I'm doing Stratford too..

I've put some of these up before but this year (OK 2004), I really think I can do it..

No 10K PB but 45 mins would be nice..
1.45 half mara (PB 1.46.50)
sub 4 marathon. (PB 4 hrs 29)

Run 8 min miles aerobically as a result of base training (if I do that, all the above are very doable))...

Get over current injury and stay injury free.

Get back to running 5 days and and an average 50+ miles per week.

Get into the habit of stretching more and working on core stability/strengthening.

A sub 38 minute 10K.
A sub 64 minute 10M.
A sub 83 minute 1/2M.
Another sub 3 hour marathon.
Another ultra marathon (or two).

Stay healthy - finish the year fitter, faster, leaner, stronger and happier than I started it.

3 marathons and an ultra planned, plus numerous halfs and 10K's

aiming for 3.44 marathon, 1.45 half and 45min 10K this year

Mine will be to get back to running regular - I hate these dark nights. I run alone and find it hard getting out in the dark.

Need to get back to 25 miles/week at least.

PB for 2004

Join a running club in Jan

beat 9 min mile
beat 55 min 10K
run GNR in 2 hours ( did 2 hrs 11 mins this year)

Find a running buddy

Get out and enjoy it again - I feel stuck in a rut at the moment

White Peak Marathon

Foulees de la Soie.

Loch Ness marathon?

That is not to say there won't be halfs and 10Ks and other races, but as I will never be trying for any particular time in any race, I will not be choosing or training for any of the shorter races in advance.

The most important is just to keep running. The way to keep running however is to choose something to train for and then set on doing the training for it.

Only one main aim namely a sub 2:35 marathon.

I was sure I'd posted on this...


1 - learn to ride a bike
2 - swim more than 15metres. yes, that's fifteen metres. No words like 'hundred' missing, or anything.
