5×50 is a challenge where you have to walk, run or cycle 5k a day for 50 days. It started on Sunday 27th April. The philosophy behind 5×50 is that exercise should become a habit not a chore. I failed to get my week 5 update written last week so I here is a run down of my last fortnight! I’ll try and make it interesting!
After not really leaving the house all day I looked to Dave to babysit the Robot while I took off on my bike. I cycled 9 miles round the local area. 14k completed! I hope that more than makes up for my rubbish day 28!
Went for a walk with my Mum, 5K Complete
We went in search of bluebells, that is another 5k done!
Wednesday and an extended walk to my baby groups. 5k, check!
Fit4Mums is on a different day, different place. Cycle there and back 7K + a Fit4Mums class. I got a puncture on my bike on the way home too. It was raining and the Robot had fallen asleep, walked part of the way home pushing the bike. New experiences all round!
Another walk with my Mum, 5K complete!
A special trip out for lunch consisted on a walk down the canal to Longlands Pub. There and back, a mighty 12k
Let the Bank Holiday Sunday rain commence. I got the Robot in his buggy with rain cover and took an extended walk around the shops and canal tow path. The benefits of 3 supermarkets in close distance… 5K done!
Bank Holiday Monday. Still drizzly in the morning. Holding out for the sunny clouds in the afternoon, we went for a walk with Daddy, oh, another 5k!
After a long day stuck in the car, I got to leave the Robot with Daddy and go out for a quick power walk! ALONE! 5K check!
It’s sunny again. A walk to my usual baby group and an extra in the afternoon. 5K done!
No bike this week, still waiting for a new tyre for my bike, it was a vicious puncture! A Fit4Mums class though so, consider todays exercise complete!
Took a train ride into town, all the walking to and from the station, 6k completed.
Bit of a mish mash of walking today, to the shops first. Then off to go camping, lots of little walks around the campsite and to the local pub, 5k completed!
There is a week to go till the end now, with a week of fine weather ahead I am hoping for a grand finale! Do you get out every day? Where do you go? What do you do?
