Just a quick post to say hi and introduce myself ...
I'm a newbie to all this "serious" stuff, and was searching around for some way to maintain momentum and build up slowly. As I noticed the big 5 oh approaching, I decided that I needed to get going on something serious before it's "too late". Si I decided a couple of years ago to start with running by using my daily commute (about 3.5 hilly miles.)
Over the past year I've built up to 4 days per week and 2 weeks ago entered my first race: the Course de l'Escalade in Geneva (7.25 hilly kilometers) and pleased myself by beating my 35 minute target. I felt so much better after than I imagined I would, and came over all inspired ... and I decided to sign up for this challenge in the hope that it will keep me from giving up over the cold dark months (I ran in snow at 8am this morning.)
Assuming I survive the 100 in 100, I'd appreciate any tips from the many experienced folk out there on where I should aim next ... should I work next on increasing my mileage, my speed, should I add swimming (I already swim once per week) or cycling (I do own a bike ... I'm sure I've seen it somewhere) or something else?
