cliffs, which is free to enter, its 5km and starts at 9am every Saturday. Make sure you have registered with Parkrun before you go. Even though its free, you need to print out a personilised bar code to get your time.

There are runners of all abilities, ages, sizes. Go on ,give it a look.

Fitness Tip#6    Goal setting.

If you get this right, the world is your oyster. Whatever goals you have, write them down and follow these guidelines:

  • Be Specific - write down exactly, what you want to do
  • Make sure your goal/goals is/are achievable - this is really important or you will set yourself up to fail
  • Make it realistic- as above, if your goal is not realistic, you will be disappointed.
  • Measure and record- write down your achievements in order to keep you on track
  • Set time limits - set short and long term goals.

My runs are getting longer, Im currently upto Three and a half hours. Im getting used to putting calories in as im running. My plan at present is to have an SIS Go gel every hour and a banana or flapjack every 2 hours.
