It has been very worthwhile using some ‘free’ time today to try to work out the logistics of the events/challenges I have pencilled in for the next 3 years. More a case of how to fit in everything I’d like to do! And a logical progression in terms of toughness.
To a certain extent, though next year is supposed to be all about the mile, I will need to be very clever about how I can still have some longer training in the mix? Very odd to think in terms of mesocycles that last for years rather than months and a macrocycle of 4 years [now till end of 2020]. Simply Olympian. lol
So, yes, just as with the Thousand Day Challenge and its mini-challenges [some like the 50/50 not so mini] I now have a bigger challenge in mind for 2020 with its own mini-challenges. The fates seemingly demand it! Why? The distance for the 50/50 was 26.2 miles x 50 = 1310 miles total. I just discovered that from the first day post TDC [Saturday 17th December 2016] to Sunday 19th July 2020 is exactly 1310 days!? Pretty much around when school hols begin, giving me 6-7 weeks for an adventure.
This evening a jog to/from evening 10K training for the longest I have run [apart from a Half and Marathon] since end of 50/50. Was I ever really running 10 miles every day even? A week to go till this year’s Movember Milo Miles 2016.
TDC 948 days 10387 miles
