I've not run (or anything else really) since about August so maybe I ought to sign up to this to try and get myself out there again 

Go on, get in there

I would sign up but the way i read it, its more about just doing 100% of what you initially say you are going to do, if it was a total distance thing i would be in as i got a few ultras in feb and march but i dont think it would help the team really - unless i said i was only going to run 35 mile a week and actually did 70

It's about doing the number of runs per wek that you say you're going to do.

January is just that, 4 x weeks of n number of runs per week

February is the same as January but you also specify how far your longest run is going to be and hitting that mileage during that 4 week period.

March is maintaing January's runs per week and Februarys distance but also targetting a time for a race/ or distance. This one is tricky because you have to be pretty precise and are quite heavily penalised (points wise) if you over/under estimate your pace ability.

Ah I see. You get penalized for under estimates as well, that makes sense rather than just putting a low number to start with

Can anyone join?  I'm registered in Jantastic, but not in a team 

01/01/2013 at 14:20

Yeah, get on board, look for PSOF in the team list.

01/01/2013 at 14:28

Cheers - I've joined

Bump. Need 6 more to make a large team
02/01/2013 at 14:31

Just remember that it's not just for January

There's Feb and March

Oooh I joined yesterday under the tri club team.....hadn't been on here to see this thread. Can I join two teams

Is ther ea downside for the team for someone signng up and then pulling out? I want to get back to running but haven't run for about 6 weeks as I had some achilles pain.

Happy to sign up to 3 runs a week in Jan but if it starts to hurt again I won't continue.
