Benz -- my friend's hubby is doing his MD and it's driving her nuts nevermind him :)

neilruns -- see, that's what I meant, I think a PB to some people is just as important a focus as "fighting" cancer - see to me, my fighting cancer is something I don't have a say in and have to do regardless of what I want. Whereas a PB, is like an ambition and dream to achieve with a sense of achievement. I doubt I'll have that sense of achievement once the chemo and radium is finished, I think I'll be just so glad it's over :)

I only have 1 goal, having done the GSR two out of the last three years - My goal is to complete the 2003 running the whole way!!!
Oh yes and World Peace!

I'm having to do a lot of thinking about running cos I've found it hard recently. So here goes :

1. To run that wretched Windsor half in 2hrs. 5mins (did 2hrs 8mins today over a very hilly course with a dog fight half way)

2. Maybe to think about increasing my speed over the next year - this year I've focused on distance and I think 13.1 miles is at least about 3 miles too far for me

3. But then the Reading half... hadn't thought about it but it would be a shame to let this level of fitness and endurance dwindle away over the winter

4. To try and increase my decision making skills - or maybe I should do some kind of course - what do you think...?!

My goals are:

to run 5k in under 30mins (PB 31.12)
10k in under 60mins (PB 65mins)

to complete the GNR in under 2 and half hours and run all the way.

Long term goals maybe do another marathon and be much better prepared than my very sorry attempt in 1999.

To consitently run 10min miles.

To keep running until I'm very old.
