2016K Challenge – Weeks 48 and 49

Week 48

Distance completed    =     13 miles    (20.10 km)

Distance to go               =    234.81 miles  (369.61 km)

 

Week 49

Distance completed   =    12 miles (19.30 km)

Distance to go              =   222.81 miles ( 350.31 km)

Well with the best will in the world I’m not going to run 200 miles in three weeks.  As I’ve said in previous posts, I underestimated how much the marathon would take out of me back in May.  Never mind it’s been an interesting exercise.

No challenges next year, just a couple of new races to look forward to.  I can’t wait!

2016K Challenge – Weeks 44 and 45

Week 44

Distance completed    =    11.3 miles (18.2 km)

Distance to go               =   301.06 miles (475.51 km)

 

Week 45

Distance completed     =   21.6 miles (34.8 km)

Distance to go                = 279.46 miles (440.71 km)

 

Okay so I think it’s safe to say I’m going to fall a little short of my target.  I’ve already said I think I underestimated how long it would take me to recover from my marathon in May.
Not to worry it’s still been a useful exercise.

Brodie Castle 10K 2016

I was lucky enough to take part in a new race this morning (well a new race for me).

Brodie Castle is a National Trust for Scotland property which is around 16 miles west of my home town.  I’ve not visited it for years, probably not since I was at school.

Anyway there was a 10K race last year which I some how managed to miss, but when I found out one was being held again this year I knew I had to take part.

The races started and finished in the castle grounds, with the intervening miles taking place on the nearby roads.  It started at 11am and, being a Sunday, the roads were pretty quiet.

Around 350 people took part and it was a really lovely event which was very well organised.

The weather was freezing but then again it is November in Scotland!

I took a bit of video at the start and also at the finish.  You can watch it here.

 If there’s a race next year then I shall definitely be there.

Forgot to post this – oops!  I think it’s unlikely I’m going to complete my challenge but it’s okay, I’ve still completed pretty good mileage this year.  I’ll keep trying, whatever!
