235 miles a day for a year (Amanda Coker Challenge)

Discussion in 'Time Trial, Long Distance and Endurance' started by Mugshot, 27 Feb 2017.

  1. I think his month record was in excess of 230 mpd. Need to look it up. I don't think he's in any shape for that at the moment.

    Edit. From umca
    Distance (miles): 7104.3
    Time (days): 30
    HAMR (miles/day): 236.81

    From the other place, from the horse's mouth at 1031 today:

  3. It's a shame that he's not going to hit the TG record but to be honest, after about 3 years of witnessing discussions about the ins and outs of records and rules, and maintaining spreadsheets and Strava interface software for his and Kajsa's years, calculating required rates and all kinds of numbers. I've lost a bit of interest in the record stuff myself.

    Time to take a step back. I'm just in awe of what he's done. As I'm sure we all are.

    The weekly stats posts have made sense of the craziness of the weeks. 200+ mpd is too many to properly be up to date with each day otherwise.

  8. I won't be doing an update next week. I may fit in an interim one later in the week. Then the week after, when Steve has finished, I'll try to do a bumper souvenir edition.

    A day off and some short rides for Steve last week means his daily target for 73,000 miles has gone up.

    In the next six days, including today, I reckon he needs just under 170 miles a day.

    Not a lot in the overall context of the attempt, but a stiffish target looking at Steve's daily mileages over the last few months.

    The weather may yet play a bigger hand than it has already.

    Under 60 miles for Steve yesterday and he's not out so far today.

    Steve now needs 200 miles a day for the last three days to get 73,000 for the year.

    Looks like the weather is having the last word on the record attempt.

    Indeed. My figures have him just under 200 mpd for the first time - after 362 days! I really don't know if overall Steve has had more or less bad luck that he might have expected, but what he's been served up for the finish is exceptionally cruel.

    I'm reminded of Don Bradman's final test innings. No-one thinks any the less of him because he finished on 99.94 - if anything it added to his legend.

    There's an invitation on Facebook to join Steve for laps of the Milton Keynes Bowl on Saturday afternoon.

    I would not say he's had particularly bad luck. Looks fairly average luck for the distance.
