3000 KM Challenge (3KC) is underway!

Day 2 – Total Kilometers Run 17.17 – Weight 10st 3lb

I’m just under a kilometer ahead of targeted distance per day. In order to keep on track and hit my 3000K challenge by December 31st 2015 I will need to run 8.22 km every day for 365 days. Naturally my body will need a rest so there will be plenty of days when i need to be around 27 km ahead so I can take 3 days rest. The marathon events and smaller half events will help me build km to allow for rest days – but of course I’ll need extra rest after longer endurance races.

After 4 weeks of back pain, recovering from a damaged piriformus it was hard going. Running for the first time at a decent pace was like running as a beginner again. Legs calling out for a rest, chest tightening and simply not feeling it after a frustrating Christmas break. I have just under 2.5 months to prepare for the Barcelona Marathon and stop feeling like a newbie running.

Next Race – London Winter Run February 1st.

Thanks to those who have supported me so far. I’m still at 40% of target and we have 364 days remaining to hit the £10,000 charity target. Remember I’m raising running for British Heart Foundation, VICTA and Cancer Research.
