5x50 Day 27. Holiday Time

Holiday time is here! Day 27 of the Challenge to walk, jog or cycle 5km a day for 50 days...

Today, another rest day... still suffering slightly from the last 27 days... planning a run tomorrow before getting ready to hit the road for the first leg of my greek getaway.

Looking forward to completing my 5kms in Zante, should be fun!

For now... it's time for some packing!

5x50 Day 26. Eerily Dark

Final rest day today - although I can't help but feel like I might need some more, my left calf is still a little on the sore side and I've done some damage to my left foot, it's not the happiest it's been.

Still, it's a challenge - and I need to crack on.

Brisk walk this evening, not a 5k, I did around 3k earlier in the day that I wasn't able to log so I'm topping up with this short walk.

An eery walk, all the street lights in my area of Cove we're off... I kid you not, it was pitch black!

5x50 Day 25. Half Distance!

Day 25 of the Challenge... and we're half distance! 25 days down, 25 to go! day No.2 today, legs still giving me aches.

Aiming for a personal best at the end of the week, before some holiday 5kms. I'm actually looking forward to logging from foreign shores!

5x50 Day 24. Rest Day

Almost at half distance in the challenge! Can't quite believe it!

Rest day to try and give my aching muscles a couple of days to recover, I'm planning an attempt at a PB at the end of the week before my week of 5kms on the shores of Zante in Greece, looking forward to it!

5x50 Day 23. Afternoon Outing. First of Many!

Just as the nights are drawing in my working hours move to early doors 'till mid-afternoon.

Daytime, daylight 5k outings are go! That's the positive, the negative? Sleepy 5kms might be arrive by Friday. ha!

If daylight jogging wasn't exciting enough I hit the streets of Cove today with sporty new headphones and 'Pocket Casts' loaded to my phone, a highly recommended Podcast app for Android. It's the simple things...

Average attempt at a 5k run today. For the first time in the challenge I feel like I need a couple of rest days, the kms are catching up with my legs. Couple of rest-day walks could be on the cards this week.
