More goal setting

The truth is that 2011 hasn’t been a great year for my running. In recent weeks, I’ve lost my running mojo and I need to refocus! So, here’s my attempt.

My current PBs are:

  • 1 mile: 6:56
  • 5K: 23:53 (flat) 25:21 (not so flat!)
  • 10K: 49:49
  • Half marathon: 2:01:31

I suspect that I’m not as close to 60% age grading as I’d like to be but here are the anticipated race times for that %

  • 1 mile: 06:43
  • 5km: 23:17
  • 5 mile: 38:28
  • 10K 48:27
  • 10 mile: 1:19:22
  • Half marathon: 1:45:18

I’m hoping to get close to 1:20 at the Great South Run at the end of the month but anticipate that 1:30 is closer to reality. Plan to try and get sub 24 at Saturday’s Eastleigh parkrun with help from a pacer. If I manage that, maybe 1:20 is within my grasp! We’ll see!!

As for 2012, I’d like to improve my age grading to 65%. That’s some challenge.

Here are the goal times:

  • 1 mile: 06:42
  • 5 km: 21:29
  • 5 miles 35:31
  • 10K: 44:43
  • Half marathon: 1:37:12

An impossible dream? Hopefully not. Just need to work out how to turn that dream into reality!
