It took me ages to come up with that dynamic thread title - I really should have enlisted the help of digger to come up with something catchy or snappy.
Anywhooo, am stuck with it now.
When I started my log last year, my goal was the adidas race series half marathon - the though of doing 13.1 miles was a definite challenge. The more I ran, the more races I did, the more training logs I read, the more I began to enjoy, even love running, so the goalpost changed during the Summer when I signed up for DCM.
Here are my past PB race times plus my goals for this coming year.
5k 23:40 (Mizuno feet first 5k Killarney 13.11.10) sub 23
5m 39:48 (Adidas race series ) sub 40 (a proper sub 40)
10k 52:03 (Dunshaughlin 10k June '10) sub 50 (fingers crossed)
10m 1:28:12 (adidas race series) no goal really
half marathon 1:56:58 (adidas race series) sub 1:50 - optimistic perhaps...
marathon 4:11:24 (DCM) sub 4hr
I suppose the ones I'm more interested in are the 10k, the half and the marathon, the others not so much.
Anyway my next focus is on the Waterford half. Haven't a goal in mind yet, would love to do sub 1:50 but don't think that is possible at the mo, 1:55 would be nice.
