November Challenge 2 – “Ever Decreasing Circles”

🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️ EVER DECREASING CIRCLES 🏃🏼🏃🏼🏃🏼

Good news for those who don’t live in Dursley…you can do this one anywhere. All you need is a 400m loop (+ or – 25m). Obviously a running track would be perfect, or you can use a street loop like the Crapen in Dursley, or find somewhere near where you live or work.

This one is all about pacing and progression and judgement. All you have to do is run as many consecutive laps of your chosen 400m loop as you can. BUT BUT BUT…each lap must be quicker than the one before it. If you run a slower lap it immediately wipes out your whole score; none of your laps count; you have to start again. So be very careful!

At the end of each lap you need to ask your legs and your lungs if they can go again and go quicker. If you gamble and don’t make it then you lose! If you manage it, then you’ve added another lap to your score and you have another decion to make. It’s all about judgement and knowing what you’ve got left to give.

There will be one winner, the person who achieves the most ‘ever decreasing circles’ – and a booby prize for whoever runs the most laps but then manages to disqualify themselves by running a slower one. Good luck everyone.
