I will train throughout September to be able to run 3 miles at an average 6m30s per mile

I'm fundraising for brain matters!

I’m doing Connor’s Run to support the brave and awesome kids fighting brain cancer - the #1 disease killer of young people, and to fund the science that will one day end paediatric brain cancer. 

Brain cancer research is on the tipping point. We can all be part of making important breakthroughs happen. My participation is something that I can do to support the science and in the meantime the patients. For all the people out there currently battling brain tumours and for those who couldn’t wait for research to progress any longer.

I’m doing this because I know we can find a way to make brain cancer go the way of the dinosaurs. Make a donation to my page and be part of making brains matter, together we can change the odds for young people.

My Updates

Baseline for improvement

Tuesday 6th Sep
Sharing an update from my gym visit on Friday. It was my first time back since holiday so the main purpose was to understand my current fitness levels and set a baseline for improvement. It is safe to say there will be plenty of work ahead in the coming weeks to make sure I can hit my goal. The good news is that it is definitely in the legs to run a 6m.30s mile. The challenge will be maintaining the pace !

It starts today

Thursday 1st Sep
Today is the first day of working towards my goal of being able to run 3 miles at an average of 6 minutes 30 seconds a mile. To help everyone understand the goal please visit https://www.healthline.com/health/average-mile-time. 

To build towards this goal I will need to improve my current running speed and fitness and plan to train a min of 3 times a weeks to achieve this outcome. I will share progress of my performance as I work towards this outcome.

Thanks for supporting me.
