I have no idea, it's really bizarre and the first time I've seen it here. 英里 is miles and I was staring at it for ages as the 英 is used in the word for "the UK" and also the words brave and hero... So when I saw it my first thought was "hero km?? wtf?" before I worked it out. Anyway I don't think I'm going to be much of a hero, dragging myself around a mountain in the rain for 20 anything.
Cockbain's accumulator did this in May and is doing so again in July... in Miles though.
Hero KM is quite a a cool name for a mile
thats totally bonkers, in any order whatsoever. bravo @hats if you get through that
I didn't realise they all had to be continuous - I thought it was daily mileage...
We've set the slightly arbitrary rule that runs 15km and under have to be done in one go, 16km+ days can be daily mileage. I've got a wall chart and stickers (because I am a child).
If you complete it you get a free physio session; catch is that it's in Shanghai...
1st - 15th - single runs
16th - 31st daily mileage
But in the order 1 > 31?
1km-15km single runs
16km-31km daily mileage
Any order you like! It's already the 1st here and I can't sleep so I just did 6km.
Some hard lessons learned this afternoon:
-Use the lap button, so you know exactly where warm-up ended and run started
-When you're aiming for a time that's a huge pb, don't run 10secs/km faster than that time, you'll blow up
Still a 40 secs pb though!
Is that this one?
I bought from amazon though - the wiggle ones don't seen to have sizes
I've got a Petzl Tikka which I bought for running in quite literal pitch darkness in Colorado, which it handled well. My hands, less so, as it was minus ten degrees and I'd only bought thin gloves.
So that would mean you’re not running a 6km again (although you could run a 6km + another distance over 10km another time)?
Think I might need a month planner to make sure I don’t double up!
I like the idea of going 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc but with a house move at the end of the month that’s asking for trouble.
Exactly, 6km is done and dusted - and yes, I have both a month planner and a spreadsheet to make sure I tick all the distances off. Running it in order would have been "fun" but not feasible with work and events already booked in.
I'll cheer you on from the sidelines if you don't mind. Good luck! :)
My exercise streak (mainly running, some cycling, bit of indoor rowing just before lock-down) is going strong with 112 days and counting. June brought up some other nice stats; highest mileage month for the year and highest June mileage ever (239) and 1,001 miles year-to-date.
I did one of my stock favourite long tempo runs last night, using breathing as a guide to pace, i.e. 2/2 - breathe in 2 steps, breathe out 2 steps. Any harder and I'm only breathing out for one step. No pace display on the Garmin. I know breathing is an individual thing but for me this gives me a rough guide to ~marathon effort, and it stops me getting too carried away or wasted from a session. Still hard work mind, but I was happy to see 5:50/m for 9 miles following 1 mile warm-up on an undulating route. Shame there aren't any marathons to run anywhere.
Edited post asking for advice on HRM as I've just bought one.
Nice one, will check out.
^ @hats that's an insane commitment. Keep us updated Id like to read about how you are doing, but obviously have no wish to join in.
Did a little 7km loop over ally pally on Monday, and just got around to review my run. A bit slower than I had hoped at 5:13m/km. But the real shocker is my heart rate, usually it operates between 155bpm and 168bpm on a run like that, it registered several minutes at 197bpm! Im hoping its an error as its only a Wrist monitor.
Since starting regular running, my breathing has got better, Im running further, and im less tired. Im quite pleased with the progress, however Im losing quite a lot of explosive pace, different excercise etc. I might repeat my sprint/jog lampost game just to try to keep some of the higher pace work in there.
realised that it's 450km over the month
realised that it's 450km over the month
I made a spreadsheet earlier and its 496km ;')
12 down 484 to go
What can I say, I didn't go to school for maths!
Atta boy! Do you have Strava or anything so I can give you meaningless kudos?
No spreadsheet required...
Imagine a triangle that's got rows of 1, 2, 3, 4 items:-
o o o
o o o o
Now imagine another triangle upside down that "fits" on top,
o x x x x
o o x x x
o o o x x
o o o o x
This makes a rectangle of 4 x 5
So to add up 1,2,3,4 you can do 4 * (4+1) / 2 = 4 * 5 / 2 = 10.
In general that's n * (n+1) /2
So for 31 you get 31 * 32 / 2 = 496km.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
