Dr PhFleecyD
I’m doing the 2 hour one with FM, Dipps, should be good
I have done a ridiculous amount of exercise the last few days, some of it car induced as it got a mystery fault and the dealer is 8 miles away. Every bit of me hurts now! Quite a lot of tough classes too. Maybe yoga tomorrow

Evening everyone! Hello HellsBells - I can say with confidence this really is the nicest thread on Fetch (even though I’m a newbie) They are all lovely!

I’m feeling somewhat pleased with myself having hit 600 today.

The wasp sting two weeks ago to my calf is still giving grief, so that I can't run. Sorry for the wasp, but more sorry for me ☹️

About This Thread

Maintained by Serendippily
Welcome to the 700 miles in 2020 thread, everybody welcome. The thread motto is:
'700 miles is neither necessary nor sufficient'

At normal times: All you have to do is run about 1.91 miles per day or 13.46 miles per week or 58.33 miles per month and take a picture when you get to 700 miles. Extra points for bins :-) And if you go under or over 700 miles nobody will mind.

Join in the chat on the friendliest thread around - all things discussed, sometimes even running.

Group link is here:

Mileage league for 700 here fetcheveryone.com/training-mileagetargets-filtered.php?category=RUN&mileage=700 Personal league tables and a link to set or amend run, swim, walk and cycle targets here:

If you do reach 700 miles before the end of the year, please reset your targets, so others can keep moving up the table :-)

Send an fmail to Serendippily if you want any races highlighted here and we will all cheer you on:
