Goals, goals, goals. Where to begin… Writing these down always makes them real. Right? It always makes me a little nervous writing them down because what happens if you don’t reach them? Did you fail?
Some of these might make sense to some. Some might not to others. Who knows, but here they are along with why I have set them this way. Anyway here goes nothing.
- 5K – 20:58 (6:44/mile)
- 10K – 43:33 (7:00/mile)
- Half Marathon – 1:40 (7:37/mile)
- Marathon – 3:45 (8:34/mile)
For the 5K, I really thought I was dialing into that last year. After my 5K in Naperville and the Shamrock Shuffle 8K in Chicago, averaging 6:45 seemed like it was well within reach. Unfortunately my calf issues started shortly after the 8K in April, and this meant I couldn’t get it done last year. I would really like to run faster, but this seems like a great place to start, so I guess we will see come this Spring.
