Evening all, I have been looking around the forum and I can't see a thread for this distance. Obviously it would be more sensible to start in the New Year, rather than at Easter, but hey, better late than never.

I started running last year, and felt that 1000 miles is just a WEE bit too far, so went for the 800 miles instead. At this point I am behind. Some of this is due to injury (none of it running related - one was an over enthusiastic teenage son bruising my ribs, the other from trying to "pop" up on a surf board and popping my knee!) and some due to laziness. I have 35.7 miles to make up by the end of the year. Going from my experience in December last year I'm probably better aiming for somewhere mid November to make sure I get there.
If anyone with the same goal fancies sharing run experiences please feel free!
