It would be best if everyone could make one post at the end of the week and break their running total down by each day of the week.

Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit .. what do you want, blood!?!? :wink: You must love filling in that nice spreadsheet gms :-)

Only joking.... here you go ... I think you want it in km - that right?

17/4 Sat 10m 16km (Sat .. first day)
20/4 Tue 7.5m 12km
21/4 Wed 4m 6.5km
22/4 Thur 7.5m 12km
24/4 Sat 11.5m 18.5km

and if it's OK .. now I'll do the normal week (mon - sun) to help reduce brain power which is running low (especially after conversions!)

BTW Aflicki - events booked in are mostly triathlons, but have an ultra or 2, some long sportive bike rides and general fun & games :-) How about everyone else?

No blood, just sweat :) Km or miles either way. I complained that I couldn't covert miles to km at 4:30am so Cleetus made the spreadsheet for either!

I have posted a plot of the 1st weeks daily kms in the first post in this thread. I find the colours pretty hard to differentiate at this point, but then I am red-green colour blind so hopefully they are all separate colours! I will get around to adding a cumulative kms, days run, and metres gained too. Let me know if the plots would be more useful somewhere else.

my own first week was pretty bad! but I expected that.... :(

no worries! If you can post the three run details, we can stick those in.

TMH reporting in...

04/18: 6km run, untimed, with dog.
04/19: 4.52km run, untimed, with backpack (work to home).
04/20: 5.23km/3.26mi approx run, 31mins, with backpack (work to home).
04/21: 5.23km/3.26mi approx run, 31mins, with backpack (work to home).
04/22: 5.23km/3.26mi approx run, 31mins30secs, with backpack (work to home).
04/23: 2km approx run, easy 15min run whilst out-of-town for work.
04/24: 9.5km trail run with another plus dog.

...pretty sucky due to work demands. First week has made me realise I need to find headlights (somewhere at home), so I don't get caught out on the trails in the dark!

awesome, plot and spreadsheet updated for both of you.

I had originally intended to track hours run too, but what does everybody think? It's a bit of extra work, but it might be interesting in the cumulative, eh?

For me, anyway, am in two minds about timed runs - have been enjoying weekend runs without a watch of late. Lol, also had a near face-plant last week as a result of trying to see my time in the dark, and not looking where I was heading.

Found my goal race but the only problem is it is in October. I think we should extend this to a 1000 day challenge!!
Well, the other problem would be I have to make it through the lottery.

Nooo. At least for me it is a way to handle stress. After I run so many miles, I'm toooooo tired to let anything bother me.
Monday-8 miles easy
Tuesday-6 miles with hill repeats. Think I will start going my club for these next week
Wednesday- 3 miles on treadmill after spin
Thursday- 6.5 miles real easy
Friday- 5 miles speed workout on track
saturday- 10 mile group run

now to wait until next week to see if I make it through the lottery
