Your family and the 2.6 Challenge
This Sunday 26th April was the day the Virgin Money London Marathon was supposed to take place, with tens of thousands of participants set to run just over 26 miles through the heart of the British capital. But then coronavirus swept across the world and up-ended all our lives – and the marathon was postponed to October.
As you know, I was due to be running this event, but will hopefully still be able to in October.
As a way of keeping myself motivated I have kept up my running and come Sunday, will have completed a full marathon during this week.
I am going to run the 26.2 miles, broken down into smaller sections, and this is my plan (starting yesterday).
Monday - run 8.13 miles - done
Wednesday - run 2.35
Friday - run 13.1 miles
Sunday - run 2.62 miles
The total of the miles I run will be that of a full marathon - 26.2 miles.
So, your challenge for this week, is to join me on Sunday and complete a range of activities using the numbers 26.2.
You can use the numbers for amount of times to do you task, or a time it takes.
For example, you could do
and of course, the list could go on, and on and on. Why don't you come up with your own challenge.
Don't forget to let me know how you get on and we can see how many of us, this Sunday, finish the final 2.62 miles of the marathon together in whatever way we choose.
