Alex D @alex45674

Began running in 2006 3-4 times a week. I have completed loads of races (about 15 a year) from 5k to Marathon (3 London, 2 Beachy Head), but was not getting any faster or thinner! Started running every day to train for the 5x50 Challenge (5x50.co.uk) in Sept-Oct 2012 and loved it! Completed the challenge and lost 9lb in the process. Have run the challenge every time since!

I now try and run most days, and want to have a huge 2015 now I am more or less recovered from my February 2014 car accident.

Loving the challenges here too, and enjoying buying smaller clothes and throwing out the big things :)

Next challenge is the 5x50 challenge - please follow@NiftyandAlex on Twitter, the challenge on @5x50challenge and see the website 5x50.org for details.

PBs:
5K 27:16 (2013)
Half 2:21:59
Marathon 5:32:33

Contributorgold Alex D Off for my lunchtime walk next. Got a thumping headache and a walk usually helps. Very cold today, although the snow stopped at last and hasn't laid here in Lydd phew!

Kevin G and Isabelle C encouraged this.

Thanks Kevin! It helped a bit but it is still there. Got a horrible feeling I am getting the cold my 3 colleagues who I share an office with have been passing around! Had a nice walk in the chilly but sunny air though, just over 5k! Best of luck on Sunday, look forward to hearing how you get on! You have a great weekend too :)

Contributorgold Alex D Arrrghhhh the Met Office are forecasting snow for Canterbury during my homeward drive tonight yuck. I don't mind weather, I will run in it, walk in it, whatever but I hate driving in snow. My car can cope but so much dangerous driving from others :( Sunny here for now.

Alex D 2013 squats in 2013... Challenge

Contributorgold Alex D Taken for 2015. Surprised this challenge is not archived though!

20141001103128-alex45674

Bit random I think! A lot of it made perfect sense 'Eat an apple' is not a challenge! However there are still a lot of timed ones relating to events which have gone or years which have gone (although at the point the archive was done maybe they were still in the future!). It made sense but I don't think the job was completed.
