Badgers, Deer, Stags, Great Big birds of Prey and horses =10 points ( excluding Police Horses, so no running through riots)

Foxes , Rabbits, Hares =8 points (Foxes with actual white bit on tail like in the books =10 points)

Swans, Heron, Storks Pelicans, Parrots, exotic birds generally = 5 points

Pigeons, magpies, any of the Corvus famalia= 1 point each ( if in a flock count as =2 points)

No running through Zoo's, Wild Life parks etc just to get the pointage.

Off you go!

Is it a massive oversight of with all those exotic animals mentioned I can't believe you guys didn't see any sheep! Amount I've seen on my runs this year I could probably sleep longer than sleeping beauty if I was keeping count. Do I only score 2 points per field past of them? still about 1 million points

I'm sorry everyone. I will aim to get my ass out the door today/tomorrow to bring up the average

Logged my few miles for yesterday and today (10 in total) Looks like we may be falling behind already

The ultra- fetchies have slung in a lot of big miles over the weekend....

It was Enigma marathon weekend I think... 2 marathons and an ultra or something like that over the weekend.

I have an ultra but not til the end of the month so that will help my mileage. Until then its just training as usual and a bit of a taper.

Thats the way to do it Emmy lets all go out an get lost, boost our mileage 25%  (done this numerous times, not as easy these days though as I know all my local paths so have to travel for some good "lost time")

Lol - I'm glad that you can see the positive side of it  The local council are digging up all of my normal routes over the summer holiday so i'm exploring new routes... it's not all bad as I found a wood today... the only downside was running a little late for work!

There is no such thing as being lost Emmy_bug, its just a different route... Well done on the extra mileage too

The ultra is 100 miles (Well, 104 I think is the actual course length. I will ofcourse be accurate for the sake of the challenge here!) so will make a nice difference to my mileage.

6.23 done. Was down for 200m repeats but found the track full of school kids so switched today and tomorrows runs around.

11/07/2012 at 10:56

8.95m last night, so soaked that took ofrf t-shirt for the last mile as I figured this would reduce my chance of catching a cold

11/07/2012 at 11:11

I'll be heading out tonight with a map, a guide and a compass to make sure that I stay on the straight and narrow

11/07/2012 at 12:07

haha, don't forget the flares

11/07/2012 at 12:10

and emergency food?

11/07/2012 at 15:13

I was so inspired by Emmy's approach that I did the same last night. I did an extra few miles running around a dark, dank, extremely muddy wood. The GPS trace is quite amusing, I get within spitting distance of an exit and then turn around and head as far as possible from any exit. Brilliant. 

I also picked up a stowaway tick who was happy to take the free lift back to my place, delighted to share the shower with me, but then decided that my leg and blood wasn't quite good enough for it and crawled off, ungrateful git So I smashed him with a golf ball .... any points for ticks?

11/07/2012 at 18:08

4.97. 200m repeats, was never going to add up to much even with wu&cd.

11/07/2012 at 18:51

14 added, total for yeterday's and today's mileage.

Chimpster,good job it crawled off of its own accord.They're a bit of a pain to get out sometimes!!

11/07/2012 at 19:47

@Chimpster - that's great! I'm glad I can be so.... 'inspiring'! I can honestly say that I've never had a tick (touch wood!).

I managed 5 and abit miles whilst...um... exploring the local area. Really strange weather today but happy to be out there!

11/07/2012 at 21:47
