A mile a day in May

I'm going to try and run (at least) a mile a day in May!

I've done C25K previously and can just about still run 5k (on a very good day with the wind behind me). I fancy a new challenge and I think this will be manageable with my hectic life!

Anyone want to join me? smile

I'm not sure that's going to be quite the right approach for me, but do you mind if I camp out on this thread? I've been skipping too many runs (partly because of the hols) and really want to get back into the swing of it. Perhaps not daily, but at least 4x a week for me.

And yes, I did run today.

Yes of course smile

I did my run yesterday and will run later on. Do you have regular running days?

DevilsAdvocaat Tue 02-May-17 20:14:07

Did my run today!

I'm doing this challenge!

Did mk superhero run yesterday.....1.5 miles
Treadmill run today....1.5 miles

Determined to complete this run streak!

Well done op. Do you think you'll last the full month?

Not regular days at the moment.

But I ran on Monday, and did a long walk yesterday, so covering the ground

DevilsAdvocaat Wed 03-May-17 07:07:54

I think I can do it!
The only day I'm worried about is Friday as the call to the pub after work is so strong!

Can't face running first thing tho. I just get too dizzy!

AuntieStella Wed 03-May-17 08:11:06

Can you build a brisk walk somewhere into Friday? Call it your weekly rest day, but cover the a different pace?

DevilsAdvocaat Wed 03-May-17 20:36:17

I'm working from home this Fri afternoon so can deffo squeeze in a run!
Will plan each Friday so I don't wriggle out of it grin

Day 3 done!

It is done!

A lot of primary schools do a mile day (walking or running) after assembly or after lunch. That's kids between 4 and 11 yo.

DevilsAdvocaat Thu 04-May-17 23:35:15

Are you trying to make a point?! grin
My challenge is suitable for children!

I'm enjoying the challenge.

Just done almost 2 miles on my treadmill

DevilsAdvocaat Fri 05-May-17 07:15:02

She was advertising an exercise group!

MumIsRunningAMarathon Fri 05-May-17 10:24:34

Ah I see! A chancer!

Well, I'm sticking to this so far

Off on a bike ride today with the other half but will still run later

Challenging myself to work my way through my massive pile of sportswear, wearing everything at least once and binning the old stuff

1st of June and I'll be buying new workout gear I hope!grin

DevilsAdvocaat Fri 05-May-17 15:43:50

I need some new workout gear!
And trainers. They're so old.

DevilsAdvocaat Fri 05-May-17 16:41:07

Bring me the alcohol and pizza.

Planning to go to gym tomo morning.

DevilsAdvocaat Sat 06-May-17 21:17:50
