Wow fair play for running in a rainy 29C, that air must be like breathing soup! Living in Ireland rain tends to be almost a daily affair too - but only during Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. However our temperatures hardly get over 19C and averages aro...

How about treadmill?

Question • 3 answers

It says "All kms logged on road, track, trail or cross country count" but does not mention treadmill.  I do both and log them under running.  If treadmill is excluded, will the system not count all km automatically as it's logged under "Running"? 

Newest answer

Gerry @gerryf:  with the new system everying logged as "Running" is counted towards the challenge.  I do a combination of outdoors & treadmill, however, your challenge stipulates "All kms logged on road, track, trail or cross country count".  What shall I d...

CLARIFICATION

Nah, I understand how confusing it is at the moment with some new challenges acting differently to old one's and single training sessions appearing across a multitude of challenges, but not actually updating totals etc :))

Can I interrupt the program for a week and the continue?

Question • 6 answers

The reason why I ask is that between now and the end of the year there will not be a month when I am not travelling and when I am away I will have no access to a gym which for this challenge is a must.  Really appreciate your feedback. 

Newest answer

I have yet to hit complete, but think it is a fabulous plan. Not sure I will ever hit complete as my joints can't handle all of the days. Still won't stop me from using the program:) Go get 'em Loretta. If I could do a pull up, you most surely can:)))
