I joined this group originally thinking that this would be a goal of mine for next year (since I only started running on May 18th of this year). However, it looks like there's a very real chance I might be able to catch that bunny by the end of the year. Not going to push myself, just let it happen if it does.
(I have no training plan--I just run as much as feels good.)
Wish me luck!
"When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem." Emil Zatopek
This bunny can be tricky. I was ahead in February - then fell behind after life stuff got in the way; funny how the bunny seems to enjoy absolute immunity against illness, inclement weather conditions, work demands and so on . I used the longer daylight hours of the summer months to get in longer runs and catch up. Hoping to keep up the 20 miles/week during the darker winter months. Looking at your weekly mileage you will definitely catch the bunny well before the end of the year.
Welcome and good luck!
I needed the final day of last year to to beat the Bunny, but I'm pummeling him pretty good right now.
2012 Goals: 1:35-ish Half Mary ->(result 1:38:40). Bust the sub 20 5k barrier (19:54!!!!) and whoop the 1000 mile bunny (ok, bunny, you win).
Thanks to both of you! I passed the 700 mark today, so I'm confident I'm going to catch that pesky rabbit. My optimistic goal is now to get him in November!
