Well done to Adam Holland, who topped the #Run1000Miles mileage leaderboard last week with a colossal 221.2 miles! This included seven marathons in seven days as part of the Summer Scorcher Run Festival. He completed every marathon in less than three hours.

Our vibrant Facebook group is buzzing with motivational talk and requests for running advice. For example, Nick Barton posted: "Hit the 1000 miles tonight. A couple of months of injury has put me about 200 miles behind my personal target, but hopefully back building up to decent weekly mileage!"

Some need some motivational words from others, though. Rachel Edmunds reveals: "Does anyone else have days/weeks/months when they feel like they are running slower than a slow thing in treacle? I know I shouldn't be disheartened but since London and Edinburgh Marathons it feels like I've started running backwards! I'm now back on the marathon training treadmill and wondering what the heck I can do to give myself a kick up the arse!"

But some took a big chunk off their 1000 miles. Neil Shoesmith writes on the Facebook group: "Some trail-porn from on the Lakeland 50/100 course with fellow legends... It was the 50 for me so another 5% chalked-off the total for the year."  He posts this picture of his run in the Lakes:
