100 Day Virtual Challenge

big-mapAs I’ve been a bit rubbish with the whole blogging and running thing for a while now, I’ve decided to try something new… I’m going to attempt a 100 Day Virtual Challenge in which I will run/walk/cycle 1111 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Of course, as it’s a virtual challenge, I won’t actually be out there on the route, but instead will attempt to cover the mileage in my own neighbourhood and by using the exercise bike and treadmill

There is a website that you can do this though, but it costs a bit of money to join, so I decided to just find a route and log my runs on the map.

The route that I decided to use was from Mark Moxon’s website, which has plenty of maps and information about the route and talks about his own experiences of completing it, which will make interesting reading as I go along.

Unfortunately, because I have to go to work every day (not to mention the fact that I am also not very fit right now) I won’t be able to complete the route in the 70 days that he did. However, I will use his daily distances to mark out some milestones/ stage to help keep things on track. The first of which is a whole 11 miles to Penzance.

I’ve made a start already today and am just over half way to Penzance, but I’ll do a proper update once I’ve completed the first stage, hopefully tomorrow. Until then, Happy Running!

    Have a great trip! Metaphorically speaking, of course. I keep starting running again then, you know, not. Maybe I should challenge myself to something and blog about it. That might also solve my blogging problem of too many posts about I Can’t Write A Post Today!
