Mileage for 2004 was 646.

Target for 2005 - to run my first half marathon. Probably means increasing my mileage a bit?

Target for 2004 - run a half-marathon

Achieved in Feb at Wokingham (1:56). Did it again in Wycombe (1:52). I also reduced my 10k time from 52 to 46 and nearly ran 5k under 22 mins (22:03).

Targets for 2005
1st marathon - FLM
Half under 1:45
10k under 45
5k under 21
Meet at least one forumite at a race.

I try not to count the miles. It scares me!

At the start of the year I planned on doing
Ironman Lanzarote (sub 13hrs - achieved 12:38.18) and then retiring from all things physical.

But once that was out of the way, I thought I'd have a go at a marathon, seeing as I had some endurance training under my belt. Entered Robin Hood and started training hard, the IM eventually caught up with me and I fell apart just before the marathon and had to pull out at 18 miles 'cause I was completely and properly knackered.

Took me a while to get over that and then I set my sights on improving my 5k-10 mile times got pb's in all distances;
5k - 18.41
5 mile - 31.45 (this was before IM)
10k - 38.28
10 mile - 64.52

2004 was my first year of fell racing and xc, so that's two other "things to do" crossed off the list.

Total mileage 1027


Still have to finish a marathon without walking (time not important)

want to run all races upto 10 mile @ 6 min/mile pace;

5k - 18.37 (do able)
5 mile - 29.59 (possible)
10k - 37.17 (maybe)
10 mile - 59.59 (unlikely, but I'll try)

total mileage - 2000+. If I want to reach my goals it will need to double from 2004.

Targets 2004 were

17th County Champs XC;
competed even tough I was ill :-(

City Pier City half marathon sub 76min;
real tough winds spoilt my chances but finished 4th in the open race so a good result, time 1:23 my slowest 1/2 of the year!
I did run 78min later in the year at Leige on a very hot day, both performances worth around 76min on better days :-)

Amsterdam marathon sub 2:40 or a PB;
Was in shape for around 2:42 on race day but suffered a stitch but still PB'd with 2:47

2005 will be;

18th County Champs XC

10K on 3rd May [not sure which one yet!]
Kilnjenburg 15K beginning of June

Amsterdam Marathon October sub 2:40;
This is the one big target of the year :-)

Oh & get my Sports Massage diploma

Mileage for the year?

I'll tell you tomorrow! ;-)
30/12/2004 at 08:05
I'll have to come back tomorrow too with my mileage:o)

Number of races this year:22

Main targets for the year were to get sub 70 for 10 miles, sub 3:15 for the marathon to earn a Championship place at FLM and to be first vet in my club championships.

Achieved targets with 68:02 for 10 miles and 3:14:47 for the marathon. Also, I've won club vet prize for club championships.

Achievments not aimed for at the beginning of the year but came as training progressed.
5k pb 20:02-next year sub 20!:o)
10k pb 41:36
5 mile pb 33:34
1/2 marathon pb 1:32:09 on an extremely windy day and an undulating course.

2005 targets
FLM sub 3:14 from Championship start.
5k sub 20
1/2M 1:30
Complete all 10 County League races as I've always missed one!
30/12/2004 at 08:46
I started the year with 2 targets

Sub 3.30 FLM (miserably failed, ill, unmotivated and really shouldn't have been there)

Sub 2.30 Olympic Tri (2:28!) (Carp swim, carp run, but I can always make up for it on the bike leg)

Completely failed to acheive any pbs, but then again I haven't set any since 1999 so I think it's time to move on to other things.

Mileage for the year - 1493.5 (but 2 days left)
Bike mileage for year - 1271.3 (April - September only)
Swimming for year - 46,470m
Snowboarding hours approx. 200

This year's challenges

Finish my MA!

To compete in first BoarderX race in March
To survive first snowboarding freestyle comp in March.
Get sub 1:05 for 25 miles on the bike in a TT
Get racing licence, do first proper bike road race
To get a few placings in local fell races

But most of all...

... to enjoy myself

Hilly, you had such a fab year!

Counting up the mileage? Good idea - could take me a day or so:)

Targets were...

1. Sub 2:45 marathon. Did 2 of these (2:42.35 and 2:42.10) but I think there's more to come there.

2. Win Barnsley AC Club Championship - done

3. Win Barnsley AC Points League with maximum 300 points - done

4. Run pbs at other distances - only done this for 1 mile (4:59.6) and 3000m (9:41)

2005 Targets

1. Sub 2:40 FLM

2. 10k and HM pbs - either early doors (Brass Monkey HM 23rd Jan and Dewsbury 10k 6th Feb) or in the autumn (Selby HM and Leeds Abbey Dash 10k).

3. Run more miles than this year (whatever that may be):)

4. Barnsley AC Club Championship

5. Get back to racing weight (seem to have gained 6lbs from somewhere):(

Targets for 2004 - do a half (did 3) and a marathon (did 2).

Mileage for year - I only started counting in June and for the last 6 months of the year - about 525, so I guess about 900-1000 for the year.

Targets for 2005 -
1. to do more than 1500 miles
2. to improve my marathon time from 4.58
3. to improve my half time from 2.12
4. to improve my 10k time from 54 something

That's enough I think!!
30/12/2004 at 09:10
Haven't logged anything properly since GNR but my weekly average started off at about 12 miles/week and finished at GNR on about 30 miles.

Since then, most of the time apart from the last month has seen about 24 miles/week.

If I gave a rough guess, I'd imagine my total mileage to be up in the high 900's at least which is quite a scary thought in itself.

And next year I've got a bleedin Marathon to train for. Arghhhhh! ;o)
30/12/2004 at 09:30
good thread
reading these targets and achievements is both humbling and encouraging

my 2005 targets are very low by comparison but meaningful to me at least

- to lose 3 stone (i have 6 to lose in all)
- sub 40 5k (current pb 52)
30/12/2004 at 09:37
2004: getting into training! Only targets were to run & to compete in a variety of races. No idea of total mileage!

2005 targets:
5k in under 25 mins
10k in under 52 mins
half mara in under 1:59
take part in XC next winter
attempt a marathon & finish it
not to let mileage drop below 20mpw even in December when I'm knackered (i.e. get out 5 days a week even if it's for a jog round the block).

Happy New Year!

2004 - not nmany miles done - still a bit stop start:O(

2005 aims:

1/ join club

2/ break my racing duck

3/ 0ver 800 miles training
30/12/2004 at 09:53
My aims for 2004 were:

1. Give up football (too injury prone) - Only played twice but now "retired".

2. Get good base training - have done a few hundred miles in 4 months.

3. Stay injury free - at last!! Lots of slow runs with the odd quick one in there.

My aims for 2005:

1. Complete Marathon

2. Set PB for 10 miles

3. Keep running without injury

4. Do 1000 miles and enjoy them!!
30/12/2004 at 09:56
2004 targets:

get round Foulees de la Soie - done, finished 7 out of the 11 races, wished that had been 11 out of 11 races, but training had been difficult due to an exceptionally difficult year. Part of the achievement was simply having the neck to come last and be proud of it.

PB: half, 2:08. All time best, even going back twenty years, pre paralysis.

2005 ambitions:

sub 4:30 mara
sub 2:00 half

but given the present circs, avoiding being on sticks might be a more reasonable goal.

However, being reasonable never got me anywhere particular, so let's stick with my old (pre bl@@dy GP letter) goals.
30/12/2004 at 09:58
you are a marvel Stickless(and I don't mean tin of powdered milk!):O))
