So, the conclusion after an awesome coaching session with Jude Palmer from Run Surrey Hills on Monday was that JR and I are both definitely closer to running a full 5k than either of us would have predicted. It was good to hear as both of us were struggling with whether we were actually making progress or not.

Meg Week 3 - Danger Running

For your three runs in week three, you will begin with a brisk five-minute walk, then two repetitions of one-and-a-half minutes of running, one-and-a-half minutes of walking, three minutes of running and three minutes of walking.

Today was my blue Monday. I’m tired, grumpy, hormonal, bloated and I don’t want to run... I could go on. It was my husband’s birthday last week and I ate out no less than five times. I didn’t lose any weight. I’m annoyed. I shouldn’t be because I didn’t put on any either and given the starters, mains and delicious puddings I consumed, that in itself is an achievement.

Its Monday 15th January and today is blue Monday. I’m not feeling blue, I’m feeling excited to be able to finally start couch to 5k.

Meg - Week 1 of Couch to 5k

For the runs in Week 1, you begin with a brisk 5-minute warm-up walk, then alternate 60 seconds of running, with 90 seconds of walking, for a total of 20 minutes.

It’s a big year for me, I’m turning 40. I decided before Christmas I was going to make a change and I’m dragging my finance colleague and sister with me. I’m good like that.

Meg - I don't like running

I don’t like running. I probably shouldn’t say this on a blog about running for a running event but right now it’s true. It’s not that I’m unfit, before I moved to Singapore a few months back, I had a gym membership (that I used) and enjoyed occasional yoga when I could, but like most people, the amount of exercise I did was based on the time, energy and motivation during the week - very rarely weekends.

New year, new team challenge!

A new year, a new start and, for some, a time for change both physically and mentally. That’s the theory anyway! In the Surrey Hills Challenge (SHC) office we’re not massive fans of making New Year resolutions, if you’re going to make a change why wait until the beginning of a New Year? Life is just too short.
