I am nearly at the end of the first week of #MarchtheMonth for Prostate Cancer UK and things are going well.
So far I have walked 81,524 steps or an average of 11,646 steps per day. To put this in perspective, it takes 75,000 steps to walk up Kilimanjaro twice!
I have managed to add in a number of runs this week and March the Month has been instrumental in giving me the will to go out and reboot my running.
I had a heavy start as I went a bit mad, but I managed interval runs on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and today! I have already noticed I am adding strength, speed and distance to my runs so it’s paying off.
I thought it would be hard this week to maintain my steps target as I spent two days hosting a workshop but I was pleasantly surprised that I managed to complete my steps goal.
During the challenge, I have also been steadily capturing a collection of photographs to add to my 11,000 Steps zine project.
Lets’ not forget why I am doing this. To raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK and to help people such as my dad and others whom I have since learnt are affected by this terrible disease.
Without the funding and the support, the research could not continue and chances to beat prostate cancer or inform those suffering would be far fewer.
My sponsorship goal has been smashed but that’s not to say it should stop. If you have not sponsored me yet, please do if you are able as every donation counts.
To those who have sponsored me and have been checking up on my progress, thank you so much. The encouragement and the support mean an awful lot and I find it tremendously supportive both when I am fundraising and when I am dealing with the personal challenges of going through this journey.
