The #FMRMC Programme & Recruits

We have ladies from all across the globe and are a range of ages, ethnicities and sizes, some have never run a mile before in their lives and one has recently just completed her first half marathon, another has just done her last long run (25ish miles) before her February 2nd Marathon.

We did have some drop outs from the original 16 in the summer so we recruited some new additions, and again through the autumn months some ladies pulled out once again. The programme is hardcore and requires a great deal of commitment, and determination, it was always inevitable that some ladies would not see the whole challenge to the end.

So in January 2014 after 8 months of training the 11 remaining recruits were given the option to go for a full marathon or a half marathon, we currently have 4 ladies on track for a full 26.2 and the remaining 7 all signed up for 13.1s

So I guess you want to know who is involved in the challenge right? Here they are, check out their blogs (by clicking on their names) or follow them on twitter using the hashtag FMRMC

    Excellent, i will be trying to follow along but what is the 30 day squat challenge and where can i find it? As already started the C25k programme, so will be plodding along with you all girls – would be great if all the lucky girls could write a small piece so we can get to know them

      I will be doing features on all of then in the next few weeks. If you do a google search you will find a graphic which explains it, but basically today’s challenge is 50 squats, tomorrows is 55 and it goes up and up. The trick is to try doing them all in one go, but you can split them into sets if that’s too hard!!
