I signed up for a thing!!

No, I didn’t sign up for a half marathon.

No, not even a 10k.

Not a running thing at all as it happens! Well not exclusively running, although running will play a part.

I have signed up to walk (run dance etc) 100 miles.

Not in one go…but between the first and the end of June. It works out at an average of 3.3 miles per day. Which is doable, but challenging. It will be easy to cover that sort of distance on dancing days and dancing weekends, however my work days involve a lot of sitting. So, I am going to have to find ways of squishing extra walking around into my workday!

I signed up for this on Race at Your Pace, which is slightly annoyingly named, because it is not in any way a race. But anyway, they have challenges to walk (crawl, climb) or cycle between 25 and 200 miles in a month….

If you manage this, they send you a medal πŸ˜€ it isn’t really for anything other than a challenge and to give me an incentive to get up and go every day.

NB: for some reason I thought this was to be done before the 25th June…I don’t think this is true now I look back on the website. Bonus!! This means I am ahead of schedule! So far I am up to 19 miles and I have not finished today yet πŸ™‚

    • I like the medal too πŸ™‚ and it just says 100 Miles Which looks much more impressive if you don’t know it took a whole month!!

      I have a habit of just doing these things on the spur of the moment… it has a reasonably high success rate 😁

  1. Walking is amazing and is my exercise of choice. I stopped getting public transport to work maybe two years ago (maybe a bit more) and walk to and from work now.

    I used to run a fair bit but kept damaging myself so took it as a sign that my body is getting too old for that short of thing πŸ˜‚
