I've left Cool Running / Active for good, except for the occasional guerilla attack in the Clubhouse. So I'd like to start this 40/40 thing over here. Basically anybody over 40 years old who runs or strives to run 40+ miles per week can join. If you occasionally drop below 40 you should still post. We give you a "free pass" for the week. The members post their daily runs and a weekly total with any highlights. The following Monday the secretary (me for the time being) posts the totals for the previous week. Since we're starting out fresh I don't have any totals to post for last week, thus the fantasy thread which I just thought up and posted.<br><br>
It would be nice if I were currently running over 40MPW so I could get this sucker underway, but right now I'm being a couch potato and probably won't get to 40 per week until early January. So let's see if we can make a go of it over here. If nobody posts anything I'll try again next week.<br><br>
Thanks.

I guess it's time to join the 40/40 group. I've always posted in the other weekly thread (cross-training and running) as my mileage hovers in the upper 30's to lower 40's and I do ride my bicycle a bit. With colder weather, the bike riding has stopped, but my weekly mileage should consistently be above 40 miles per week until warmer weather. Anyways, here goes:
<ul><li>M.....................rest day - <b>done</b></li>
<li>T....................5.5 miles - <b>done</b></li>
<li>W....................rest day - <b>done</b></li>
<li>Th.....................7 miles - <b>done</b></li>
<li>F.....................17 miles - <b>done</b></li>
<li>S.....................rest day - <b>done</b></li>
<li>Su.................11.1 miles - <b>done</b></li>
</ul>
Total......................40.5 miles - <b>done</b><br><br>

I've been running higher mileage with (even) less speed work for last couple of weeks - Week Ending 12/16 - 85.9 miles @7:49 pace. - All single runs - generally a dozen at lunchtime.<br><br>
I believe I'll end up with about the same for this week.<br><br>
Thanks for doing this Dr. Wu.<br><br>

Hey Dr Wu, how is this thread different from Sans Souci's weekly thread? There are a bunch of folks running 40+ mpw who post on that thread.<br><br>
Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying you shouldn't do 40/40 here, but I never understood the reason for the separate threads on CR either. This is an honest question.

The difference between San Souci's weekly thread and a 40/40 thread is that 40/40'ers strive to run 40+ miles every week. It's a damn good motivator. Everybody who runs 40 or more gets put in order of mileage with a brief description of their highlights. Those who fall short (and that will be me until early January) can get a "free pass" for the week or ask to be taken off the list temporarily. So the difference is that basically we're a bunch of 40+ YO runners who run 40+ per week. Simple, right?
