You guys made me question my maths so I went back to the run log for a detailed check. I'm actually at 2068 so far, and 40 per week for the next 3 should give me an average of 42 per week this year. On a par with Birch is good enough for me.
Badbark, I'm both impressed and scared- I wonder how many years you can sustain that level of mileage- it would certainly finish me off?
It looks like we have a similar mara plan Lorenzo. I have a 5 mile beach race this weekend and a final 10k in December (with Junior OO). Then I'll start cranking it up in the New Year.
I managed an XC at the weekend but nothing to shout about. Scraped a 40 mile week so looks like 2000 miles is unlikely this year. I was also crowned marathon champ at the club awards- 3rd and last time I'm quite sure.
Did I hear one of us on the podium for marathon talk?
