Can you hear me Major Tom?? Sorry, got a bit behind here, been running 😊

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!!!! 🀩

β˜… UPDATE: Added a few missing names! Apologies, Sutsha πŸ™„

β˜… 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!! 😁

β˜… UPDATE 3: 3,353 miles and counting!! That's almost halfway, folks 😊

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

β˜… 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

Better to rest than hit the IC! Also, every K counts and you've still done fantastically considering holiday and injury! Way to go xxx 😁

Are you on the Strava group, btw?

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 :)

roseabi profile image
roseabiPartner in reply to Lorijay

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 😊

My holiday coincided with an injury so I’m afraid I’ve been swimming not running the last two weeksπŸ˜•.

Yes indeed, I ended up doing a few extra miles this month. Not many left on the plan for the rest of this week though πŸ˜€

84 miles so far for August.

You're past your target too - well done! Are you in the Strava group?

andystev profile image
andystev in reply to roseabi

I am, but not all my runs filter through to Strava. And, at the moment, there's at least one session a week that doesn't get tracked.

roseabi profile image
roseabiPartner in reply to andystev

Ah! I thought you were, but as you say the numbers don't match 😊

andystev profile image
andystev in reply to roseabi

Now up to 154 miles since the beginning of August.

I’m close to target with 157.82k (98miles only 2 to go) πŸŒ– so looking good for target - fingers crossed as always

Well done Abi, that’s brilliant 🌝

LittleNell83Half Marathon

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.

roseabi profile image
roseabiPartner in reply to LittleNell83

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

LittleNell83 profile image
LittleNell83Half Marathon in reply to roseabi

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 :)

Got a 5k and a 10k in over the weekend so hit my target. Should be good for another 120k this month as I'm running a half and pacing a friend round the last 15 miles of their ultra!!

Awesome, and wow - enjoy your pacing job!! 😊

marco83 profile image
marco83Marathon

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 :)

Now it's 3 weeks to the Belfast city HM (23rd of September)!!!

At the moment just really tired! I hope to recover well. I missed the 40 by 16 seconds, but I guess I gave everything... I need to find the time to rite a Race report. In the meantime, did we pass mid point around the moon? ;)

have a good week

roseabiPartner in reply to Macmac

That's fabulous, Macmac, well done!!!

Sqkr profile image
SqkrHalf Marathon

My overall total is 66km, which is measly compared to some of you chaps! To be honest though I'm actually surprised I managed that many kms with the persistently quirky calf of doom, so I'm quietly pleased with myself.

roseabi profile image
roseabiPartner in reply to Sqkr

As you should be, well done!!

Are we still running or is it finished now?

My final total was 204.46k or 127.04 miles so I beat my target of 100 miles (and got my Race at Your Pace medal and T for the 100) πŸ˜€. I’m happy!

roseabi profile image
roseabiPartner in reply to AnnieW55

Wow well done!!!

It's looking like we'll carry on - need to sort out the announcement 😁

Endomondo has just told me I ran 107 miles in August. There's about 3 miles a week Endomondo doesn't see, And so far since the end of August (IE on Sunday) I've run a further 9.5 miles. So I'm on something like 131 miles
