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. Here is my weekly update.
We went on a 14 mile bike ride as a family. You can go and read Day Out Cycling to Glasson Dock. It really has spurred on some other biking ideas!!
Monday morning is normally FitMums. Today I decided not to go, the Robot kept me up with teeth issues and I was tired. My Mum came to visit though and we went for a walk along the coast and back! 5k done!
Walked 2k in the morning then walked 3k with the buggy and the rain in the afternoon. Always a struggle when it’s raining! I’m thankful for a buggy rain cover for the little one!
Wednesday is a group day. Not a lot of time for walking but I did a massive loop around the canal to get to the children’s centre in the morning which upped my k’s for the day. 5k achieved from walking venue to venue!!
We went to Happy Mount Park, indeed it was happy and we got in our 5k walk followed by a play on the baby park!
Dave keeps having Friday’s off. We caught the train with our bikes again and cycled back home. Another 8 miles under our belts, aka 12.5k.
Dave’s parents came to visit today. We went for a walk around the local area, down some paths I’ve not been on before. 9k later we are all pretty tired and enjoy a biscuit and cup of tea!!
