Now every year I go away in March and October to the other half parents for two weeks, mainly to recharge more than anything.
Since I took up running thought, I have tried my best to find races at the same time so that I could recharge while also doing what I loved, running. Turns out there seems to be no races in March next year, or if there are I just cannot find them.
Ok tell a lie could do the Draycote 10K again but it would only be to beat my time and not for the medal as I have a sneaky suspicion that the medal is the same as the one I already have sadly, and well it wasn’t filling me with the excitement I normally get with a running race.
I did find another race though, the Swan Challenge and boy howdy, yeahhhhh I have ummed and arrhhed about this one.
So the idea is you have 6 hours to complete as many laps of the 3.2miles route. It’s a challenge against yourself. You can do one lap for a 5K, two for 10K, four for a half or 8 for a marathon.
Me I’m going to stupidly aim for 10, or more. Gotta put the or more in there because I will be doing everything in my power to get the more in lol.
It took me a long while to sign up because well I just didn’t think I could do it and well I still don’t think I can but I’m certain with some training (actual training) I’ll be able to do something amazing and well if not, it’s a challenge against myself noone else so it’s going to be exciting to see what I can do.
