I’m currently stuck at home with a nasty cold and yet another rewatch of Gilmore Girls, so I thought it would be a good time to catch up on blogging and write an update on the #run1000miles challenge.
I’ve run roughly 400 miles since my last post, which means I’m a little behind.
I had a few good weeks in the spring (including a 40-mile week back in May), but then anxiety and boredom took over. You can only run so many miles on a straight path along the A46 before losing all motivation!
Thankfully, it’s not all bad and there were a few memorable runs over the summer. I hit 300 miles for the year on a scenic run up Kinder Scout, we went on a 16-mile sightseeing run around London (still my longest run to date) and – my favourite – we ran around Bamford Edge at sunset on solstice day.
My motivation seems to have returned with the cooler temps and I’m hitting my weekly target. I’m hoping to catch up on my mileage sometime in the next month. I also have a race (my first trail half-marathon) to look forward in October.
646 down, 354 to go!
