Sport Relief Training


For those of you that know me, know I'm the least athletic person you'll meet HOWEVER I am keen on doing some charity work whenever I can so when my office decided we would be running for Sport Relief on 20th March, I was eager to jump on board - even more when our company told us they would give us £500 towards our target of £1000 if 10 employees took part. I enjoy taking on a challenge and so I thought this would be a good opportunity to try and increase my fitness, whilst loosing a bit of weight and at the same time raising money for a good cause!

After reading that you're probably thinking wow, what a brilliant thing to do however I am only running 3 miles! I have never been able to run up the stairs without loosing my breath so if I can do this then that in itself is an achievement for me. 

The run is in less than a week and I am only a third of the way there, I can currently run 1.24 miles without caving in - my goal seems incredibly far away and right now impossible. I have hit so many hurdles whilst trying to train for this such as my inability to control my breathing thus stopping before I have even started.  

Last night I tried to change things up a bit and went for a run along the seafront, it was absolutely beautiful. I think it helped, it's the furthest I have managed to run and I feel I somewhat made an improvement on my breathing towards the end.

The weather has been lovely this week which meant it was even nicer in the evening when running and I loved the smell of the sea blushing past in the wind - a perk of living on the coast!

We have nearly reached our target and we could use as many donations as possible, just £20 could provide life saving medication for 100 children with Malaria in Uganda. Imagine what £1000 could do.

Please go and donate whether it be £2 or £10 anything will make a difference.

Let me know if anyone has any tips on improving my running capability.
