Emzap: 1819! Nothing happened!! Oh yes it did! The year of Peterloo! Particularly significant in the move from a rural to an urban economy! And unusually I'm ahead of you km-wise!
8 km to finish the month off.
202.km in Total for February
244.5km in Total for January
Total so far 446.7km (277.5 miles) which leaves 1567.3 km
End of month totals: only 122k for the month, taking me to 276.45, i.e. 1737.55K. Behind due to illness, but have still managed to run at least 2k every day this year.
1737: now there's a year nothing happened!
211 miles in Feb brings my ytd total to 444.77
1,569 miles to go and I'm not sure why but in this Year the Duke of Norfolk was arrested!
Steph, ignoring kilometres v miles your ahead of me just
alehouse, good going on the daily runs I gave up mid Jan and have been slacking with 5 days off this year! And, as for 1737, are you forgetting that an earthquake killed 300,000 and destroyed half of Calcutta India?
33.1km Good first run for the month
479.8 Total 1534.2 to go. Of course this is an incredibly important year, and I know that I don't need to mention this to any of you, as obviously we all know this is the year that Parliament accepted The Act of Supremacy, and the Church of England was born.
yup emzap, the lower the number the harder it is to find something on that day so I 'cheat' and do the year now
Steph, great start to the month! and thanks for the factual reminders
63 miles for the week (my best week ever) so that's 471 for ytd and (just) 1543 to go Oh and in 1543 Mary Stuart, at nine months old, is crowned "Queen of Scots" in the central Scottish town of Stirling.
Total for the end of February - 335.5km - that'll do given that my aim for end of the second month is 336km
Now for March's 168km: 18km so far for March (including a disappointingly pedestrian 10k), 150km to go.
Hmm, monthly targets are hard to find interesting facts for! So I'm 335.5km down, 1678.5km. 1678: the year that the composer Vivaldi was born.
Jan: 129m | 207.61kmFeb: 172m | 276.81kmMar: 16.7m | 26.8kmTOT: 317.7m | 511.22km
Past the 25% mark which is pleasing! 1502km to go.
1502 - the year Columbus landed at both Honduras and Costa Rica. 172m in Feb was my highest mileage month ever, by a clear 30 miles - my previous record was set in January!
1502km/10months = 150km a month in order to hit the target. Thats around 93m per month. With March being another high tariff month that average should come down a bit too making it very realistic for me to hopefully exceed the goal. I have no plans to run an autumn marathon or maintain this high milage!!
Well done mattywarr - especially for setting your highest mileage month so emphatically, in the shortest month of the year!
