Groups

Want to find like-minded Fetchies? Whether you're training for a specific half marathon time, or you just like wearing lycra, there's a group here for you. And if there's not, why not create a group? Usual guidelines apply. Silly groups, or those that attract no members will be cleaned. Those with less than 20 members are not listed here, but will appear on individuals' profiles.

Single Fetchies non-running Well why not eh? There are a few of us on here, so I thought I'd start a group. This is not a dating website, it is a running community and we know that.

It's just nice to meet other people who 'get it' about you and your running. Someone who will understand why you are grinning like a maniac because you've knocked 2 seconds off your PB. Someone who understands that even though your feet are covered in blisters AND your toenail has come off AND it's -3 degrees outside you are still going out for a run.

Oh and so we can flirt.

Run The Sum running For Run The Sum challengers. On any given date, you must add up the digits in the date, and run that number of kilometres. So for example, on the 1st, you need only run 1km. On the 9th, you must run 9km. On the 10th, it's 1+0 = 1km again. On the 19th, it's 1+9 = 10km. You get the idea.

Here's the leaderboard:

Run Until You Drop running Please join the league table here - Link (roll over me to see where I go)

Background

The challenge is quite simple. The aim is for each participant to run or walk an increasing amount of miles each day starting with a minimum of 1 mile on the 1st February, a minimum of 2 miles on the 2nd February, a minimum of 3 miles on the 3rd February.. you get the idea.

This challenge will end on the 28th February 2015.

This is a "test" of a potential new race where participants run an extra mile a day forever…or until they drop. For now this is a fixed period challenge that ends on the 28th February.

Q - How do I participate?

You can “join” this event on Facebook and interact with other participants here: target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="Link (roll over me to see where I go)" title="Link (roll over me to see where I go)">Link (roll over me to see where I go)

Please feel free to post your progress during the course of the month.

In addition we have setup a Strava Club if you wish to join here and interact with other Strava members. target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="Link (roll over me to see where I go)" title="Link (roll over me to see where I go)">Link (roll over me to see where I go)

You can also interact with us on twitter @RunUntilYouDrop

It’s then just a “simple” case of running or walking the minimum number of miles each day.

Q - How much is it to take part?

It's free.

Q - Where can I run?

Anywhere you like so long as you have a personal record of it.

Q - Can I do this in kilometres rather than miles?

There’s nothing to stop you doing your own personal challenge. For the purpose of this particular challenge of event though it’s miles I’m afraid.

Q - How shall I log my mileage?

This is a personal honesty based challenge and you are responsible for maintaining your own training log. You can just post of Facebook, use the Fetcheveryone website, Strava, Daily mile or perhaps just plain old pen and paper.

Q - Can I do this on a treadmill?

Yes.

Q - How will you know whether I cheated or not?

We won't. This is an honesty-based challenge where you log your own mileage.

Sure you could cheat but well what’s the point? It’s a personal challenge.

Q - Does each day’s run have to be done all in one go?

No, you just need to cover the minimum distance for that day.

For example you could break down a 26-mile day into a 10-mile morning run, a 1-mile walk to the shops, a 5-mile lunchtime run and then 10 miles in the evening.

Q - How can I fit in that much running each and every day?

Organising the timing of your runs is part of the (fun) challenge.

Q - What if my partner leaves me due to all this running I end up doing?*

We'll fix you up with someone else in the group (*maybe).

Q - Will this be good for my health and fitness?

Running is a healthy activity. The amount of running you should complete will vary depending upon factors such as your experience and current fitness for example.

However “rest days” are important to. Therefore you take part in this event at your own risk. If you are injured, carrying an injury or tired then it may be best to bow out of the challenge.

Can I "catch up" with the mileage if I miss a day?

No. If you do not manage to complete the minimum mileage for that day then you are out of the challenge.

Can I walk?

Yes.

What if I start a run before midnight but finish the run after midnight.

If you start running a mile before midnight which finishes after midnight then you may count that mile for the previous day. Any further miles run as part of that individual run counts for the next day.

For example. Paul starts running a 11.55pm and completes his first mile by 12.05am (after midnight). He then runs another 2 miles finishing at 12.25am. Paul may count the first mile only for the first day and miles 2-3 for the second day.

Q - Will there be prizes/medals/T-shirts?

No prizes as such but we are looking at an option to design a T-Shirt which people can buy after the event (i.e. “Run Until You Drop – Survivor”) if there is sufficient interest.

What do you mean, this is a "test" event?

(James) had this silly idea. He wondered how many days you could go by running an extra mile each day. Could you do 50 miles? 70? 100?

This is potentially an amazing race idea and one that we would may eventually like to organise as a virtual "race" and this challenge is a great way to test the concept and some of the logistics.

Do I have to be UK based?

No. So long as you can record your mileage you can run on the moon if you like.

We even have some interested participants from Wales.

Q - How is it possible to even run that may miles a day?

Easy. This fat bloke managed to do it.

Link (roll over me to see where I go)

Q - How will I know how everyone else is getting on?

As it is a personal challenge, people will be responsible for keeping their own log and tracking their own progress. However, we recognise that people will be interested to see how many people are participating and how they are getting on.

As this is a Facebook based challenge, we will “pin” a new post each day asking people to comment to confirm if they are still “in” the challenge. Hopefully this will give participants an idea of how many people are still “in” the challenge.

IF YOU JOIN PLEASE SEND YOUR HOME ADDRESS TO ME geordiegirl so I can pass on your details to your Secret Santa - thanks

Its officially here..... come on elves join the group if you wish you take part!!!

Ho Ho Ho

As previous years please state if you are
a) happy to receive anything - and be prepared for what that may be
or
b) if you would like your SS to be a little careful with your gift i.e. nothing rude/inappropriate.

Budget - somewhere around £5-£10, its about being affordable and fun. But I dont imagine anyone will mind if you wish to spend a little more.

Also if you wish to join please join in the fun on the thread, most of the excitement around SS is learning a little about the person you are going to buy for and it makes it VERY difficult if we have nothing to go on, I'm not saying write a wish list of things you'd like but a few hints here and there never go astray.... we can pick up ideas from the threads you post on and blogs etc. Most of all though enjoy and very early Merry Fetchmas from me xx

Fetch HeartRate Data Study running Hi everyone
<br><br>
Please sign up to this group if you are interested in taking part in a study relating HR data and training / racing. The results of the study will be published on the site and hopefully incorporated into its functionality, i.e. to provide accurate guides to training / race potential, based on your current training etc. I will also provide you with a detailed summary of your individual statistics!
<br><br>
To take part in the study ideally you should have been using an HRM for at least 3 months, use it fairly regularly, log your training religiously on Fetch (and differentiate between training types) and be happy for me to pester you with questions (if needbe) about your training.
<br><br>
You will need to answer a short questionnaire at the start of the study, which I will fmail you and I'll liaise with the main man Fetch to determine the best way to obtain your training data!
<br><br>
All the best!

Please take into account that the mail might not be as fast as Rudolph: it would be appreciated if all gifts could be POSTED by the END OF NOVEMBER.

ONCE YOU HAVE POSTED:
Please update the spreadsheet Link (roll over me to see where I go) to let us know when you have posted your victim's goodies. Similarly, please update the sheet when your goodies arrive. The sooner all those lovely boxes get filled, the sooner the elves can kick back and start on the vodka.

WISH LIST:
Don't be elusive once you've signed up as most of the fun is in the stalking and learning about your victim. You could think about pimping your profile and adding your list for Santa of things you like and types of gifts you enjoy. Also add your likes and dislikes etc below.

BUDGET:
As previously I think we should officially leave the budget at around a £5, but its really up to you how flush you are feeling...

COMPLETING A MARATHON running Time doesn't matter in this group... what's important is the finish line.... the reason why you are doing a marathon.... it doesn't have to be in 2009 it can be in the next 10 years... maybe you have lost somebody close and want to dedicate a marathon to them... maybe you have recovered from illness and want to celebrate.... likewise recovery from injury (myself included). On the tv coverage we see the elite runners who have trained so hard and get fantastic times, but hours after they have finished there are people still out there in their wake with amazing stories, time is not an issue.... and in the days afterwards when people ask "well what was your time? " - Don't be afraid to say "I enjoyed the day, and was pleased with my time..." Don't be "embaressed" with your time.... there are far more people who would be incapable of doing what you've just done.... 26.2 miles is a long way..... that's what this group is about! fetcheveryone 63

From the Fetchmass Elves, weekatiepea and Chicken Licken x

As previous years please state if you are
a) happy to receive anything - and be prepared for what that may be
or
b) if you would like your SS to be a little careful with your gift i.e. nothing rude/inappropriate.

Budget - somewhere around £5-£10, its about being affordable and fun. But I dont imagine anyone will mind if you wish to spend a little more.

Also if you wish to join please join in the fun on the thread, most of the excitement around SS is learning a little about the person you are going to buy for and it makes it VERY difficult if we have nothing to go on, I'm not saying write a wish list of things you'd like but a few hints here and there never go astray.... we can pick up ideas from the threads you post on and blogs etc. Most of all though enjoy and a very early Merry Fetchmas from me xx

And if you go under or over 700 miles nobody will mind.

Fetchenstein running So there's no funding (lottery or otherwise) for anyone but a couple of established marathon runners leading up to 2012 and the only money available seems to be getting splashed on sprinters with a penchant for diamond earings and flouncing about like peacocks for hours in preparation for less than a minute's actual effort.

Fetchies, Romans, Countrymen! We can change that.

I reckon if we all chipped in then a bursary/grant/scholarship type arrangement could keep an up and coming marathon runner in gels and plimsoles for a year, thus saving the poor thing having to learn how the fries machine is operated while working towards that all-important fifth star.

If there's 'no money' in the sport then the only practical means we have of changing that is to put some in ourselves and demonstrate to sponsors that it can be a viable commercial proposition.

Here are some random thoughts about how such a thing could work:

1,500 people paying £20 = £30K but I don't see a cash-strapped athlete turning their nose up at even a few hundred quid if it keeps them in shoes for a year or summat. Reckon we could get Natmag involved to match it if a good CBA (cost/benefit analysis not 'it's too cold to go for a run' ;-) ) can be made.

Marathon runner, 2012 medal prospect. Age and gender immaterial. (we're an equal opportunities bunch of loonies)

I reckon finding someone would be easy, given the club and coaching links we've got available.

The benefactor/victim would be encouraged to 'join in' here but as a bare minimum would be expected to log their training and make it visible to sponsors.

Maybe UKA would like to get involved and combine any Fetchie revenue with one of their own (lottery or no) programmes?

Issues:

Fetch is usually more inclusive rather than focussing on elite running but I reckon the community sponsorship/ownership of this would counter that argument.

When money's involved things get tricky legally. Trust fund? Ask the MyFootball club peeps etc. etc.

What if the recipient's a donkey? Can we ditch them and get another one after a year?

Check back for updates and if all goes well, actual real life 'decisions'.

700 miles is neither necessary nor sufficient

The InBetweeners weight loss group running UPDATE:
I've been playing with the spreadsheet today, trying to tidy it up, and add a few bits and pieces.

I totalled the group weight loss an we seem to have lost someone. Can you all have a good look please, see if they slid down the back of the sofa or something. They'll be about 10st 4lbs (66kg). Thats what the group has lost between us. 145 lbs!

Not as Lardy (or mean) as Max's lot and not as thin as the others, this is a group to lose a sensible amount of weight in a sensible amount of time.

The Threadie: Link (roll over me to see where I go)

Set the end date as February 14th

Please update the spreadsheet ( Link (roll over me to see where I go) ) to let us know when you have posted your victim's goodies. Similarly, please update the sheet when your goodies arrive. The sooner all those lovely boxes get filled, the sooner the elves can kick back and start on the Aquavit. We WILL get stroppy with people who do not respond to messages after the deadline. Please don't be that person. If something untoward happens, please let your Elf know.

WISH LIST:
Don't be elusive once you've signed up as most of the fun is in the stalking and learning about your victim. You could think about pimping your profile and adding your list for Santa of things you like and types of gifts you enjoy. Also add your likes and dislikes etc below.

BUDGET:
I've slightly increased the budget this year to around a tenner. However, that is only a guideline. Don't be disappointed if the Antiques Roadshow values your gift rather lower.

HO HO HO MERRY FETCHMASS!!

FLM 2009 FETCHPOINT - SUPPORTERS running Hello! as many of you know, we had a fantastically successful Fetch support point in FLM07 and FLM08 (which became known as FLM Fetchpoint).

The location was at about mile 22, where we felt that runners would be in dire need of a smile and a wave and possibly - very true in many cases - a hug. I still have fond memories of being hugged by a random set of firemen in full uniform in 07......ahem! :-)

Anyway, we are doing it again!

Aiming for the same point, approximately mile 22, which is The Highway. It's on the sunny side of the street and has the added benefit that mile 13 runs up the other side of the road so we get a chance to yell at our lovely runners TWICE!

So come along and join in the fun. I can promise you balloons aplenty, lots of fun and laughter and a good warm glow from doing something lovely for your fellow Fetchie. :-)

And probably a wee trip to the pub after.... At this stage, we need names on a list (there will be a separate list for runners and their requirements) and further down the line we will divide into groups and allocate you some runners.

Dedicated website is under development.

Dedicated email address is the one from last year as I managed to remember the password ;-).

Furman training running Furman Institute of Running and Scientific Training (F.I.R.S.T.) acolytes!

This group is for those who are currently doing or want to do Furman type training, to share tips, log progress etc.

Some links:
Furman home page: Link (roll over me to see where I go)
Furman mara plan (for beginners?): Link (roll over me to see where I go)/2006%20marathon%20training-first%20marathon.pdf
Runners World published version: Link (roll over me to see where I go)

Sample Furman "3 runs a week" program:

The FIRST Training Plan
The FIRST marathon program includes three running workouts per week—a speed workout, a tempo run, and a long run. Here’s the full, 16-week marathon training program. Participants are also encouraged to cross-train for 40 to 45 minutes on two other days per week.

Week - - Intervals - - - Tempo - - - - Long

1 - - - - 8x400 m - - - - 3 miles - - - - 10 miles
2 - - - - 4x1200m - - - - 5 miles - - - - 12 miles
3 - - - - 6x800m - - - - 7 miles - - - - 13 miles
4 - - - - 3x1600m - - - - 3 miles - - - - 10 miles
5 - - - - 10x400m - - - - 5 miles - - - - 14 miles
6 - - - - 5x1200m - - - - 5 miles - - - - 15 miles
7 - - - - 7x800m - - - - 8 miles - - - - 17 miles
8 - - - - 3x1600m1 - - - - 0 miles - - - - 13 miles

14 - - - - 7x800m - - - - 4 miles - - - - 15 miles
15 - - - - 3x1600m - - - - 8 miles - - - - 10 miles
16 - - - - 30 min easy w 5x60s - - - - 20 min easy w 3 or 4 pickups - - - - Marathon

The FIRST Paces
The training paces recommended by the FIRST program are somewhat faster than those recommended by other training plans. Of course, with just three running days a week, you should be well rested for each workout. Here are the paces you’ll need to run, each expressed relative to your current 10-K race pace.

Long Run - - - - 10-K pace + 60 to 75 seconds/mile
Long Tempo - - - - 10-K + 30 to 35 seconds
Mid Tempo - - - - 10-K + 15 to 20 seconds
Short Tempo - - - - 10-K pace
1600m Repeats - - - - 10-K - 35 to 40 seconds
1200m Repeats - - - - 10-K - 40 to 45 seconds
800m Repeats - - - - 10-K - 45 to 50 seconds
400m Repeats - - - - 10-K - 55 to 60 seconds

2010 Miles Xmas Challenge running Aim of the game is to record 2010 miles between us from 12AM on 1st December and Christmas Day @11.59PM. Maximum of 50 members. 80.4 miles a day on average.

Breakdown of average daily mileage required by each member.

50 Members - 1.61 miles per day
40 members - 2.01 miles per day
30 members - 2.68 miles per day
20 members - 4.02 miles per day
10 members - 8.04 miles per day

If we make it with time to spare, which probably means we have a big group, I suggest we have to do at least 201.0 miles a day from then on which may be a little more challenging...

FECS - FetchEveryone Common Sense running If you are a member of this group then you are someone who is committed to training and helping people to train in a responsible, sensible manner and creating an environment on here for runners that will encourage people to train in a way that will help to reduce the risk of personal injury and increase the enjoyment of running, the sport we all love so much. You don't have to be a coach and you don't have to be a 'seasoned' runner. All that matters is that you agree with the ideals set out here in the FetchEveryone Common Sense Guidlines set out here below:

1. You are responsible for your own body. Listen to it. Your coach is *not* responsible for your body!
2. Listen to good advice, but see #1
3. A training plan is a guide, not a dictator. See #1 & #2
4. Running should be fun so why put yourself through a punishing training regime to do something you don't really want to do?
5. Being inspired to progress and do well with your running is good. Allowing it to make you prematurely reach for goals you aren't ready for is quite a different kettle of fish (not good). See #1-4
6. Don't do a race just because you don't want to lose face with friends or whatever. See #1-5

The guidelines were thought of by LizzieLou, I slightly altered number 5 to make it read a little better.

Black Pantherz running It's a group dedicated to the super cool running look initiated by our very own JockItch.

Jock and Gobi went to a time trial in suitable Pantherz attire.

Now DrBob and Jock want us to GATECRASH events NATIONWIDE in our HUNDREDS while Widger has now started her own faction, the Anti

Pantherz who dress with the cruicial knee sox compression technology BUT in WHITE instead of the Pantherz BLACK.

Now even FETCH HIMSELF has become a PANTHER!

IanM has now taken the look to the NEXT LEVEL utilising SKINS™ with BioAcceleration Technology™ and cruicially the POWERSOX™

KR2 is the latest to enter the Pantherz lair...

Who knows where this will end??? Well, probably just here but you never know... :-);-)

Erm, just in case anyone reads this and thinkns I have now completely gone off my trolley, there is a semi serious message behind all of this: let's have some fun, let's make even more running events have an even more conspicuous Fetchie presence.

Oh and spread the love! :-)

Edinburgh Marathon 2011 Fetchpoint running A group to try an keep up with what's going on for Fetchpoint. We can't possibly not have a fetchpoint so in Santa's absence I hope we can still get something worthwhile organised!

Fetchpoint is around mile 12 on the way out to Gosford an 23-ish on the way back. This mean it does NOT see the half marathon folks I'm afraid.

RUNNERS:- We'll be looking out for Fetch vests! If you don't have one we likely won't spot you in the crowds so yell FETCH! Stop an come right up an have a hug an a jelly baby Raspberry!

COLLECTION FOR FETCHPOINT:- All donations welcome (jelly babies, jaffa cakes, oranges , water, whatever you like really) !Edinburgh Parkrun on Saturday 21st May then the afternoon at Ryans Bar in town. If it's stuff for yourself please label with your name an number/colour.

Please join up an ensure I don't miss anything important and so you know when 'things' are starting to move!

If it's just a fraction of the usual success I'm pretty certain we'll all be happy so here goes......

Tracking Total Training Time running Hi guys, this is the group to join (and to give update in your notes) for tracking total training time. It's linked to the "356 hours training in 2011" thread and perhaps to others in due course?

General idea is:
A thread for those feeling left out by all the "1000 miles in 2011" threads etc

Whatever you count as training, counts as training. Shout out your hours done...

Format for your update should look summat like this:

Target....Total so far.....Date
e.g.
400 ..... 21.44 ..... 16 Jan 2011

Optionally, you can put in the % progress too (if you're a stat geek like me and Isabel!)
e.g.
Target....Total hrs (% of target).....Date (% way through year)
400 ..... 24.04 (6%) ..... 18 Jan 2011 (4.9%)

This might not work, but here we go...!

FLM 2008 FETCH Support Group running Hello!

as many of you know, we had a fantastically successful Fetch support point in FLM07 (which became known as Fetchpoint).

The location was at about mile 22, where we felt that runners would be is dire need of a smile and a wave and possibly - very true in many cases - a hug. I still have fond memories of being hugged by a random set of firemen in full uniform last year......ahem! :-)

Anyway, we are doing it again! Aiming for the same point, approximately mile 22, which is The Highway. It's on the sunny side of the street and has the added benefit that mile 13 runs up the other side of the road so we get a chance to yell at our lovely runners TWICE!

So come along and join in the fun. I can promise you balloons aplenty, lots of fun and laughter and a good warm glow from doing something lovely for your fellow Fetchie. :-) And probably a wee trip to the pub after....

At this stage, we need names on a list (there will be a separate list for runners and their requirements) and further down the line we will divide into groups and allocate you some runners.

Dedicated website is under development. (Thanks to John66 for being hot off the mark on that one)

Dedicated email address likely to come soon too. For any problems, queries etc etc.

Fetch NaNo-ers non-running A group for novelling Fetchies doing NaNoWriMo.... <p>

<a href="target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="Link (roll over me to see where I go)/"" title="Link (roll over me to see where I go)/"">Link (roll over me to see where I go) target="_blank">Link (roll over me to see where I go)</a><p>

What is Nanowrimo?<br>
Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.<br>

Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It's all about quantity, not quality. The kamikaze approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.<br>

Make no mistake: You will be writing a lot of crap. And that's a good thing. By forcing yourself to write so intensely, you are giving yourself permission to make mistakes. To forgo the endless tweaking and editing and just create. To build without tearing down....<p>
