2022 in 2022

Resolution time!

A new year, a new target!

Who is up for the 2022 in 2022 challenge? Will you go for 2022 miles, or like me will 2022km be the target?

Over the last few years as we have risen to the challenge of 2014 in 2014 up to 2021 in 2021, my trivia knowledge has improved enormously with interesting facts posted matching either the number left or the number completed. Look back at the previous threads for ideas.

On a personal note I turn 68 in a couple of days and have managed the challenge most years: if I can do it, you can! A bit of a close shave some years but the challenge was a major motivator in keeping the training going. You will hopefully find the thread a positive support! All are most welcome!

So, to put some figures on the 2022 in 2022 challenge:

To achieve 2022 kms, or miles, you would need to average arond 5.54 kilometres or miles a day for the 365 days! That averages out at 38.78 km  per week, which converting from kilometres is 24.1 miles a week.

If you work in kms, like I do, you need to average 8.92 km  a day or 62.44 km  per week to achieve the 2022 miles.

On average about 168.5km or miles per month!

2022 miles is 3254.1k; 2021k is 1256.4 miles

If the targets are too easy for you, why not see how quickly you can get there? 

 


Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

  • I have been MIA for a few years due to injury and then covid (didn't get it, but lockdown didn't work for me (booze/food etc.)

    I managed kms a few years ago, reasonably early, definitely enough time to do miles but mileage dropped off.

    So I am glad to see this still going and will aim for kms this year. I have been slowly building base for last couple of months and I am excited to get started.

    Best wishes for new year to all who join (and of course alehouse) look forward to learning lots of facts over the next 12 months.

  • Welcome LFSF and thanks alehouse for setting up again. Managed 1842.13 miles (2964.62 km) in 2021. Will be aiming for 2022 miles.

    So, 5.3 km d&d, so around 2017 to go. 

    Interestingly, The British Red Cross described the current situation in England's NHS hospitals as a "humanitarian crisis". And that was well and truly pre-pandemic!

    21 km done, so 2001 to go. 

    2001, A Space Odyssey, although released 33 years earlier. Particularly notable for the theme tune.

    I hope to manage 3000km this year, but if things are looking good around July/August, I may adjust and aim for 2022 miles! 

    So far I'm on 54km. 

    There are 54 countries in Africa, 54 cards in a deck of cards (including jokers)

    54 is also a "perfect round" in golf on a par 72 course, a score that has never been achieved in competition. Pia Nilsson's organisation Vision 54 teaches her philosophy that concentrates on achieving the perfect round, the basic ideology being that striving for perfection results in better scores even if the goal is not met.

    46 km completed, so 1976 to go. Not only did 1976 see the Montreal Olympics and a very poor showing by GB athletes, it also saw me start teaching. Still doing so!

  • 121km done so far. 

    Emperor Hadrian plots the course of the border between Roman and Celtic Britain, following three years of major rebellion. Construction of the wall begins the following year.

    68 down so 1954 to go.  
    1954: a special year...I was born! And Roger Bannister ran the first sub 4 minute mile.

  • I have run 6 k!

    New years day I felt good, went for my first run of the year.

    Since then it has all been about covid in my house. Hoping to be running by the end of the week.

    2016 to go.

    2016 was that year when Bowie, Prince, Rickman and more all died.
  • 165km done so far. Apparently still ahead of schedule for 2022 miles. 

    165AD - the Antonine plague first breaks out in Rome after the return of soldiers from a military campaign in modern day Iraq. The pandemic spread across Europe and Asia, having a significant effect on both the Roman and Han Chinese empires. Some historians connect the waning of Rome's powers with the outbreak, thought to be caused by smallpox.
  • 84 miles done so 1938 to go

    In 1938
    Oil is discovered in Saudi, leading to vast wealth, the Vatican recognises Franco’s Spanish government and some chap called Hitler marches into Austria…

    108km done so 1914 to go. 

    1914, the start of The Great War, i.e. World War One. Over 40 million casualties, with around 20 million deaths and 21 million casualties. The war was to last 4 years, 3 months and 2 days.
