EKGO, sounds a good plan also! borntorun was a good one for you wasnt it? whats the cardiff 50 like? flat or hilly trail? havnt ever looked that one up.

ive heard split decisions on TheWall, some have liked it, some runners not. dyu think youd do it again in the future?

Hi Lou - Born to Run was my first Ultra, its a little longer this year at 40 but I like the area. Cardiff was recommended last week and is a point to point 50 miler on old railway paths, so I'm looking forward to that one. The Wall does get mixed reviews, I don't care about the weather or the other aspects, I just see it as a challenge that I didn't quite do justice, so yes I'll do it again in June but after that may be other things in the sights.

If you managed 50 and feel fine you're going well, are you doing Gloucester again this year?

I'm setting a few goals over the next year. First is to finish our extention, 2nd is to get the kids to stop thumb sucking & 3rd is to sort a work issue.... Oh did you mean just running goals... Currently on Govember - running 5k daily, have entered Tough Guy in jan (just to finish alive is superb) and have a London mara place to nail 4hours.
I like goals to motivate but am careful not to become too stressed about them or I risk injury as I will overtrain.

My goals for the next 12 months will all be firsts for me - clowne half in2 weeks, Manchester full in April, consiston trail full in July and ladybower 50 ultra in September. It hurts my legs just saying that lot but I'm up for the challenge and looki g forward to it

Near future - First HM in January, complete it in under 1hr30.

After that, a new goal will be determined by how successful I concluded this one.


12/11/2012 at 11:28

goals for next year are:

sub20 5K

sub42 10K

I'd also like to get somewhere near to 70min 10mile.

12/11/2012 at 12:21

My initial goal is to beat my 5 mile pb of 33m 30s, but hope the training for that will get me a sub 20 5k and sub 42 10k, after that will be a sub 40 10k, but thats a more long term goal.

I want to concentrate on the shorter distances for the time being, and will worry about half marathons and marathons when I've achieved these goals.

Current goal (decided a few months ago) is to have done 25 parkruns by the end of the year. I've done 20, and there are 7 Saturdays left before the end of the year, so I may not manage it.

Longer term I want to get my 50 parkrun t-shirt and do at least 10 different parkruns (currently on 7).

Near Future Goals - 7km in under 30 mins.  An average of 6:53 minute/mile.

I've run it twice so far 32:58 and 33:31

marshallini wrote (see)

Just went for a run on my 7k course and took a minute off my best time,

pb now 31:55.44. (7:19 m/m)

Had another go at my 7km trail time trial course today.

Suprised myself with a 29:52.04 (6:51.02m /m) I was expecting to run it at least another 4-5 times until I got anywhere near going under the half hour.

Now I've smashed that I will have to have to come up with a new goal

EKGO, no not doing Gloucester in jan 2013 as in doing winter tanners 30, then 2 weeks after im doing TT50.

17/11/2012 at 08:20
I might do Gloucs again as I have born to run in Feb, unless I can find something off road

Short term goal is the Portsmouth Coastal Marathon in December. After a year dominated by injury and illness I plan on running to a 4 1/2 hour schedule but will be happy just to finish.

Mid term goal is the south downs way marathon next summer. 

In between those I want to go sub 42 minutes for a 10km and sub 1 hour 40 for a half.

No long term goals, the inbetween goals will become short term goals in January with specicfic events identified. When they are out of the way the mid term goal becomes the short term one and I'll look for somethhing else in the later part of last year which will become the new mid term goal. (not sure I've explained that too well)
