Right with the New Year rapidly approaching I think it is time to take stock of what I have achieved in the last year and what I hope to achieve in 2013. It would be good to see what targets other people are aiming for in 2013 and how they are going to get there. So with out further ado in 2013 I aim to achieve the following

5k - anytime under 18 minutes (current PB 18.34)

10K - 38 minutes (PB 39.01)

1/2 mara - 1:19:xx (PB 1:23:49)

Mara - under 3 hours (PB 3:03:34)

I am going to achieve these by training smater and eating less cheese, though I believe red wine and beer to beneficial to the running process. What targets/resolutions do other people have?

Sub 20 min 5k (Currently 21:40)

New Pb for 5 miles (Currently 33.30)

Sub 42 min 10k (Currently 42:47)

 

My times have improved nicely in the last 3 months just by training regular with new running club, so basically more of the same, and I'm sure it'll happen.

Sub 22 min 5k (currently 23m 30s)

Sub 36 min 5m (currently 38m 36s)

Sub 45 min 10k (currently 49m 40s)

Sub 1 hr 45 min half marathon (currently 1hr 58m 15s)

Joined a running club 5 weeks ago and already experiencing improvements due to a more structured approach to training. Hopefully, I can stay fit and healthy in 2013 and achieve my goals.

Sub 34 min 10K

Sub 3hr Marathon

02/01/2013 at 12:59

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!

Interesting couple there. Clearly you're biased to short speed, over long distance!

want an ironman PB this year but until the training unfolds in the next few months will not have a clue as to what i will aim for........will train and then assess the target

I want to run my first marathon in under 3:15. I have no plans to eat less cheese, though.

Oh well.......the 5 mile run in Feb wasn't too successful. I didn't crack 29 mins, I got 29:10. But I did finally crack my 5 mile goal yesterday enroute to a 10K in 36:10. The 5 mile time was 28:56!

So thats one goal accomplished so far this year....

Jamie........10 secs both time ...well done on getting one of the targets

04/03/2013 at 07:48

have managed to break a couple of my targets already this year, but looking back I never made them public! Oh well.

2nd goal of the year now achieved. I beat 60 mins in a 10 mile race. Actual time was 59:06.

Just the 10K and 1 mile goals to go now.......

Jamie, you can't count splits in races as pbs

But well done on the 10miler tho.

12/05/2013 at 21:59

Forgot all about this thread. First marathon completed in 3:06:16. Hurrah!

Fair enough fella. Theres hardly any 5 mile races locally.....at least not till October. But having gone faster than 29 mins enroute to a 10K indicates at least to myself that it is a goal surpassed. Either way, it was back in March; I should be comfortably inside 29 mins for 5 miles now, but I'll wait for October for the official result....fingers crossed no injuries before then!

14/05/2013 at 21:45

yep, you should definitely be fine the next time out..

although i remember i beat my 10mile in a half once, and took ages to officially beat the 10!

it became a saga!

Its strange that isn't it? A fellow competitor at the weekend ran a faster 10 mile time enroute to a half marathon a few weeks before and on paper should have got a PB.

Hell, we're all human, not machines.....there are plenty of other influencing factors.

15/05/2013 at 10:03

one aspect is sometimes the 10miles might actually be net down within a half marathon, with the inclines in the last 3miles...

similar to 5miles within a 10k...

There's also the element that you're taking your own splits, which can never be as official as an official time.

Do a race that has official splits...that's a different story maybe,

One mile goal for the year accomplished last night. Back in January I was hoping for sub 4:50 and I blagged a 4:49 last night.....close!!

 

There was a lot of other runners participating and I spent a lot of time in lanes 2 & 3, so I might have shaded a couple of seconds more on a less well attended event.

Sub 36 min 10K is next goal on the cards with a bit of luck.

How is everyone else's 2013 going?
