*Please excuse our mank faces.*
This Sunday just past I participated in the Great Manchester 10k Run.
I did the same run last year and trained hard beforehand. My time was 1 hour 11. This year, however, I didn’t train half as much as I should have but managed to complete the course in 1 hour 9! What is even better is that I didn’t feel half as tired as I did last time.
This has really been the motivation that I needed to get back, seriously, into my running. Me and a friend are even signing up to a half marathon next year as something to aim for. Are we mad? We will find out but I am very excited at this stage.
How are all of you doing? Any runs booked too?
If anybody would like to donate to the charity that I ran for…The British Heart Foundation…it isn’t too late to do so. Any donation no matter how big or small will be highly appreciated.
Here’s a bit of motivation booked already… Manchester 10k run in May.
Last year I suprised myself by completeing the race without stopping or walking in 1hr 11mins. In my current state, I could probably pencil roll the thing. Hang on, pencils are associated with skinny, let me rephrase that to sharpie roll.
Why not join up too for a good cause or another one close to where you live? Once you sign up they send you training plans and instructions on setting up a JustGiving page if you wanted to.
My pack came through! It’s safe to say I need to lose a lot more before May to fit into my top!
Again, if you would like to donate to a very worthy cause please visit my JustGiving site.
Or if you would like to participate in the Bupa Manchester Great Run, it is being held on the 18th May and costs £38. Sign up today to secure your place! http://www.greatrun.org/Events/event.aspx?id=4
Yesterday I signed up for the Bupa Great Manchester 10k run. It’s not a marathon but I have to start somewhere. If anybody is in the UK, why not take a look and see if you fancy running? http://www.greatrun.org/Events/event.aspx?id=4
There is a huge list of charities to run for or if you don’t fancy running for one on the list then you can just put whichever other charity you want to.
I am running for Macmillon. A charity that helps provide care for cancer patients and their families. The work they do is astounding and the staff are unbelievable. They have helped my family a lot in the past. If you fancy sponsoring me then please visit my JustGiving page. Any donation would be much appreciated 🙂 https://www.justgiving.com/Sophia-Thom/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=shares-from-eua&utm_content=Sophia-Thom&utm_campaign=eua-share-facebook
Phase one of training starts tomorrow with an 8 mile run/walk to get me into the swing of things. Will keep you posted!
