I find the longer slower runs help 'blow the cobwebs away'. Although I know the benefits of the faster sessions, I feel better if I go out further. Lately having got fed up with some routes, I now drive a few miles, dump the car then run a new circuit, and it feels great.
Yes, give it a go, sad to use the treadmill too much. Many of my routes are really muddy now, i know some people like that, but some are so 'sticky' that I can't actually run.
I just drive somewhere different, with somewhere 'safe' to leave the car, or get someone to drop you off somewhere (not 20 miles away though!) and then get a buzz from a total change of scenery, it works wonders!
OK, it's that time of year again. Who is up for the challenge of running 2020 miles in 2020?
So far, I have myself, double5 and winnet signed up.
It's a leap year so that will make the target daily mileage 5.52 miles, or 38.63 miles per 7 day period.
As for previous years, reporting day is...
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...
Do you want to motivate yourself by starting your own streak?
Maybe do at least one long run every month? Or one race? Or at least one 1h run? Maybe a certain goal-time for a given distance? Something else? :P
Post your progress here.
Last month I decided to try and run at least a sub 20:00...
