Along the way other people have joined the challenge and last month she had 10 devoted movers and I was one of them. I am proud to report my total for the month was 112.9km. This was made up of 96.1km of walking and I ran 16.8km. The aim for May is to increase the running portion.
Do you think you could complete this challenge? It doesn’t have to be running, can be cycling, walking, jogging, swimming… whatever gets you moving! Use the hashtag #100kmMay on twitter to follow our progress, let us know how you are getting on and we can all encourage each other.
This felt like the perfect opportunity to share some of my snaps from my many walks this month, I’m cheating with the first one – it was taken on Easter Sunday! During a walk into central London we decided to cross Tower Bridge – we could’ve timed it a bit better!
One of my favourite ways of getting myself out on a walk, is the promise of booze & crisps at some point! These were at The Pembury Tavern in Hackney on Easter Monday.
Living so close to the River Lea has some massive advantages, the best being you can walk from Tottenham to Bow without needing a map. It’s also quite beautiful.
Oh look! A convenient drinking establishment – Crate Brewery.
Ballet pumps might look pretty but they are not suitable for long walks. I paid the price for these – a dodgy hip followed by a dodgy knee!
Breakfast for a long walk, including breakfast dessert too!
On Marathon day we walked from home, via mile 21 and then followed the course until the finish – all in all we walked just over 17kms. It felt like all of London were out to support the runners, more so than usual. Well done London, you did us proud and well done to all the amazing runners too. We past the supporters from the Run Dem Crew as the leaders from the women’s race came through mile 21. They were bursting with so much love it brought a little tear to my eye and that was before any of their runners had even been past, I can only imagine how crazy those scenes were!
I had a day in the office this month for training and walked home afterwards, taking advantage of the Regents Canal.
A short stroll to the shops in an April shower produces rainbows.
and running causes you to look pooped but that isn’t a reason to not run!
So join us in the 100 km challenge, make an excuse to get moving.
All these pictures were from my Instagram feed, so apologies to those who have seen them already – they are really for my Mum!
