On the basis that no-one has already done so, I've set up this months challenge.

Furthest in June. Although we all know that Soggy will win. Could someone please put a stone in his shoe so he'll find it uncomfortable to run more than about a mile a day :D

I'll invite those who were invited last month, but if I miss anyone, or anyone else wants to play, please let me know your nike+ id, or email and I'll send an invite.

:)

Yes. I noticed. :rolleyes:

I'm a bit pissed off, as i seem to have lost tonights 6km. It's on the iphone, and allegedly synced, but isn't appearing in nike+ :( bugger.

I had a couple appear on Nike + but not on the challenge. Coming to the end of a week off running.....sadly there aren't too many non concrete surfaces to run on near me and last week got hit with shin splints fairly bad. Think it's a combo of poor stretching with heavy road running. Itching to get back into it. SWMBO bought me Paula Radcliffe's book How to Run. Some good stuff in there but I'm struggling to find the decent iTunes Nike+ playlists for a half marathon. I thought I'd be able to go in, select a finish time and get a playlist using some of my songs as reference for musical taste.....sadly not :(

nope. I set the challenge up this afternoon, and ran after work. It may turn up eventually - it has done this before. There was an update on the app a couple of days ago, which might have upset things. Hey ho.

if it continues then get your running gait checked as you may need orthotics to level off your feet. It worked for me.

Had it checked by the shop when I bought the shoes. Apparently I have a neutral gait. But if it continues then I'll go back and get it rechecked.

I'm in for June, let myself down :cry: in May..... and just to explain why I'm still an orange even though my mileage says more...... I get a recurring calf problem when I run, so mostly restricted to the elliptical trainer. Sadly it only logs your miles (but looses about 20% of your distance in converting to cardiomiles, or something, so my 12.5k alwasy converts to a little over 10k! :angry:), but doesn't credit your colour status.... I so want to be green!

Do what I do then.

Tie the shoes to the neighbour's dog, enjoy a pint in the pub :D

I did a fair few personal challenges last year, but none so far - I might just set one up, otherwise I'll end up failing to do anything decent in the Cardiff Half
