My Fitness Journey: Couch to Half Marathon Update 4


Hello, January! 
With January comes all the new fitness goals and people wanting to shape up. Whilst I 100% support this, I am feeling slightly envious of their lazy Decembers whilst I was pounding the streets. Over the last month, my training has been slow and steady. I am up to running 6 miles now. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would ever be able to run this far. I am so proud of myself, but the half is ever looming and I've still got a long way to go. As I sit writing this (whilst watching Gilmore Girls) it is exactly 7 weeks till the Bath Half - eeeeekk!! 
Sadly, I have been plagued by injury in the last week. As my mileage is increasing, I have started experiencing knee pain. Then one evening when I was out running, a stabbing pain in the back of my other knee came out of nowhere. I have ordered myself a knee brace, which will hopefully sort out my dodgy knees. Until then, I have been taking my runs slow and keeping them short.
For Christmas, I was lucky enough to get a FitBit Charge 2 from Santa. This has really helped with my training. I love being able to check my distance, heart rate and pace really easily when on the move. I'm going to do a full blog post review on this bit of kit - so watch this space. 
As the half is ever looming, I have set myself up a Just Giving page. Any donations, big or small, would be hugely appreciated. Just head over here if you'd like to donate.... https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Kayleigh-Kate
What are your new year fitness goals?
Love, Kate xx

    1. Ahh thank you, Abbey! So kind! I'm sure you wouldn't be a total fail. Although, I thought I would be too at the beginning.
