sub 30 5k
yay i started running in early jan, my first park run was 33 min, thenm 31, then 32 (snowy)
lots of practice inbetween, 3k jogs, 8.5 longer slow runs, some mixed training at bootcamp, swimming and walking lots
and beat my aim of sub 30 5k and did my parkrun in 28.32
feeling rather chuffed , now to keep improving and aiming for 10k in sub 60, awaiting work rota to book first 10k event ....
whose almost at there first goal?
well done XcX
good run for your 5K.just keep on working on iy gradually and I'm sure you will get your other goals
My goal was to swim twice a week and have managed to maintain that all through januray ( I hate swimming )
wow 50 miles is brill, i do just over 20 , gradually increasing it tho,
swimming is not fave of mine either, i go because its good exercise and gives my joints a break from pounding, and the husband swims like a fish so he goes often and i eventually agree to join him
I have managed 2 of my goals so far, Sign up for a half marathon and complete tough guy. I am training towards a sub 2hr 15 half.
well done on your park runs, I am going to my 1st one next Sat and very much looking forward to it.
My challenge this year is 2013km in 2013 and January was really good, I got in lots of fun miles in the snow, got upto 20 miles for the first time in a fair wee while, racked up more miles than planned and generally feeling good about life. Look
Then Feb !st one of my dogs decided to run through me in the park and pop went my ankle. Yep I managed 150 plus miles through fields, puddles and snow storms unharmed only to be felled by my "best friend" 200 yards from the house.
We are back on speaking terms again but getting stir crazy not being able to get out. I only come on to the Forums to torture myself a little more
well done curlytwig, i'm sure it'll be the first of many goals you meet. one good thing about running is that there's always another goal, so as soon as you hit one, up pops another into your head. best of luck and keep on enjoying your runs.
my 2013 goals include beating my mates 3:57:06 marathon PB in April in Manchester, and perhaps even beating him in the same race, if we both make it to the start line in one piece. Then i'd like to get my 5k time down from about 24mins by the end of the year. After the marathon in April, i'm going to devote the next 3-4 months to specific 5k training, assuming i can find a good 5k training plan to follow. I'm currently in the best aerobic shape of my life, and hoping to capitalise on the marathon training to build in some speed. I've no real clue at the moment what's achievable or realistic over the summer. Perhaps down to 22min, perhaps lower, we'll see.
Another one going for 2013K in 2013. Managed 233K (146 miles) so far so ahead of schedule. Bad luck oirsheyes - hope you can get back to it soon as your a good week or so ahead of schedule as well if you've already done 150+ miles.
My other goals for 2013 are to get PB's (even if by only a second!) at 5K, 5 miles, 10K and Half Marathon. Yet to race so far this year so none achieved yet although I've earmarked at least two 5K's, two 5 milers, three 10K's and three Half Marathons in the next 8 months.
My 2013 Goals...
sub 30m 5k now down to 30:19 now
sub 60m 10k now down to 63.40 and carried on so could have done quicker
sub 5H marathon only done the one at 5:30:22
i like reading everyones goals
i also want a sub 60 10k
i was planning on a HM but decided now to do a 10k event first and train better as still new to running so not want to over do it
eventually at some point in my life i WILL do a marathon, probable next year , i need milage and time, time i do not have always as crazy work demands , family etc and am doing a FT degree course while working, it finishes feb 2014 so next spring seems ideal
Just managed my sub 48 10K (prev best 55), aiming next for sub 22 5K (prev 24) and 1h 40 HM (prev 1h46) - all in prep for my main goal in Sept of a sub 4h marathon (prev 4h18). I'm still not really training properly though due to the weather (lightweight!).
Plucked up the courage to run my first parkrun last Saturday after doing my first 10k last year May) in 62mins. Put in a lot of miles since then Managed the parkrun in 22:35. Training for two half marathons now. Hoping for 1:50. (please with anything under 2 hours). Aiming to get to 21:30 for 5k.
I might expand on my 2013 goals. Looking to also do my second marathon and although I initially said beat PB's by a second I'm now going for...
5K: Sub 22 (Currently 22:49)
5 Mile: Sub 38 (Currently 39:48)
10K: Sub 48 (Currently 48:25)
HM: Sub 1:48 (Currently 1:49:14)
Marathon: Sub 5 hours (Currently 5:04:08)
I know my marathon time is way out of synch with my other times, but I just can't do it without reducing my pace significantly although I'm working on it.
Grant..........if you train well for your halves you will storm 1:50.......just get the training done.well done.......'lsgend.....that is definitely a well out of balance marathon time......once you crack the marathon training you could get sub 4..........just got to sort it out
Cheers for that Seren, nice confidence boost Still putting in the miles
