Dance like noone is watching

Sleep like you havent a care in the world

and train as though for a marathon you never run.

10 1/2 miles run as the sun went down.

9 tough miles tonight...phew!

26/06/2012 at 22:57

I see you mabel40.

There you are at number 28.

I may not run tomorrow so if you would be so kind as to do say 4 miles tomorrow you can have my number 26 spot;)

Ha! Very observant. I plan a 5 mile recovery..they don't always happen tho! Busy day tomorrow..... Enjoy the rest if you don't run, we can fight it out on Thursday

Stephen, that made me smile.

Yes my recovery runs dont much happen either. I either dont run or just run at easy pace but for fewer miles. I pride myself on being such a stickler for formal training too

Look at poor Tikka a whole lot of Fetchies in front of her ( I dont know why i assume your female

I think i will stay down here where its safe

I'm very much up for continuing into July and August as I'm training for a marathon in Sept. 

So am I, so happy to continue. 

Not sure what this week's mileage will be as I'm hoping / trying to make up for missing last week.

7.77 for me this morning. Not too bad as it included some hill repeats. Like Tikka, I'm not training for a marathon this autumn, so my mileage won't hit some of your dizzy heights this summer, and will drop from this month's mileage due to work and family commitments over the next few months.

p.s. I also enjoyed the little contribution from SEF above

Oh ... and I hit my mileage target for the month

Had to cut my planned 15 short today due to Mrs JD's work commitments and me needing to do the nursery run, so swapped schedule with Friday and just did the 12.01m this afternoon. Wasn't sorry though as it was tough going in the 22 degrees (according to my car) heat!!

Very muggy day for running, even at 5.30 this morning. Too much work to do a double session - although check me out skiving on here - so will try and get a few in tomorrow again. Definitely no double tomorrow as Thursday night is officially wine night when I'm on the marathon wagon next week. Those pesky fetchies are indoctrinated into logging their mileage, they're not better than us...

Yippee . - I have just exceeded my monthly target of 200 miles, thanks to doing 7.5 muggy miles this morning, and 10 even muggier miles tonight.

I suspect I may have lost half my body weight in sweat, so am rehydrating with Birra Moretti whilst watching Italy beat ze germans

10 'muggy' miles tonight 

28/06/2012 at 21:15

5.05 am and 6m pm takes me up to no 2  at the mo

KateF, I agree - there are definitely people in the RW team clocking up the miles (I've seen posts from them elsewhere on the site to this effect) but they're not logging their runs on the spreadsheet.  

Everywhere I go I hear people moaning about what an awful summer we're having but I can't remember the last run I had when I wasn't struggling with the heat and humidity.  It was hotter than a hot day in hell out there tonight, even at 8pm.

Hi all

Have just updated my log with my last 2 runs, they were only 2.50 and 3.04 miles but I have reached my taget of 90 for the month. I've only run 3 times in the last 10 days as I was tapering before last Sunday's North Downs 30k and recovering afterwards!

29/06/2012 at 08:49

well done to YP and Gary F on reaching their monthly targets!

29/06/2012 at 10:32

6.2M race done last night, and 4M recovery run this morning. Beaten my monthly target and got under 1 hour last night which was my target so VERY pleased with that.

Tikka & SEF - I'm not competitive really, but having entered something like this, surely you should see it through to the end???!!

29/06/2012 at 11:58

Hi all,

Running a 24 hour challenge at the weekend, I'm hoping I can still log whatever milage I do before midnight tomorrow, on Sunday?

If this continues into July I should also have a good start to the month!

Good news Charlotte... I am sweeping part of the SDW course so will get a few miles in on Saturday too RW come back on the last day!? haha... that would be nice!
