Happy New Year all.

Very delicate today. Managed 1 mile around the block!

So for me- 1 Down. 999 to go

Hello! I won't be starting till tomorrow too hungover today

Freshprincess Mon 01-Jan-18 10:58:28

Checking in. Kicked mine off with a NYD Park Run. Only 997 miles to go.
Going to spend my afternoon booking myself onto some races, strike while the iron is hot and all that.

If it’s ok, I’d love to join. Hoping this will make me more accountable and less lazy. 🙄Really need to get active again. Changed jobs in 2017 for one with a significant commute and haven’t figured out how to get proper walks and runs into the new routine. 🤔

Feel free to join shoop - Just log your distance

you have more energy than me fresh

Bit wish I had done the same! Feel very ropy!!!

I'm in. 1000k challenge (miles just not doable for me).

Kicked off with Parkrun this morning 5 down 995 to go

Looking forward to seeing everyone's progress.

I’m in! Kicked off my 1000km running challenge with a local 10k race, so 1%completed...

Undercoverbanana Mon 01-Jan-18 16:57:35

I'm going for 100miles a month running. Should be doable if I stay uninjured. Can't do more than 17 in a day though - foot injuries galore. Never survived marathon training despite my best efforts. 9 done today.

pinkginanyone Mon 01-Jan-18 17:05:05

1000kms for me.

I only managed 2kms today, didn’t get of to a good start.

Good luck everyone. 🏃🏽‍♀️

Pinkponiesrock Mon 01-Jan-18 19:51:37

I did Parkrun today too, some people did 2 today as ours didn’t start until 11 but I wasn’t that keen!
Got 5 10k and a couple of half’s lined up for 2018 so hopefully that’ll keep me focused 🤓

LoveVelo Mon 01-Jan-18 20:07:50

6.3 miles for me this afternoon, very slow pace mind! I'm using the strava 1000 miles club to log with as well.

SokokeCat Mon 01-Jan-18 20:41:28

Parkrun for me this morning (995km to go) and 11 miles on the bike (989 miles left).
I also signed up for the Virtual Runner 1000km run challenge...medal looks nice!

ShoopShoop Mon 01-Jan-18 20:51:30

4.8km walk for me today....annoying that I didn't quite get to 5km on my route 🙄

ladymelbourne1926 Mon 01-Jan-18 20:53:38

Checking in, no miles for me today but aiming to do better tomorrow

winkywinkybumbum Mon 01-Jan-18 22:05:07

My total for today was 6.5 miles but 3 of those was dedicated walking rather than just movement recorded. Looking forward to having a go at this challenge.

atomicnotsoblonde Mon 01-Jan-18 22:06:36

I'm in for 1000k. Starting tomorrow as my new treadmill arrives grin fingers crossed we can build it!!! confused

I will require repeated kicks up arse!

Is there a group on an app or are we just recording it here?

Tiredemma Mon 01-Jan-18 22:30:23

Some great starts here!! Very motivating!

Is there a group on an app or are we just recording it here?

Im just recording on here but I believe some are on Strava?

TuftedLadyGrotto Mon 01-Jan-18 22:32:33

I'm in. Started with two parkruns today, one at 9am and one at 10.30. So that's 6.2 miles done 994 to go.

Pinkponiesrock Tue 02-Jan-18 09:24:11

Strava automatically keeps a tally of your years total, and makes you a nice little video at the end of year grin
Strava will also add up all the bits of miles so you’ll gain a few over the year, tactical thinking going on wink
I did just over 5 this morning, early morning frosty headtorch run with my friend and the dog. It was lovely to be out early on a holiday as the roads were so quiet, didn’t meet a single car.
So that’s 8 miles done so far

Pinkponiesrock Tue 02-Jan-18 09:27:06

If anyone is up for it we could follow each other on Strava, give a bit of encouraging kudos.

ShoopShoop Tue 02-Jan-18 13:48:13

Thanks for the Strava tip. Downloaded the app and tracked my lunchtime walk - 2.4km.

I'm going to try and figure out how to manually add the walk I did yesterday.

Hoping to persuade DH to go for a walk with me later - taking advantage of DD being at MIL's for a couple of days!

BitOutOfPractice Tue 02-Jan-18 14:23:45

Shoop I use an app (free) called Strides and I just log every run in there and it adds it on.

5km run, 745km to go

BitOutOfPractice Tue 02-Jan-18 14:24:26

Just to add it's a great app for tracking all sorts of goals - weight, habits, targets etc

Fourfantasticfrogs Tue 02-Jan-18 15:36:13

I'm in. parkrun yesterday so 995 to go. Also on Strava. Only managed 314miles running in 2017 but hoping by logging walks too I can get close to 1000!
Good luck everyone

shoop to manually add on strava go to the cross on the top left hand corner of your feed and it’ll give you the option to manually add your distance.
