So last week I completed my Couch to 5k journey and despite not really enjoying it (I said in the last post “I have always found exercise to be a chore and derive no pleasure from it whatsoever” and I stand by that) I have continued with it as I am using it as a way to help me lose weight.
At the same time as I was complaining about completing 5k Eddie Izzard was doing 42.195 kilometres a day for 27 days for charity. I take my hat off to him as I really cannot comprehend how he managed to do it when I struggle to run for half an hour. In fact on the last day Izzard did the equivalent of two marathons (84.39K). Unbelievable.
So kudos to Eddie Izzard. I won’t be emulating your feat but I am inspired to keep it up and I have bought some new trainers to celebrate!
