I'm in third with my meagre 3.1 miles!!! Hehehe I'll enjoy it for now as I'll be back in 92nd once everyone has joined...

Apologies for not changing it sooner (I was out trying to kill myself at Go Ape, and nearly succeeded!!!) , however months should be rolled over now to July and to update the last bits in June just go to the 'Previous Months' option in the menu and you should be able to update Junes.

Just logged my 15 from Bewl this morning. Had to include some of my warm up in that 15 miles, as the course was apparently short by 20metres(!) due to necessary diversion. Unfortunately, that could be my longest run of the month, but I'm happy with a reasonable start.

Thanks Bruce. It's going to be a low scoring week for me this week as I am going to have to take a day or two off with a marathon looming on Sunday.

Well done everyone for their June efforts, loads of mileage targets bested and overall good totals.

Best month of year for me, nearly 22m up on any other month and keeps me ahead of my previous best mileage year at this stage.

I see I'm already well down in July having got my LSR in Saturday and nothing Sunday. I don't expect July to be so many miles - sorry team - as some of this month will be tapering off towards the Lakeland 50. Before then I plan at leat one real tough 21m. But unfortunately despite the hills and suchlike its only 21m. Can we factor feet ascended descended during runs in future

DE - I havent started this month well either mate... 55 miles Sat which meant 2 miles recovery yesterday! haha Will also be tapering for Lakeland at some point but am going to squeeze 30 miles in this Saturday before I do! Maybe we can form a steady mid league duo as we taper?!

Worst month since I started running. I went on holiday, had loads of routes planned, managed a couple of them and then landed in hospital. I haven't run for over 2 weeks now and not sure when I can next. Seeing my UK doc later so hopefully he'll give me the all clear.

As I *know* I won't get much running in over the school summer hols, should I be removed from the database?? Will my 0 or low miles bring the averages down???

02/07/2012 at 10:50

IKFY - Hope you feel better soon and get the all clear from the docs.

good luck for July - everyone!

Congratulations on your individual & collective miles, RW types  from a FE runner.  It's been good to meet over a productive & enjoyable challenge.

B&T, as long as you don't enter any miles then you will be 'culled' in the sweep after the first week or so we do of those who haven't recorded any for that month (it stops the stats being skewed by no shows) ... but don't worry the cull is only for that month and all your old stuff will still be there.

Hi Bruce, my previous months aren't displaying properly, the mileage form seems to be overlapping (on top of) the select new month menu. Not sure if others are seeing it this way?

02/07/2012 at 19:49

2 recovery plods today to give me 11.93m and take me top of the shop for a while at least

BUT we're a bit thin on the ground at the moment and the Fetchies are storming....

Tom, you're using Firefox right ? .... I've just looked and it seems to be just not rendering properly in Firefox (IE and Chrome seem to be OK, unless someone can tell me differnet).

I love 'standards' in the browser world !! ... I'll take a look now and see if I can sort it either tonight \ tomorrow.

Sorry about that.

jd, not even a plod for me, and may not get one for the next few days either after a 'Go Ape' zip line incident has left me with my very own Wimbledon tribute .. ie a tennis ball sized ankle !!! (but thankfully its not so painful today so am hoping to be back out in a few days!)

Tom, is that any better ?


02/07/2012 at 22:35

Hi Bruce, yeah, was in Firefox, and all fixed now, thanks.

Standards in browser world seem to be anything but whenever I've looked at web development.

Hope the ankle recovers quickly.

2.95 miles logged. Not much I know, but it's the first official run of mara training, so it will build.

02/07/2012 at 22:50

Bruce- Ouch!! Hope it gets better soon....

Night all- early run in the morning

Going well Jason, TOTP!

Bruce, I repeat JD's "Ouch!", I reckon you should be ok to run when it gets to about golf ball size though

Day 3, better run tonight, letting the side down a bit this month so far  Sunday was my usual rest / "do things other than running or work" day, but I always get a bit "itchy legged" if I have two days in a row off when I can run. I can usually fit running around work, but not yesterday
