Kev Mars - Accumulator Run
So the challenge is called an Accumulator run.
This involves running the same number of miles as the day of the month :
Day 1 – 1 mile (although I will be running 3 on this day for 2 reasons. Firstly 1 mile just seems way too easy and the second reason is to add a couple of miles to round up the mileage)
Day 2 – 2 miles (again same as above by adding 2 miles to 4)
Day 3 – 3 miles .................etc
Day 31 – 31 miles
So week 1 is relatively tame with a maximum of 32 miles then week 2 is 77 miles, week 3 is 126 miles, week 4 is 175 and the remaining 3 days of the month total 90 miles.
Grand total is 496 miles (this is the reason I am running extra miles at the beginning to round it up to 500) which isn’t a huge number but its the effect of the increase that is the challenge.
I am raising money for R2R and RBL Jersey as these are the 2 charities that have massively supported me.
