Happy New Year!

OK, so here is your chance to sign up for the challenge of running 2018 miles in 2018, approximately 39 miles per week. Doesn't sound too hard eh?

The 'running week' will run from Monday to Sunday. This year we are fortunate that the year started on a Monday, so the first report will be your mileage up to an including Sunday 7th January.

I will try to do a bar chart once per week, but I'm not going to guarantee to do it by any particular day as that didn't work very well last year.

So who is up for it?

Let the challenge commence!

I'm in. I ought to be able to do it but I fell short in 2017 due to chronic injuries affecting at least the first three months. This year I already need to be getting up to speed for Rotterdam marathon. Thanks for carrying the torch again, Claire.

I'm in!

All being well I'll probably jump ahead of the 39/week average in the first few months building up to a 53mi race in April - but hopefully this'll be my motivation to keep at it afterwards :D

So that's six of us so far Hopefully we'll get a couple more to make the bar chart look a bit more impressive.

I have finished my last run for the week - a decent start to the year. 50.14 miles done.

Off to a bit of a duff start here due to dispatching my SO to work in the Netherlands for a year, hence a period of feeling sorry for myself ;) 30 miles YTD to Sunday.

I think that this is borderline for me, but what the hell I may as well. It's only an extra 464 miles over last year, what could possibly go wrong? :lol:

So far this year I've done a paltry 9.5 miles.

In my defence it's still less than 4 weeks since my last marathon and recovery was (and still is) very much required. I am back to training now though so things should return to something resembling normal over the next couple of weeks.

I can also join, but I am not sure I will be able to make it. At the moment, I am doing well. As of today, I am at 74 miles. I will probably slow down a bit in May.

53 km last week, 102 km YTD = 63 miles YTD.

Off to a weak start too, but since there are several others in a similar position I won't drop out :) I'm getting physio treatment for an upper back problem that makes it painful to breathe, hence the pleasure of running is somewhat restricted right now.
