1) Do the Barcelona marathon (my first and possibly only) - in 3.30
2) Get extremely hammered afterwards
3) Avoid alcohol from 1 Jan to race day 6th March
4) Improve on this years mileage - 1,250
5) Stop buying so much running gear - or buy another wardrobe to keep it in !
6) Break 45 mins for 10k
7) Break 1.40 for a 1/2
1) Complete my fist marathon in April (Madrid)
2) Complete another marathon in Autumn (possibly Amsterdam or Berlin)
3) Get my 10k time down to 45min
4) Improve on my half mara time of 1h 52min (hopefully to below 1h45min)
4) Reduce alcohol intake
5) Continue enjoying running like I have this year and get progressively fitter and faster
It makes it all very real by writing it down doesnt it!
Reading (my hometown) Half in under 2 hours
Do the London 10K in under 55 mins
Beat my GNR time of 2.12
Spend the rest of the year training for the Goofy Race and a Half Challenge in Orlando, Jan 2012.
I like the idea of this thread.
My running goals for 2011 are:
Good work everyone, great to see so many other people geting involved in this shinanigans.
I've been laying some decent foundations in the last few weeks. I'm consistent running over 20 miles per week now - mixing up longer runs, threshold runs, and intervals.
Swimming is looking good too, winterswim is acting as great motivation and my longest session is 1750m - 1/3 of my 5K target for 2011.
Cycling has gone totally to pot but will pick that up again in the new year.
You can follow my training progress here on Twitter for regular updates and progress towards dominating 2011!
-Sub 2:25 for second marathon.-Get used to running 95/100mpw-Break 15 for 5k-Enjoy rest of life!
Hobbling Harrier, I think you've completely set the roof for this thread's aims!
Good targets everyone.
My 2011 aim is to run well and uninjured and run between the 50-70mile mark each week, and on the way set pbs at 5k, 5m, 10k, 10m and 1/2m.
Goals for 2011 are just to keep running and enjoy it as much as I can, would like.....
Sub 24min 5k
Sub 50min 10k
Sub 1hr 30min 10mile
Sub 2hr Half Marathon
Sub 4hr 30min Marathon, either Belfast or Liverpool.
Any of the above and I would be very happy
Hey this is getting good reading all of the goals!
My training is defo on the up, I went for a 13miler last weekend and have a 15 miler this weekend. I am up to 20+ miles a week in training and have some intreval training planned for this week.
Barcelona Marathon (1st M) race is 6th March, so getting excited with training but nervous about the race.
Godd luck everyone with the training and pounding the pavements :0)
Great news Sarah, good work.
I'm feeling in really good nick too and am getting the benefit of some consistent training over the last few months now.
Brass Monkey Half Marathon up next and I'm in Leeds and Liversedge too, so that's 3 out of my target of 4 this year.
Debating which swimathon event to do - should I got for the big 5K and bag that objective early in the year?
