3650 Miles in the Hurtlocker

July 110% Throwdown (Read 825 times)

C-R


    Alright. This thing started in the push up thread but let's give it's own thread.

     

    This is a July stunt. The rules are pretty simple. Take your highest mileage month and get 10% extra (round up - this is the Hurtlocker after all). Awards will be provided in beer by me and there will be more than one category.

     

    You high mileage junkies get a break and we'll say take your highest mileage month over the past 12 months.

     

    So who's in?

     

    And TedsHead - we hope you'll join this stunt. I'm sure a former 2:30 marathoner can run 102 miles in July. That is if I read your log properly. Wink

      Damn, I'd bee in if I wasn't coming off an overuse injury. Can I use the highest monthly mileage since the injury?

       

      This is the Hurtlocker, why did I even ask that? I'm so ashamed and clearly not worthy of this throwdown right now.

        Feeling the growl again

          Alright dude, you know I am not one to back down from a stupid stunt but the 12-month thing and the 2-against-1 December stupidity makes this a bit over the top even for me...

           

          557 miles X 110% = ~613 miles

           

          I started the year with the goal of averaging 300 miles/mo.  So far I have not even hit that once.  300 miles would be >10% over what I have run in any month recenly EXCEPT December.  Good enough?  Given that I just about passed out on a 6 mile run at a humid 77 degrees and this will be July in Indiana, I think that's a decent challenge.

           

          MTA:  Just checked my log.  I have not hit 300 miles in the past year except last December.

            Crappity-crap -- this one is juicy, but June and the front half of July are my down-time before spooling up for Richmond.

            Mayo

              Highest month ever was 175, way back in Sept 2010.  So 110% puts me at 192.5 193. OK, 200

               

              Reasons why I shouldn't even try this.  

               - I haven't hit 100 miles since August of last year. 

               - I'll need to average just under 43 miles per week for the month.  My total for all of June isn't even that high yet..

               - I will be on a plane to Japan & Taiwan on the afternoon of the 27th.  I have no idea what running I'll be able to do while in those countries. 

               

              I'm in. 

               

              MTA:  Damnit, spaniel.  Fine.  200.

                Prince of Fatness

                  Not sure what my highest month ever was.  Around 250 I think.  Well, I am not running 275 miles in July.  I am fat, out of shape, and still dealing with injuries.

                   

                  Spaniel when I come out for the beer mile if you need to get in a 20 miler go ahead.  Just leave me access to the keg.

                    Dude, I'll pad the log on either side.  I'll probably take a vacation day so we can just go around drinking beer.

                        March was 826 - I am not running - 908 in July.

                         

                        Lots of Family vacation ~ It would be a miracle if I get > 500 miles = 60.5%

                         

                        In the spirit of shared Pain - I will try to get 600 - That would be a long shot and stupid.

                          Norm...July ?  That's rugged. Especially for you mid westerners.

                           

                          Are you sure you wouldn't consider changing to 125% of normal beer consumption and matching highest miles month from last 3 years....

                              x 110% = 346.94

                                I am 100% sure I will do 110% of any month so far this year.
