The end of another month.Good challenge. It really encouraged me to run more miles than I would otherwise have done. To reach my target, I had to go for a short run after my long day at work!

Yeah we won!

So do we get the right to all the Fetchie maidens that came of age this July and first pick of the late Summer apples?

What?! No you shut up!

No its not "primitive" and "a little sexist" anyways I like apples.

Dont matter anyway dont fancy any of 'em.

I like Emmy Bug cos she got go faster legs and they say she once bedeviled a pig up near the top field using nothing but a pair of Asics and a sweaty sock!

thank you Bruce

Hi Bruce - do you know if we're continuing this? do we need to get our liason officer (KK) to go between both camps?

Well done everyone on some cracking runs and mileage! I did my highest mileage month and can safely say - this was the reason.... that and marathon training

@Stephen - you promised you wouldnt tell anyone about the pig incident

Just dropping in from t'other side (I don't visit here very often these days) so say well done to team RW for winning the July challenge - I guess that makes it one all with everything to play for.

Obviously some great running from everybody - on both sides - near the top of the leaderboard but congratulations due also to anybody who has managed to stretch themselves just a little further than they otherwise might.

Now - to make it fair during August - if you lot could just re-recruit all the lower mileage people who disappeared from your team sheet at the end of June, then we'd all appreciate it over on Fetch.  The alternative is that we start looking at the top end of our training league and actively recruit some more of the proper high mileage types.  Ta

Or you could try running more

I'm in for August

22.05m today

02/08/2012 at 14:12

I'm ion for August, planning more miles than last month this month - if all goes to plan (and right now things seem to be going to )

Bruce- In case the Fetchies forget to ask, can you remove Lady Alton's 20m run which is set in the future

Sorted !   (and I've also sorted the fact the Daily Run Average was 2 days out  )


7.1 for me today whilst listening to Sirs Chris, Jason and Phil bringing home the goodies !!

Hi everyone,

Sorry for being a bit lax... it's been rather busy here. I need to update my runs but have had a slower week due to work etc.

Thanks for the update Bruce! How are you getting on, Jason?

03/08/2012 at 11:28

Bruce- well done on the update and the run

Emmy- Knew we could count on you!  All going ok here, thanks Actually, I'm really pleased with progress I seem to be making pace-wise/ weight-wise (they are clearly linked) so far this marathon campaign. 6.5ish this morning, MLR later

03/08/2012 at 11:33

@Jason - I may not be running as far as you; but i'll try I was going to ask - how did you ramp up the frequency to be able to run every day without burning out? Did you start out with smaller runs every day, building up slowly or doing the same mileage but just adding one day at a time?

03/08/2012 at 11:59

Hi all. Having missed the end of the month I'm relieved to hear we triumphed. I've returned from a combination of injury and holiday sluggish and probably carrying a few extra pounds. 2.95 logged this morning, a slow start I know, but hopefully going big this month,

Sorted !   (and I've also sorted the fact the Daily Run Average was 2 days out  )

Thanks Bruce, thought maybe I'd been going mad last month trying to work these out! Cheers for the continued support.

Emmy- I'm fairly sure there's actually an army of Jason clones, otherwise I've never been able to work out how there's possibly enough hours in the day.


03/08/2012 at 19:12

Quiet here...6.23 logged for second run of the day

03/08/2012 at 19:46

Emmy- I started with following the P&D 70-80m plan and then just switched to the 80+ 6 months later. I don't run this many miles all year though!

6.4m recovery run for me this morning and 14.01m this evening in 1.39.17 finished off with a 0.5m warm down for a total of 21.02

We're ahead at the mo
