The 500 Mile Page Tracker for Charity Run

This is a public post for all of those tracking my 500-mile run for The Children’s Foundation. All runs, data and notes will be added each time I take on a new run. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have donated and supported me so far and I look forward to achieving my goal of 500 miles before I sit down for Christmas Dinner in December. All donations are still welcome right up until December 24th. Please, Please, Please make a donation to such an amazing charity.

Let’s get after it! 💪🏼

My Comments: Another run complete at David Lloyd Teesside. Final run before we leave for a holiday next week. Miles to catch up on once I return from my break so I am going to have to really knuckle down and get on with the catchup. I can do it!

My Comments: Another run complete at David Lloyd Teesside. Ergh! what a week, fell off the wagon already, not good at all. I’ve gone nearly a full week without running. May reasons, Work schedule, 6 weeks holidays and a slight niggle on my ankle but no excuses. I managed a 10k this AM early before heading out for Helen’s birthday meal at the Spotted Cow!

My Comments: Another run complete at David Lloyd Teesside. Start of the week after a long weekend of working catchup. Had to really force myself to go after work today to get this in. I need to make sure I get myself out running as we come into a very busy period at the office and managing the 6 weeks school holidays. A reminder to keep at it and organise properly.

My Comments: Well that did’t go to plan did it! I went for a treadmill run at David Lloyds Teesside and My Apple watch Decide to die mid way through! I managed to get a photo at the end for evidence. 3.47 Miles ran!

Day 14, Run 14 – 🏃‍♂️ July 29th 2023

Miles Ran: 3.72 Miles

Strava Link: https://strava.app.link/TL4auccuRBb

My Comments: The first run after my holidays. I have lots of catching up to do next week, a few 10k’s should get me back on track but just wanted to get back on track with some warm-up miles to get me going.

My Comments: Another run complete at David Lloyd Teesside. A run before I go away on holiday for the first week of the kids 6 weeks holiday. I’ll be taking my running trainers away with me but who knows if I’ll get runs in! This was a nice, steady run to get the miles in.

My Comments: Another run complete at David Lloyd Teesside. After a fantastic day at the Middlesbrough Front End event I decided to make my way over for another run. This run was directly after my 10k+ yesterday which I found quite difficult. I started to get shin splints at around 1 mile and really had to push through this to get it done. More later in the week!

My Comments: Another run complete at David Lloyd Teesside. I Did not want to run at all today! I just wasn’t feeling it at all but I had to get my running boots on and get moving. A very hot, tough run but I got there in the end. I had to split this one in to two separate runs as my 1 hour 5 minutes didn’t cut the mustard! I need to stop eating crisps at dinner time! 🤮

My Comments: Another run complete at David Lloyd Teesside. Evening run after a busy day at Premier Prints HQ shipping a bunch of orders. I think I could probably take the next step up now to 12k-15k in the next few runs. This crosses the 50 miles for the month, looking forward to the next 50.

My Comments: This AM I found out that my mother had passed away from a long illness. After a long day of sadness I actually wanted to go for a hard run, this one turned out to be a bit more than what was required so it put’s me ahead of schedule a little ready for our holiday in a few weeks. My second 10k+ in the space of a week. Another one complete at David Lloyd Teesside

My Comments: Another run complete at David Lloyd Teesside after missing my run on Saturday in York. I knew I had to get back to it, what better way than to do on a Sunday afternoon 10k whilst watching the Silverstone GP. Super proud of Helen who also put in a tonne of miles with me as well, she ran for the full hour and managed to clock up 6km+, well done!! 👏👏 Looking forward to the next one!

Day 5, Run 5 – 🏃‍♂️ July 7th 2023

Miles Ran: 3.20 Miles

Strava Link: https://strava.app.link/q2w1mbaufBb

My Comments: Not sure what is going on with these street runs but them seem super difficult! A short but very hard run, unsure why it seems so hard but I must admit it was pretty warm out this afternoon. Heading to York tomorrow so I’ll post a run from there at some point over the weekend.

Day 4, Run 4 – 🏃‍♂️ July 5th 2023

Miles Ran: 4.04 Miles

Strava Link: No Data (In Door Run)

Backup Link (Apple Health and Fitness): Apple Fitness Data

My Comments: Another run complete at David Lloyd Teesside, legs are feeling a lot better with some consistency in place, I ran through this 4.20 miles quiet easily this afternoon so I feel like I need to turn things up a little, possibly start hitting the 5 and 6 miles a day to bank some days off. We’ll see after tomorrow, i’ll be back on a street run tomorrow.

My Comments: Yesterday I rested up and made sure I got my legs back into some form of useable shape. This run was a treadmill run at David Lloyd Teesside, my legs felt absolutely fine on this one, I just had a few moments of stretching I needed to do during the run. More tomorrow.

More updates as I start the working week, thank you so much to everyone for donating, I am already at £40.00! Thanks to David Winter, Amanda, Kelly and Linzi hugely appreciate it. The money will change lives!
