Really tried to push more today after Sunday’s long run, speed is something that I really need to work on this year and I am hoping I can really get used to running at pace. Will be a nice pace on the way home today.
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 with a Christmas works party being in London the night before, I take the opportunity to go for a nice run around London before heading back on the train.
This run was very nice indeed with the temp being perfect and not many being around at that time of the morning, a bonus in being able to re-run some of the Marathon route also.
Plus I was able to complete the 500 mile’s on these shoes and nice end to their service.
Nothing like fitting a Half Marathon race when training for a full Marathon. Really pushed it in the last few miles to make it more of a race than a easy long miler.
Happy with how everything went and got a PB for Half also.
After the horrid slog beginning in the week this was a nice pick me up.
What better way to start your day off than a early morning run around your town, legs must of stayed in bed, it was a hard slog towards the end and at one point wasn’t sure if I was going to do it.
On days like these (not the song) you really need the mental attitude to really push for pain etc.
