If you read my blog last year you may remember I took part in Race for Life (Leeds) with my friend, Rose. It was a great experience and a good excuse to get fit and raise money for charity. I promised myself I would carry on running once the event was over, but alas, I stopped. I think it's a great idea to have these events to train towards - a goal is always a good thing to spur you on.
With that in mind I have signed up again for the Sheffield event which takes place in a few weeks time, and since I signed up last week I've been out jogging every night. I am determined to run the whole 5k so my training needs to step up a gear if I'm going to be prepared in time. My sponsorship page is looking a bit sparse so I'm going to be badgering my family and friends to sponsor me a couple of quid if they can over the next few weeks.
Jogging doesn't come naturally to me (if it does for anyone?!) but I work really hard at it. In the past week alone I have got my speed up from a snail's pace to a reasonable speed and managed to stop myself stopping when I get tired!
Have you done a Race for Life event or have you got one coming up soon?
