This happened while I was sat up, comfy in my bed, with the laptop on, tv on, lots of naughty food and drink around me. I had put together my 'Sunday Randomness - Motivation' post and I was feeling positive. My thoughts turned to the upcoming week and how great it will be to complete some sort of exercise each day. Still from the comfort of my bed, I planed my fitness schedule for the week commencing 15 April 2013, it looked good, but I needed something more, something to work and aim for.
I found myself searching for race dates, nothing too big, something that would be realistic and would give a novice like me a taste of what I could do when I put my mind to it. I found a 5k race, in my area for next month (that seemed realistic and enough time to train). I signed myself and Chris (for support) up for the 'Woodland Woggle' (great name) on the 19 May 2013 in my hometown of Surrey, the description won me over:
"The Woodland Woggle 5k run, is a challenging one lap Trail Race that starts in the beautiful Hampton estate, used in many film sets. Which goes through lovely Surrey countryside with some undulating hills into stunning bluebell woods, then has a descent into a large pine forest back to the finish, where bacon sandwiches, tea, coffee and cakes are available to purchase."
Who could say no to that? I couldn't! I am now signed up, my mind is ready..... I now need to get my body ready.
What time should I be aiming for, please let me know.
These are some photos from the 'Woodland Woggle' website from previous years.
