I challenge myself to go out and run at least 6 miles a week. I'm pretty motivated when training for half marathons (up to now I've always entered autumn ones) but I need to get out and get some runs in the rest of the time. Volunteering at parkrun is not an excuse to miss a run that weekend!!!

Nb On the occasion of snow, if this winter is anything like the last, then allowances can be made - as I live at the top of a hill I'm not risking the rest of this challenge by trying to run downhill on ice and snow ?

    This has been one of those weeks that is the reason behind this challenge. Being in a running club and having entered 4 half marathons means I get a lot of mileage in but it would have been very easy to do no running this week.

    The only evening I could run was at training on Weds. Great session, I ached the next day, but as it was the first session to ease our 0 to 5k graduates into it and was mainly relays so mileage was 1.12 miles.

    No time for any long runs this weekend and volunteering at parkrun, if this was last year I'd have just taken the rest. But instead I got up early Friday morning and did 3.24 miles, forgot how nice and early morning weekday run is!. Then managed to squeeze in 2.42 miles on Sunday.

    Total distance 6.78 miles

    Recovery from last weekend's half marathon and a week off work (so no routine) meant no running during the week. But a spot of parkrun tourism (3.23) and a social run with Ross Runners (5.83) gave me some mileage.
    Total distance 9.06 miles

    Didn't get out too much this week with other stuff going on. Club training - we're now back at our summer location of the cricket club - 2.78 miles. Sunday was a long run - ran down to my lift (a mile but haven't counted that as forgot to press stop and it included some of the car journey - fastest couple of miles ever!), then Ross Runners met at a friend's house where we did a hilly 6 miles. They then stayed to enjoy a home cooked breakfast while I ran back home. Total distance for the Sunday run for me 11.03 miles.
    Total distance 13.81 miles
