Getting out on the bike more for cross training and enjoyment.

Sub 25 min 5k.

To enter my first race in 2013.  I will do it!

I want to be more selfish. I spend so much of my time looking after other people and making sure they're happy that I'm really not doing myself any good. I'm thinking of taking up a team sport, joining a choir and taking my swimming a bit more seriously. I'd like to get my sports nutrition business up and running properly too! I will also continue to eat peanut butter straight out of the jar

sub 2 Richmond Half, sub 25 parkrun would be nice this year, complete first marathon (Warsaw probably). And make it to RW London social as haven't managed this year :/

Eat and drink less and get a sub 5h at the London Marathon whilst carrying a Giant Teddy called Trev

@santas little tiger - what breeds would you avoid? I'm worried about getting one and the allergy being too much. How long did it take you to become tolerant?

Get Abs by spring!

Run Chester Marathon in a decent time and having trained for it properly.  My days of not running  much and turning up to run a marathon on about 11 miles are done. I'm starting early for Chester!

Stay injury free for 2013, having missed most of last two years due to cartilige and achilles problems, and with luck complete all 8 Lakeland Trail events.

Finish my first marathon (Berlin in September), get under 45 mins for a 10k and smash my fundraising target for BHF of £2,500.

Sounds easy enough when typing it...!

1000 miles in 2013 and complete my first marathon
31/12/2012 at 12:54

Not given up on a sub-40 minute 10km some time, though a lot of work to do!

31/12/2012 at 13:18

I'm only really starting out with this whole thing, so what I want to do is enter my first ever 5km race in the month of January and hopefully compete in a local race called the Warrior's Run, which is comprised of a 15km run that brings you up and down the largest hill in the West of Ireland. I entered 2 years ago but ended up completely backing out because I know I didn't train hard enough
This year though!! Hopefully it will be a good one!!

Run my first marathon, get over this injury and lose 1/2 a stone!

I'm going to watch more free live sports on the internet , indulge in as much phone sex with Indian girls as I can, and may possibly buy some Bose headphones.

Really don't know why I want to do these .... just one of those things I suppose !

I want to run my first marathon, that's my main goal. Would love to get my half times to 1.30 or 10k sub 40!

Emmy H, I have dog allergies which trigger my asthma, Golden Retrievers terrible, Jack Russell fine. Think it's to do with the type of hair.

Goals for 2013, 1.45 at Bath Half. Enter a full marathon for the autumn.

Happy New Year to all hope you got everything you wanted for xmas.I'm looking forward to doing The London Marathon and hope everyone doing any training it goes well will welcome any hints or tips for training I'm not Fast but I'm willing to put in the miles to achieve getting round safely along with everyone and enjoy the day Good Luck to all 

31/12/2012 at 17:37

To complete the Grand Union Canal race and Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc.

Happy New Year to all ! Margaret - there are good Marathon training plans in "Runner's World" January edition. I will use the "beginner's" one and after all that time saying I'd never attempt the distance I am signing up to Berlin, hopefully with Macmillan. I'd love to try for the London but I don't have a place and I don't think I can raise £2,000 and train in the short time left. Good luck with your training. Assume you have done a half or just about to do one?

31/12/2012 at 18:08

Hello everyone, after an injury hit couple of years, my new years resolutions are to run as much as I physically can! but in particular to run the entire length of the River Thames and then the Virgin London Marathon over 12 days maximum to fundraise for the British Heart Foundation. Any tips for me people? Happy New Year!
