10 in 10 Challenge

A group of 12 committed and passionate runners are taking on the challenge of completing
10 miles EVERYDAY, for 10 days. 
This will be completed around their daily commitments of work, families and every day stresses.
One of those passionate individuals is Sam who is one of our wonderful Clinical Nurse Specialists here at the hospice.
Not only is this a massive physical challenge it’s a mental challenge too and we wish everyone all the very best. We will be sharing the runners stories throughout the challenge. 
Starting on the 19th March.

Samantha Sanders

Hi, my name is Sam, I work at Bassetlaw Hospice. Leading up to the event I have been completing my usual running training which usually consists of 2 training sessions, a long run and a recovery run each week. The average distance I cover in a typical week is around 35 miles so this is a massive leap for me, I do get fatigued and achy joints after a longer run usually, so ensuring I eat properly and get plenty of sleep will be key. I have pulled my back on Sunday and I’m struggling to walk at the minute without pain, so the next few days will be spent stretching and trying to improve this little issue, a trip to the physio may be in order.

Anyway, I see this all as part of the challenge, and look forward to seeing how I cope, mentally and physically.

Hi, my name is Ali and although I've always enjoyed exercise I was somewhat out of shape when I drunkenly agreed to take up the 10 for 10 challenge (Samantha sanders talked me into it on Feb 14th)
This left me less than 5 weeks to go from an unfit bloke into someone who can run 100 miles in 10 days. I started training straight away and ran 3 miles every day that week.
With 4 days left before the start I'm up to 6 miles a day. I've had blisters and sore muscles but it's all for a wonderful cause. I'll just have to jump into the challenge head first and have faith in myself. Good luck to all my fellow runners (I know I'm going to need a little)
