Challenge in a Challenge

In addition to the not insignificant overall goal of running 1000km in 2020, I’m planning to use the Tonne Run Challenge to fulfill some smaller aims for the year that will help me reach the total.

For example, I’d like to run a half marathon distance at least twice, once in training and once as a recorded race. I’ve done a fair amount of running over the past year or so (though nowhere near 1000km!) but it’s mostly been confined to 10km or shorter runs. I’ve felt quite comfortable with this distance and haven’t really felt the need to push myself much further but the Tonne Run Challenge provides a good opportunity to stretch myself! Speaking with a few runner friends this should be achievable without too much distance-specific training so really just have to pick one and get on with it! Might wait until the weather improves slightly at least…

If you’d like to keep up with my progress throughout the year please do follow the blog, and more importantly please consider donating to EFTC through my Virgin Money Giving page (link below) to support their incredible work.
