Reading Time: 2 minutes

Wow! Week 6 of my 2012 challenge complete already? Where is this year going to? I guess it’s time for an update on how I’m doing with the challenge.

Talk about end the week on a high. Having done the 160 mile round trip to drop the girls back at their mum’s place I decided – having been cooped up most of the day – I’d go for a run. So I did. And I ran, ran some more, and ran some more. I managed to clock up my longest run so far this year, completing 20km in just over two hours! Quite pleased about that.

Anyway, here’s the breakdown for the last week:

As well as chalking up my longest run of the year so far, I also managed to do my longest cycle on my exercise bike this week too doing 24 miles in just under an hour!

I’m really pleased with how this challenge is shaping up and I can honestly say that I don’t think I’ve ever experienced such enthusiasm as I have with the bunch of guys and gals who are taking part in this challenge. It’s a great little community that’s sprung up on Facebook, Twitter and dailymile that can’t help but spur you on!

Don’t forget, you can get to my fundraising page at the following location:

The page will be live throughout my challenge this year (and a couple of months after) so please, when you can, give a few pounds to help some very worthy charities.

Why not do like my good mate Stu’s doing? He’s sponsoring me 2p a mile – which is amazingly generous, thanks Stu! You don’t have to pledge that much; 1p, 1/2p, 1/10p…it’ll all add up considering I’ll be covering at least 4012 miles this year!

Thanks. It means a lot and is very much appreciated.
