    Damn ice has been brutal but got a few short runs in with yesterday my shortest healthy run of 1km lol, I was frozen solid with all my cold weather gear on.

    My coach has me on three rides a week plus all the bike work and strength training, I will post my totals once it's over 10 k lol!!

    9 Miles this week to rest my calves, I had a run today after 4 days off and they're much better, although I'll add that run at the end of the week.

    about 50 km /31 miles in the last weeks, but I was ill for one week and didn't run then. Last friday me and a friend even managed to to for a run before we started work (felt like in the middle of the night, but you're so full of energy the whole day, I can highly recommend this!)

    I think I'll enter a little competition this month, only 7 km (which is shorter than my typical training runs of 10-14km) but 400 meters in altitude (I normally have 250 meters). The track is evil since it's uphill all the time, and the slope is increasing towards the end :D Any advice concerning preparation?

    Total 4674 km (2904 miles)

    Easy 12 Miles this week, my calves have healed but we've had 2 chefs quit at work so my hours are up in the high 60s.

    2956 (Flos) + 12 =
    2968 Miles.

    I say you can, we've already hit our goal, and this thread is more to keep us motivated and maybe to motivate more people to get into running.



    Anyway, I did my first run today! Was great fun! It was uphill all the time, 7.2 km, the first 4 km with a moderate slope and the last 3 km with a brutal slope. 400 meters in altitude total. But I finished, with a pretty good time (41:50), which isn't bad if if you keep in mind that I only started running in November, and I got into a lot of traffic in the beginning.
    When we were at the peak, we had to get down again, so we ran back to the car.
    So the last two weeks 10+12+12+8+15=57 km

    Last week I did 3*3 miles, and tonight I left for my usual 3.1 miler, got to the end and decided to double back so 6.2 miles. Not too shabby, a lot easier to run at night as opposed to in the middle of the day like I usually do.
