#PoppyChallenge week two and the requirement to push @virtualrunneruk

Week 2 of the Poppy Challenge brought us to Armistice Day and I used this as an opportunity to run down towards St Pauls post work and share a few moments of quiet rememberance. Sadly week 2 has been a mixed bag as my working hours have been stupidly crazy, public transport has been rubbish with all the ‘leaves on the line’ and I’m not really recovering from illness. Now work will abate eventually and the trains will sort their shit out but this lingering illness is wiping me out. I’m properly struggling to get into a stride as my chest is constantly on fire. Still when all said and done I managed 80km in week 2 and with a final push I should make my 300km total soon.

Finally my congratulations go out to everyone for their week 2 efforts, there’s a tremendous amount of effort kicking about and you should all be hugely proud of your achievements.
