Anybody up for a 2014 in 2014 Challenge? I'd love to do 2014 miles but might just settle for 2014 Kilometres (1227 miles).

I've been running slowly for 18 months now and want to step it up a notch in 2014

I'll aim for the 2014 km (1251.4 miles) and see where that takes me - shouldn't be too hard as I'll hit 900 miles this year (16 miles more to go) and didn't exactly go for it (monthly mileage below - could be improved a fair bit I think).

81, 58, 57, 67, 95, 145, 73, 81, 55, 34, 73, 62 miles so far

furlongs for me.

Dave, my monthly totals seem similar to yours though was on my feet much longer being such a slowcoach

Nose Nowt, that's about 250 miles for the year! 

Another goal of mine is to run further each Month than I did in 2013 - Jan should be easy as I only ran 8 miles!

I plan on running 2014km in 2014, 700 to 800km more than I ran in 2013.

I will aim to run 40km average for the year in 2014 so around 2100km, including 50 to 60km average during my marathon training period between March to October. I intend on running 3 marathons again in 2014 like I did in 2013.

Im also planning in completing 2014k and my first marathon (loch Ness) in 2014.

Started running at the beginning of this year and managed to complete 2 halves so may as well set myself a bigger challenge.

RoadWarrior, good luck with the 3 marathons, training for those should see you run a fair few kilometres

jinty, might see you at the start of Loch Ness and my second visit there - got a goal time for it?

Andi, Im thinking sub 5hr for first marathon. Completed the halves in 2:14.

What did you think of the course, Ive been told its a hard one for a first, lots of hills.

What was your time last year and have you done other marathons.

30/12/2013 at 11:43

Hi Jinty, Loch Ness was my first (and only thus far). I did it in 4:55:02 off the back of a 2:13 Half Marathon (Mull). 

I thought the course was ok for me, 2 smallish hills before the 'big one' at mile 18 - not steep but a 2 mile incline. It has a negative incline overall so make sure you include some downhill training into your plan Someone will most likely start a thread about it in a few months so keep your eyes peeled. Plenty of time to find a decent plan for it.

Have decided to join in, kilometre-wise. Could help with motivation!

2008.74k to go, having clocked 5.26k this morning.

03/01/2014 at 13:21

After day 3 I now have 1997.45k to go, so just about on track for the 5.52k average per day.

How often are people going to post their progress?

03/01/2014 at 17:46

Ive covered 9k so far, went for a run last night, thought I would probably post my weekly results.

Thanks for the info Andi, nearer the time I will be looking for lots of help and advice.

On track sounds good alehouse and guess peeps will post as and when or weekly like jinty says? Doesn't look like the thread is taking off

For the record I've got 1993.37 miles to go now


04/01/2014 at 19:53

Ive still got 2000k to cover, 14k done so far.

There is a Facebook challenge the same if anyone is interested.


04/01/2014 at 22:18

got the link Jinty? a quick search didn't find it

13.1 slow miles today so (just) 1980.26 to go 

04/01/2014 at 23:19

Your insane  

ok well umm err km is actually what I reckon I needed to do, at least 1200m which is only 60km short so... I'm in for km's

05/01/2014 at 12:52

Okay, lets give this a go! I'm going to try and achieve 2014 miles and will update on a weekly basis.

37 miles done in first 5 days - 1977 to go...

Have holiday that will mean I won't run for most of May, so need to look at building up a reasonable buffer before then!

I'd like join in though haven't run this year yet due to illness. I'll go for km's though there seems to be a difference of opinion on how many miles that is; I'm going to round it to even 1252 miles.

0/1252 mi

07/01/2014 at 18:20

Mikasa, no confusion - I was wrong lol so yes it's 1251.4

As Chewie mentions, holiday, sickness and taper/recovery makes this a little harder than first thought so yup, need to build up some miles in the olde bank!

1956 miles left  for me as of today

07/01/2014 at 20:20

32k covered so far.

Andi McGill 2 im not sure how to post a link lol
