I think I was being very optimistic when I set my targets back in late December! Haven't set a pb at all this year. However I usually pick it up in the second half of the year so here's hoping! Though the marathon pb may have to wait until London next year......

Well done Jamie on your PB's so far. You in training to beat the 10K PB?

Literatin congratulations on your first marathon and what a time. Did you enjoy your first marathon experience?

How is everyone else getting along?

targets for year were and are : sub 17 5k, sub 35 10k, sub 28 5 miler and sub 80 half.

i've got the sub 17 5k and sub 28 5 miler but the sub 35 10k has evaded me thus far! Half to come in september but think 80 for first one a bit of a stretch.

have won 2 parkruns now too which was something i'd hoped to do .

in summary plenty done but plenty to do !

I'd have thought a sub 80 was a given off those times tommy

Thanks Stan,

Yea, I've got two 10K road races in 7 days next month.....I'm training hard for them. Both are difficult hilly courses though. Fingers crossed I should blag sub 36 mins for at least one.

I did do a measured 4 mile time trial on the flat yesterday and came in at 22:38. So hopefully with a nice taper and race day nerves I might be able to keep that pace up for another 2.21 miles......

 

Fingers crossed you'll bag a PB as the summer progresses mate.

I'd like to get the following over the next 12 months:

10K: Sub 36 mins

5 mile: Sub 29 mins

1 mile: Sub 4:50

10 mile: Sub 60 min

Half Marathon: Sub 79 mins

 

The above are realistic but tough. It'll be interesting to see how things go. First test is 5 mile road run in Feb.....aim sub 29 mins!

 

 

 

Another 2013 goal accomplished. Finally cracked 36 mins for a 10K. Result was 35:28. Very tough going!!!

Half marathon goal for the year cracked on Sunday: 76 mins 18.

 

Goals for next year will be tough!

Anyone else had success with their hopes and predictions for 2013?

Hi Jamie - well done - great times - did you manage them all? 

I achieved all my goals and aims for 2013 too although never got round to writing them on here and not anywhere near your standard - as the year progressed they all felt a little soft - must be harder on myself for next year although the improvements will probably be slower!

Train 1000 miles - currently about 1410 and will get close to 1600 by year end

parkrun: sub 20 mins - 19:15

10k: sub 40 mins - 38:52

10m: sub 67 mins - 63:40

HM sub 1:28:26 - 1:26:43

Yep cracked them all. The 5 mile time was cracked several times enroute to greater distances however......so not official, but best split enroute to 10K was 27:51.

It looks like you annihilated your own goals too mate!!! We'll have to do a similar thread for 2014....

 

08/12/2013 at 17:38
Yeah a similar thread for next year would be good as I got no where near mine this year! Oh well onwards and upwards! Well done on your times they're amazing. Skinny you should be able to blast your HM time next year as your other times are so quick....

2014 will be my first half marathon, I'm aiming for under 2 hours, for most people in the thread so far this is probably nothing but, it's my first one and we all start somewhere! 

11/12/2013 at 21:41
Hey Geordiegirl we all have to start somewhere and two hours is a great target. My 1st half marathon was just under two hours and now I can do 1:23

Which half are you doing? Good luck and let us know how you get on!
