When I started the 365 day running challenge on the 1st January 2010 I didn't plan on actually doing the London Marathon seriously. Only 24 days into the 365 and I'm already starting to feel strongish and in my head I'm planning on going for the elusive sub 2.45 at London. It seems like every year could be a missed opportunity should I choose not to race London. Not to say a PB couldn't be on the cards at 40+ mind. So the challenge has been a positive one so far. I'm actually really enjoying running every day and also glad to feel like an athlete once again.
The stats so far are 24 runs in 24 days, 114 miles covered and averaging 37.5 mins per day. That's not bad. I've even done one race. I'm not far off completing something I give a lot of my athletes to do if they are considering developing there running quickly or coming back from a layoff……30 runs in 30 days.
