    8km (5miles) today
    Usually I do cycling for my cardio workout, but I hate cycling when it's dark outside. Or wet. Or cold :lol:
    For some reason I don't seem to be as whiny about running, and I enjoy it :) So I think I've found my winter alternative

    Will we get 2500 before next year?


    3880 km / 2411mi

    3 Miles

    2411 Miles (Because flo added Km instead of miles)

    I think we can get another 89 Miles in the next 18 days, I'm aiming to put up another 27 Miles for this year (3 Miles every second day).

    Alright I have had to do some math and open the calendar to see what I have done since my last post in August, sorry for not updating!!
    Racing and training on the bike has taken all my time.

    So 19 weeks with three runs of 8-10K each so times 9 as an average is 513K. This is conservative as there were some longer runs but I didn't record them on GPS as my running watch broke.

    So we are at 4,393K or 2,729 miles!!
    We hit our goal before the end of the year!!

    Congratulations to all of us!
    Make running a part of life, even if you stop for a bit come back its not going to judge you. If you find the enjoyment in it you will have a treat every run for the rest of you life!

    3 Miles today, beat my 3 mile time by 1:10 today, not sure what pushed me so much, it was the first time running with my music in today for the first time in about a month so it could definitely be that.

    2738 Miles

    Tooks 482 Days (5.5 Miles/Day average) to get to 2500 ; next goal, 5000 miles?

    Another 3 miles, meant to be my rest day but it's my day off and I was bored :lol:

    2747 Miles

    My legs are starting to tone up a bit, and I've been doing heaps of body weight exercises as well so my stomachs starting to get less flabby.

    I'm In as I have some winter off bike training to prep for my bike training racing starting in March.

    We have to raise the stakes though, with the holidays, vacations and all that extra eating its a good time to set a goal or the goal a bit higher.
    I'm thinking time not longer distance, April 1st should be the goal date and distance should be based on personal goals.

    Let's take a day and figure out our number in total distance that we can get done for that date. After a run we minus the distance from total and ad to the ongoing count.

    Keep in real though, no everyday runs, no long distance to start, build by 10% a week on your longest run! get real shoes!!! And most important give the weather a big middle finger and run in the cold and wet with the right gear of course.

    Happy to help set up programs for you guys and assist with shoes or whatever you need, send me a pm to keep us on track.

    my goal for now is 3 miles in 18 minutes, I'm sitting at ~20 at the moment, before my break I hit my goal of 10km in <60 minutes (59.14).

    You might not remember but when I started running you and impact guided me a bit, and I went from running 2km to begin with to 6km in almost the same time :lol:
