Last week I was about the same as the previous week, with 96 km, making 1291 km aka 802 miles ytd.
I have been using the new Strava routefinding improvements quite a lot. On Sunday I found a nice mixed route for 26.2 km to take part in the numbers appeal. It took me on bike paths, trails and dunes and in general it helps me a lot to get to know the region of North Holland where I live some of the time, especially now in lockdown when I cannot get back to my primary home in Norway. I load the routes onto a Fenix 5 and just follow the line. Recommended as a way of exploring.
Hi folks, 79 km for me this week, making 1370 km aka 851 miles ytd.
The week got off to a bad start. I developed a fever of 38.5C but soon started getting the same symptoms that I had ten weeks ago. Then we concluded with dr interwebs that it was hives. This time I was in with antihistamine pills quicker and I was working my way back up to normal mileage towards the end of the week. I got so much rest that I extended my sunday long run to 3 hrs/29 km so I could assume I'm back to normal.
Hi folks, thanks for the sympathy, Claire. All better now, but it's a bit of a mystery what brings it on.
This week I ran a long run on Netherlands liberation day early in the week, then another long run today, so my mileage is higher than normal. 115 km covered, making 1485 km aka 923 miles YTD.
I have a 10 km virtual race coming up in place of Leiden marsthon. I'll try to get a bit of rest and go for a benchmark time (I won’t say good) on my 63rd birthday. It won't be hard to find somewhere flat round here but wind is another thing
67.6 miles this week for me and all seems fine. Looks like my many weeks of 46 miles has built a solid enough foundation to let me move up a gear. Only downside is that I go through my trainer heels in approx 300 miles so this could end up costly lol.
That gives me a total of 923 miles so far this year.
I'm a 50 year-old male recreational runner, can't call myself competitive, just for the fitness/enjoyment, although entered my first 10k last year (I forget my exact time but managed a mud-caked sub-50) and ran the GNR (my first half) last Sept (1:54:39). Just getting back into it after...
My 12 year old son wants to improve his 800m and 1500m pbs. He's running fit but has just started on the track and has time to do 2-3 training sessions per week. Can anyone advise how long for example it might take to get an 800m pb down from 2min 38 secs to 2 min 30secs? Or a 1500m pb down...
My running (slojog/fastwalk) log used to be on this forum until it was deleted in the update. By way of compensation I have restarted it here. Unfortunately it will no longer have the statistical figures for past years. Starting mileage for this year until yesterday is 153. And there off.......
So, here we go again.
As usual, we will report our mileages weekly with each week ending on a Sunday.
The average daily mileage for 2019 in the year is 5.53 miles, which is 38.72 per week.
The first week is a short one, running up to 6th January. Anyone interested, please let me have you...
