If you are training for an event then this may be a great way to help keep you focussed on getting the miles in!! If you aren't then its a great way to get out there and run a bit more!!!

At the end I will tot up all of our miles to see how far we would have ran round the moon, so lets aim high!!!

42.1k...but there’s more to come (promise)!

Anniemurph

Well... I've done about 43km of my promised 60 so far, so I could go over my Carver K crater, who knows! :D

I should have signed up.πŸ€”πŸ™ˆ

Is it possible retrospectively.πŸ€”

If so my wk1-3 is 22k+42k+22k=86k.

Would love to throw my pennies worth in.πŸ€”

Next 3 weeks plan 3X42k=126k.

Go the moon runners.πŸ’₯πŸŒœπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸŒ›πŸ’₯

Great! With your super streaking and hedge miles we should really make some progress! I’ll add all this to next weeks...

Just trying to work out your goal for the month, is it 210k?

Thank you Julia, that’s greatπŸ‘

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ hedge miles won’t cut it.

The boss is not pleased.πŸ™ˆ

Streaking is a success though, thanks for your knowledge and experience.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘‘

128.44k so far - on course, fingers crossed (100miles/161k)

Wk1 - 41.20

Wk2 - 41.73

Wk3 - 45.51

Next week is lower volume, then up a bit for the last week

I have done a pitiful 23.6km so far πŸ˜‚ Grrrr at my stupid leg! Didn't want to aggravate it and pull it further so have been taking it easy this week. Hopefully tomorrow's 10k won't upset it, and then I'll be back on the long runs again 🀞

Can offer 25.9 miles so far.

Macmac

92km so far this month for me..πŸ™‚

Lordi
LordiMarathon

116 km for me so far.

I'd propose setting my target for the month as 100 miles (160k).

So far I have - wk 1 40.7k

wk2 49.1k

wk3 17.3k (sorry about that - wicked stomach bug once I got home from Dublin - I blame it on the blue sports drink!)

Given this is a 5 week month and I have another 2 40k+ weeks set, I should still be on track!

Will have to watch from the sidelines I'm afraid. Plantar Fascitis has flared up and I am going nowhere soon.

Depending when the last week of the challenge ends but it looks like I should have clocked up 250km by the 2 Sep

Hi all, congrat for the challenge!

I am sooo bad with internet and blogs... I disappeared again... SOOOOORRRRYYYYY!!!!

If you accept my apologies and you still need a contribution to your trip to the moon, I can give you mine:

so far, in August I ran 158.3 miles, + 10 miles on the 31st of July. So my tot would be 168 miles (270.8526 Km --> 271 Km?) for the first 3 weeks.

My objective for the summer was to get at least 40 miles per week, increasing speed with intervals, and so far I managed that almost every week (I missed one on holiday on which I got 31 miles). For August, I guess, my goal would be 160-170 miles. Let's make it 190 miles (~300 Km) for this challenge considering where I am now with only this week to go. This week will be tapering for the 10K of the second...But hopefully I should add 25-30 miles.

let me know if I can join the group (I do not do strava though)

in reply to roseabi

it is the preparation for the city Belfast HM at the end of the month, and my 10 K debut (there is always a first time ;) )on Sunday the second. I am tapering this week, but I should be able to get to my target of 190 miles. I am at 163.4 mi, I should get at 180 by Friday (adding the 10 miles on the 31st of July, it would be 190 :) ).

I cannot see my mileage/ Km in the list you linked in your response. I think I am missing something probably. When is the last day in which we can post the final mileage?

Find it so annoying that strava doesn't give you credit for treadmill running, my Strava stats show 63.9k for August (plus5. 5k on 31st July) but the moon running group only shows the 19k I have done outside 😑😑

That's a pain! But your treadmill running most definitely counts 😊

Ok, that's great. So shall I withdraw from the Strava group and give my stats by commenting on here?

I've just been going through the Strava data and I'm getting 75.3 km for you... ?

Hmm, OK, that seems high now lol, I thought the graph that showed progress was cumulative not weekly doh! Is it from July 31st? To date?

roseabi

in reply to Berksrover

July 30th to August 26th 😊

It only shows the data per week, Monday to Sunday. The previous week's numbers are also available - I've been grabbing a copy of those at the beginning of a new week.

All good then, it does include treadmill runs in those stats, but strava doesn't for monthly running challenges. Thanks for clearing that up πŸ˜πŸ™

Hi ju-ju-! I’ll be at 120k rather than 90 by the end of the month! Im a teacher so have grabbed the chance to do loads of extra running this month. Back to normal after next week 😬

So, we're just about to begin our last week, so I thought I'd update you:

Goal: 100K

So far: 89K

I seem to have fallen off the list but hopefully my contribution will still count!

Hope you other astronauts are all doing well xx
