I’ve Run A 5k And My Second 5k

My first 5k runs

I’ve done it, yes I’ve officially run a 5k. Also not only have I done it but I’ve now done it twice.

I completed the first one just over a week ago, last Saturday on 7th November. Then I did my second today, in Brisbane of all places.

Day 30 of The MAD Challenge and it is nearly over. I am back home now covering a mile a day on familiar territory.

Over the last 2 weeks I haven’t been able to run due to a hip injury and problems with water retention in my right leg. Whilst neither has fully recovered, I’m hoping that the hip is now close to being able to tolerate a run.

Day 29 of The MAD Challenge comes to you from Surrey. I spent last night catching up with a school friend so a few beers were had.

A late night and drinks seemed like a perfect combination for me to have a lie in on a Saturday morning but it wasn’t to be. I awoke just after 6 feeling tired but I struggled to go to sleep again.

Day 26 of The MAD Challenge and I guess my luck has run out. Until now, apart from Day 1, every mile I have covered has been in dry conditions. Not today.

As I’ve explained in earlier days, rain is forecast all week here in London and it has certainly been raining. Thankfully on Monday and Tuesday my mile a day outings have been just before the downpours.

Day 25 of The MAD Challenge and the countdown is most definitely on towards the end of the month. As I enjoy the varied sights and sounds of London I’m greeted with darkness for my morning miles.

Today’s start was again in darkness but thankfully it was dry. There was a lot of heavy rain throughout yesterday, yet again I was fortunate enough to be greeted with a dry morning. It appeared as though we’d been without rain for most of the night.
