4x4x48 Challenge

The challenge: run 4 miles, every 4 hours for 48 hours. I stumbled upon the 4x4x48 challenge a couple of years ago and it has resonated with me ever since. Popularised by American fitness guru, ex navy seal and ultra runner David Goggins, it’s now an annual event featured heavily across all social media platforms.Continue reading “4x4x48 Challenge”

Maegen Fitness Lifestyle

I’ve never obsessed about my weight. I lead a fairly active lifestyle. I’m fortunate enough to be able to run 4 to 5 times a week, averaging between 30-40 miles outside training blocks and have completed distances from parkrun to ultramarathons.

The Black Mountains

I love an adventure! I’d run the Black Mountains at the end of last year, not as a race but with a group of friends who have the same love of the trails as I do. The hills have some serious elevation, throw in some technical, mixed terrain and you have the idyllic runners playground.Continue reading “The Black Mountains”
