2017 miles in 2017

We had a '2015 miles in 2015' thread two years ago but didn't do the equivalent in 2016. For those who want a more challenging target than '2017 km in 2017', how about going for the number in miles?

I ran 1920 miles last year, so have a reasonable chance of achieving this. If there are a few others I promise I will do a nice bar chart. Might even bring back the gold, silver and bronze stars for the first three to complete the challenge.

For the purposes of this challenge, the 'running week' runs from Monday to Sunday inclusive. The first week of the year will be an eight day week as it will include Sunday 1st January. So if people can report their mileage up to 8th Jan inclusive then weekly thereafter I will try to update the bar chart, if we have one, by the Wednesday following.

I could join you on this as I am about the same level in distance and I prefer here to a similar thread on RW.

This challenge just gets harder every year.

Now that my little one is nearing 2 years old, I'm getting in much more regular training so may as well have a shot at this.

Count me in and I'll post weekly mileage updates on a Monday.

Gosh, I think we already have the requisite minimum number for a bar chart!

I'm doing it in Km. I failed my own challenge when I set the 2015km two years ago so not expecting much better this time!

Someone may set up a km thread but there is really no point in me doing it as I have far exceeded that for the past two years. It wouldn't be a challenge any more.

I only did 1039 miles last year, and doubling that seems unrealistic so I set one up over here for anyone that wants to do it in km

I'll have a go, I've done that many miles in a year before but I've 'only' got to 1600ish for the last few

No real time frame although before I'm 30 seems like a logical cutoff!

I enjoy using the comedy technique of self-deprecation... but I'm not very good at it
