It's Another Virtual Weekend
Matt Get to John 0 Groats
Ladles and Jellyspoons, unacustard as I am to public speaking...Yay! I've finished LeJog version #1.
What a great idea and I'm not sure what I would have done when lock-down first became a reality and working from home started to take its toll! This challenge has kept me sane and given me something to strive for. Normally I do 15miles a week, so this was a decent upgrade on that.
My combined Excel spreadsheet and graph tells me:
7.94 miles average run distance
136:45 hrs:mins in total
9:23 minute mile average (mainly trail running)
61390ft of total elevation change (up & down Everest?)
On completion, I'd like to thank the wife for putting up with me, Tori & Nathan for organising, Yeovil Town RRC fellow lejog-ers for being there, my mother for having me, the British wildlife for amazing experiences, the British weather for the great tan I've got, the London Pride brewery for being there when I got back home, my workplace for not noticing the lack of working from home, Strava for recovering from the hack issue so quickly, and a host of others, but not least me legs for getting me through! Loved it

From Sam: Hi Kevin Doherty I've completed the YTRRC 5k mental health day as a walk.
From Sam Self: Finally completed my 5k for mental health day! Sweating out yesterday’s cocktails
From Marathon Mike: Oh dear, 5k is not my distance but I’m shooting for a full winter set in Kev’s challenge. Nursing a couple of sore hips from yesterday’s long run and it was hot, hot,hot. I’m starting Bungy’s diet to try and get under 7 min pace (well done mate). Thanks to motivator Kev, it takes a bit to get me to do a 5k, didn’t enjoy it but I just think of this maxim.
The Glass is too small
From Katie: My first club virtual race Lovely to get out and some much needed motivation. time was certinly longer then 30 mins but 5k completed
From Ali and Rob: We can't be arsed to write a post.
From Lynne: Such a beautiful morning , but several mistakes Can’t run fast at best of times , let alone first thing in morning , so 1 mile warm up , 5km. But silly to try to run fast on trail route , also encouraging a cow to get back over fence so it doesn’t join in the 5km. Too old for this., ! Warm down .
