20 miles or more?

Posted: 10/02/2016 at 18:52

Is there also a time factor to consider? I'm sure I've read somewhere that there is not much benefit after 3 hours running. As a slower runner 20 miles is going to take me between 3:40 and 4 hours and if I ran over that I'd be out for even longer!

15.55 miles done yesterday in the wind a sleet. Longest run since 2011, and most horrible run in a while! I was very tempted to bail at one point if I saw a bus going in the same direction!

112.67 YTD

How to prevent chafing?

Bodyglide is great. I get chafing from my bra on long runs if I forget to put it on. No problems when I remember to use it!

Agree stylish about it being warm. Left house with headband, gloves, jacket ended up losing them all and just running in a t-shirt. What a difference a week makes!

Cat back week, but 11.5 brings me to 85.8mi for the YTD.

I've alreadt done more miles than I did in the whole of January 2015!

markmywords if you use Excel, this formula will daily update with how many miles you should be up to for a target of 1000 miles for the year. It calcualtes 49.18 for today (18/01).

Don't worry Harmander - you've given me an idea for yet another spreadsheet... I think I'll plot my actual mileage alongside the theoretical required mileage to achieve the goal - that way I can see if I really am "ahead of the curve".


I have something similar - I have a projected total for the year (based on actual milage to that point) and the current difference in mileage (actual milage to todays date - required milage to achieve goal). 


Harmandar - don't retreat into your shell! When I commented I wasn't trying to tell you off, I was trying to say even to people even if you do fall behind, these threads are still worth following. Last year I was behind target from the start and never caught up. But following last year's thread got me my highest annual milage.

13 miles done. More slushy that icy thankfully.
YTD 64.7

Agree people shouldn't worry about other people's mileage. It's still good to keep logging the mileage and watching the thread even if you do fall behind.

12 slow miles brings me to 39.9 for YTD. That's 14 miles further than this time last year! Hoping that getting in the miles early means I'll make 1000 miles for 2016. Last year I just got behind, then further behind (and ended up with 900 mi)

How do you target a race, when you think a pb is definitely off the cards?

Am trying to decide how to approach HM on Sunday, so thought I'd see how others usually approach this...
