Our mind sets a goal, our body embodies it...Do you have a goal running? Open it and you cant retreat of your goal)

So true Alex.
Mines not that impressive but I'm going to run a marathon eventually
10/11/2012 at 09:45

Mine has been to run a distance I never thought I could do, I've completed an ultra of  70 miles and will be doing a 100 miler in June 2014, mind you in work and play I've always said that targets become limits for most situations and you have to move the goalposts

Jason, I agree with you. Goal - 26,2 miles is so greatly and everyone who could reach the finish line(and survived) is a great.

To get my 5 & 10k pb's down while I still have time before I start slowing down.  Get that elusive sub 95min hm as well. Just means staying fit for long enough and not doing all these silly trail races.  Don't understand it myself.

Knees are not the problem, look after the whole body and no single point suffers badly. Besides my knees suffered more when I was doing faster short runs.

Lou I'm in for Grizedale trail marathon next Sunday, they also run the Lakeland 100 and I'm thinking that will do me for 2014 I will be entering it in Sept next year

What's your race?
10/11/2012 at 11:35

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

Not particularly quick or far, but in my current shape it is a genuine challenge.
At the moment I'm just about just running sub 7 m/m on flat roads and this course is off road and has a few testing hills.

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

Secondary NFG - I have run 34 mile in the past (Sandstone Trail) and I would love to do an ultra race, (EKGO, Loulabell oustanding) but for now I am just looking to get back in to double figures and hopefully run a half marathon on my birthday in 2 weeks.

Near future goals are to run a road marathon, a sub 2hr half and then the Coastal Trail Series Devon Marathon in 2014.

Long term (and I'll know if this could ever be possible after I attempt the above) is to run a 50 mile or 100k ultra.

Good luck marshallini! Run forward to our minigoal which will help us achieve much better!!!

Mini goals are the answer I guess, work up to it and maintain the right style and gear, all the aches and pains should happen but hopefully take care of themselves

10/11/2012 at 14:38

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)

It'd be nice to get this goal bagged before the end of this year. Seven weeks to go, I think it is possible.

This new time frame has given the challenge added impetus.

Wishing everyone success with their own challenges

im volunteering to help at NDW100 2013 which will get me early entry to do it 2014. NDW50 in6 months time or NDW100 2014 will hopefully be my qualifier for western states100. i did druids ultra yesterday-really recommend it

Well Lou that's what I call a plan, So Druids was good then! I'm going for Lakeland 100 in 2014, then I'll see what's next I fancy one of the American runs but I'll get 2014 over before I commit. I'm booked on the Born to run40 in Feb, and looking at the Cardiff Ultra50 in May, as prep for June, I am thinking I've got a problem with the Wall, I struggled so bad over the last 7 miles and was injured, so I think it's going to bug me until I can get through it in good shape

Not enough Alex! I manage about 25 miles a week at the moment, over 3 runs. Would prefer to be doing 30, over 4, but I'd struggle to fit it in. 25 seems to be about the maximum I can manage.
