I'm just back from a week away at a conference with work, and managed to find plenty of time for running while I was there, so clocked up 100km in the seven days. That's taken me up to 1078km for the year, 938km to go. Passed a few significant milestones (kilometer-stones?!) along the way - 1000km covered, my total for the whole of last year (1002km), half way (1008km), and 1000km to go. Feeling strong and almost back on schedule. Should be back ahead of schedule by the end of the month
938 is a sphenic number (positive integer that is the product of three distinct prime numbers, in this case 2 x 7 x 67)
Blimey DR! Running at 3:30 in the morning! That's keen ;o) Good effort!
So, half way through the year! Back from my lunchtime run, which takes me up to 916km for the year. 1100km to go, 92km behind schedule, but I should be comfortably over 60km for the week again, and it's only going up from there as I'm in week three of an 18 week marathon schedule.

Hi all, good to see there's a few of us running Amsterdam. I've found it really helpful in the past to have people to chat to who are training for the same event.
My training's going pretty well. I'm roughly following the P&D 18 week, up to 55 miles/week plan, so on week three of that at the moment. I can't always follow it exactly as it has to fit around work and family commitments, but it's a useful guide. I've been doing a hilly run once a week for the past few months, which I really feel like I'm benefiting from in terms of leg strength and avoiding injuries, so trying to carry on with that even though it's not really in the plan.
Amsterdam will be my fifth marathon. First for six years (marathon training doesn't seem to fit in with having small kids!), but I've done a few halves over the last few years.
Hi all. 58km done this week, taking me up to 813km for the year, so 1203km to go. Aiming for 60km next week, so slowly catching up with the schedule. Should break 900km by the end of the month, which would mean I have to average about 42km a week for the rest of the year to reach 2016, which should be doable. Still seriously impressed by the mileage some of you are doing!
