Firework’s, drink and sing song to see in the New Year being completed it’s now time to focus on the New Year and to have a think about what I want to achive this year with my running.

Having failed to meet my targets for running last year and have a real late surge after injury I am pretty pleased where I was towards the end with a 6 week pick me up to get back in shape for a half marathon in October which really did help me focus and proved how much I can get done if I put my mind to it. Now with London seeming a distant memory and injury seeming to be all forgotten I will reintroduce my plans for goals for this year.

5k – Under 20 min, 19 min would be ideal

10k – Low 40 mins

Half – In the 1hr 20 something band.

Not entering any full marathon’s, well that’s the plan so far, this year I am really going to try and focus on the above with the aim on getting to these goals by the end of the year!

Let’s see what happens and hoping that I can look back at this post with having achieved them.

Run on 2017 – See what I did there.

So due to this time of year and the fact I would be staying down for the night. I thought it would be ideal to combine a little run whilst being in London, plan was to run the finishing part of the marathon to see what the contrast would be like.

So during the works Christmas party I made sure not to go OTT and to get to bed early. This part of the plan worked and waking up at around 7am and getting ready also went well. What didn’t go well was getting a little lost and in the process ending up running 10k, but hey all part of the fun.

As you can see I went a little lower than had planned but made it work back to the hotel and still got in the end part of the marathon which was the main goal, it was great to run in a different area and I also ran in my new Asics trainers which I will be using for the London Marathon aswell a win, win.
