Total Running Distance


Hello peeps,

It's a bit quiet at work today, and therefore have spare time on my hand (aka i'm bored ;) ). So what did I decided to do??.....Go through all my run programs and calculate the total km I have run since I started the C25K program. I couldn't believe it... OMG! I already have 125km under my belt.

This got me thinking about Total Running Distances and a question to all out there "How many km/mile's do you think you have covered in total over time"?

Runkeeper keeps count for you so since I started using it in Sept 2013 it has clocked up 1,782km for me! Hard to imagine.

Wow, that's a lot of running! Well done you, has that surprised you?


So far over 770 km and runkeeper hasn't recorded them all plus out for 4-5months with an injury that is over 16 months

Aiming for 750 this year from Jan

Pretty good going there Slow_Rob. That's a long time to be out with an injury, hope you are all good now.

All good now thanks Saul :) I have very different approach now take things much slower and allow myself time to recover :)

To be honest I went at it a bit bonkers hence the injury , would I have done it any different , nope lol but you live and learn and I am in this for long term :)

I can understand where you are coming from. You have this Rocky Balboa feeling in your body!...... "yo Adrian"!!


Not really sure as I have used different methods to record them but I think it's about 1,000 KM. Not yet 2 years since I started...

Nice going Curlygurly.

I started off quite slowly, running twice a week, and it took a while to get my distance up. I do between 22 - 32 KM a week now running every other day, so sometimes 3 times a week, sometimes 4. That said, I am having an extra day off this week, I ran 13 KM on Tuesday, my furthest non stop run. My legs hurt now!

BTW, there's a nice app called Smashrun that crunches all the data for you if you have a Garmin or similar.

13k, well done you! Must have missed that On GC. Really good going 😀 xx

Thanks for the link. 13K, that deserves a medal itself!


831 since last april.

I'm well on target for 1000km this year

saul01Graduate in reply to rmnsuk

Well done, hadn't really thought about a years target.


I bought my Garmin FR15 after graduating C25K at the end of Oct 2014, so all runs are logged from then onwards.

2014 Nov - Dec : 179 km

2015 Jan - Dec : 924 km - Sporadic between april and Nov due to ankle injury.

2016 jan - Now : 174 km - happily running consistantly 3 times per week since Nov 2015.

So grand total of 1277 since graduating C25K end of oct 2014.

I've really taken it steady since Nov 2015 in the hope that I can be injury free during 2016.
