Anyone Want to start 2012 with Run Focus challenge?

Similar to the recent Challenges

Basic parameters:

#1 - 50% mileage bonus for races , if you race a 10K you can enter 15k in your log, or 1.5 sessions. Posting race pix or RR (race report) on thread is encouraged .
#2 - You chose your GOAL : mileage/time/days of running . This is resolution season Dont be too ambitious and get sick or injured.
#3 - if going with mileage/time limit we suggest a 10% increase from the previous month's
run total max. Use your best judgement . It is a run challenge, but we want everyone to be able to keep training all winter long with no overuse injuries
#4 - The total will be percentage of goal met since we have no other options available besides
distance
#5 - Team bantering is expected and could be rewarded with bonuses - we will most likely keep it
to one thread instead of teams, unless the majority decides in favor of team threads
#6 - We will run through the Google Documents as usual for challenges - same log in and
password as previous challenges
#7 - Your logs must be viewable and you need to check in once a week or so.
#8 - To be fair to your team members If life takes over and you need to drop out let us know .

I would like to join the challenge! What do I need to do? How do access the google logs? This is my 1st challenge so sorry for the basic questions! I am going to start increasing my mileage for the spring HM, goal for month will be 100 miles! Day 1 is in the books, ran the world race for hope 5K, finishing time was 25:20! Not bad considering the last 1.5 was directly into a 40mph head wind! 96.5 miles left!

I'll do another round.  I think I'll place my goad at 110 miles.  Got a 4 miler in this morning, so I'm well on my way

Welcome , in the next few days i will create a spreadsheet and post on this thread the link and how to access it . Just keep track of your progress on your training log and you can enter your data when it is set up. Congrats on your race. Sounds like tough conditions. We reward races with a the 50% bonus . To help make up for taper and downtime afterwards.

I am in! I have 14 run sessions planned for January. I am going by sessions rather than time/distance because I haven't been training regularly for awhile. I am doing the 12 week "Basic Sprint Triathlon Training Plan - HR" to get me back into the swing of things. I hope to complete all of the times/days listed for month 1.

I'm in!  I'm not fully recovered from dislocating my ankle in December.  It hurts a lot but it feels better every day.  I'm going for 80 miles this month.  Can't wait to get to know all of you better.  Cheers! Kiss

Hi!  Welcome to the Challenges!  Paul will get the spreadsheet going soon.  Sounds like you earned the extra milage for running in a headwind like that!  Holy moly!

How do I join? And how does the extra points work with sessions? I'm like Mambo - new to this type of challenge - only done the peach ones before - not very successfully I may add,lol.

Anyway I'm looking to do 18 sessions of wogging - I post them as runs to get total mileage anyway - including the one I got in yesterday on 1/1/2012 since I'm in Australia and about a day ahead of the majority of people here - it's currently 2:21 pm on 1/2/2012 (Jan 2nd 2012)

Hi , no worries , its simple really . Just decide on a realistic goal you are reaching for (like you already have) . Make your intentions public by sharing them here. You will need to make your training log visible to all. Tell us a little bit about yourself , background ... And Update your training log and the Challenge spreadsheet (which should be up today) .
If you race just mark 1.5 sessions instead of 1 in the spreadsheet . And post a picture or tell us about the event how you did and what success or challenges you may have experienced.

We'll split up the participants into teams and race each other to get to 100% both as individuals and as a team .

I am in Los Angeles so about 5 hours ahead of Sydney but the day behind . Where is australia are you situated .

Hi All

My goal is 80 miles running . I have been a triathlete for 7 years. I usually
compete in the clydesdale category.
I have signed up for a half marathon in january at the rose bowl in pasadena.
In the spring i will be getting back to Sprints and Olympic distance triathlons.

Would love to hear your ideas for team names ...

OK, I'm in. Going to have a small goal, in hopes that I won't re-injure myself again.....

I will run wog for 6 sessions.

(Yes, it's small. But it's more than I've done in awhile. And if I hit that goal, I'll increase it.)

Thanks for running this!

- Dee
