As we head towards April, I've been thinking about our virtual cycle challenge that starts on Monday.
Will I do it all outdoors? All on an exercise bike (we allow miles done on exercise bikes) or will I do a mix of them both.
As I'm also taking part in our virtual running challenges and aiming for 100 miles in April, I'm also wondering how I'll fit in the time!
It's normal to feel like you've lost your mojo, motivation or simply just don't feel like it. We all go through it at some point so you are not alone.
For me, I found that I knew I wanted to get something done, but the longer I put it off, the more frustrated I got and the more I felt like I had lost my motivation.
Sometimes seeing others out there running or cycling or getting their miles done or anything else puts you off even more!
But don't let any of that get you down.
Yes, we went live with the first Tarmac & Trails Live show on Tuesday 27th.
To kick off things we did a rundown of 10 events that are happening across the UK this coming weekend, 1st & 2nd of December 2018
Starting with Saturday 1st December:
I didn't have a great run yesterday which was my last long run before my marathon on the 30th. I took a bit of a wobble just after 10 miles but plodded on for another 4 1/2 or so.
I just didn't feel right, I was all tense and not breathing how I would like to. It was a real struggle.
One of our most popular blog posts is all about jeffing and is it ok to run / walk / run? I mentioned in that post that I did a half marathon (3 now to date) this way and I thought I would write a little more about it.
So if you are thinking about a half marathon and wonder how you could jeff your way around, here are some tips that could help you smash that half marathon.
Over the past few months, I've heard some negativity about virtual challenges and medals, from "oh it's just a fad", "it's a con", "a waste of time", "medals for nothing"
I've been told the last one directly at a running event we attended. Yes, a running event where every finisher gets a medal?!
But let's have a think about this, are medals from virtual challenges and runs really just 7th placed trophies?
