Reading Time: 2 minutes

Week 47: a great week this week; lots of miles covered! I managed to keep to my plan to get this challenge finished in time for Christmas so fingers crossed I can keep it up for the next few weeks.

After catching up with my running miles last week I managed to finish this week 14 miles up on where I should be right now, leaving me just 71 miles left to run.

I’ve also almost caught up with my cycling miles, finishing the week just 18.57 miles down which should be covered in the coming week. Only 211 miles left to go on the exercise bike now!

All in all, after having hit a bit of a low point the other week, I’ve found new enthusiasm for this challenge and I’m determined to get this done and dusted – all targets hit – before the Christmas week. I don’t suppose it did any harm on the enthusiasm front being in the paper the other week either?

Here are the scores on the doors for this week:

Sponsor Me Please!

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

http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/AnotherBadIdea

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.
