WILL UPDATE NEXT WEEK ๐Ÿ˜Š Letโ€™s run round the Moon!! ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿคฉ 3,999 miles as of the end of the week b4 last - well over halfway now!!

Can you hear me Major Tom?? Sorry, got a bit behind here, been running ๐Ÿ˜Š

How's everyone doing with their long runs so far? Let me know and I'll update this post with more data... watch this SPACE!!!! ๐Ÿคฉ

โ˜… UPDATE: Added a few missing names! Apologies, Sutsha ๐Ÿ™„

โ˜… UPDATE 2: So far I've counted a total of 2,745 miles, which is about 40% of the Moon's circumference. One last big push then!! ๐Ÿ˜

โ˜… UPDATE 3: 3,353 miles and counting!! That's almost halfway, folks ๐Ÿ˜Š

โ˜… UPDATE 4: We're now up to 3,457 miles, which is almost 51% of the way round!!!

โ˜… UPDATE 5: Now at 59% of the way round - although I must add this is not including any of this week's data, and I reckon we must be way over 60% by now!!!

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

No, I have been using RunKeeper and didn't want to change and lose my activities. I am on Strava though but inactive at the mo. :) :)

Sorry I know I'm a bit thick technically; how do I join the group on Strava :)

strava.com/clubs/nhsrunroun...

There should be a 'Join' button to hit.

It's not mandatory though! I'm just trying to figure out who's who on there so I don't start duplicating numbers ๐Ÿ˜Š

I am not going to be able to hit target... Managed 32 miles but I have sprained my ankle tripping over a root, so been on the since last week. Doing a short run (3km) tomorrow now the swelling has gone down, then a longer run tomorrow (5km) before the race on Saturday.

Reply

Ouch! Sorry to see that :( Take care!!

Reply

Only a minor sprain... Stupid balance problems mean I am more likely to go over badly as when I try to correct a trip, I over correct and go both ways instead. Have been given balance exercises to help but its caused by hearing loss. Ah well... Could be worse :)

hit 187 miles (~300km!!!) since the 31st of July today, so I am very close to my target. And actually I thought the challenge finished on the 31st of August, so I might get a few extra miles until the second :)

all good here on the moon (still no cheese though, which is good for me given my lactose intolerance, but all those stories about the fact that the moon is made by cheese must be invented then... so funny to read though...)

enjoy your last few days on the moon then :)

I almost managed the 40' in the 10K yesterday (40'16''). I know I have it in me, but I need to get more train for running in pain (last 3 k). Report to follow as soon as I have some time :)
