It’s that time of year where everyone is looking forward to 2018 and thinking of New Years Resolutions or Goals. I’ve been thinking of some myself, just like I did in 2017. This time though I’ve made running specific goals and have yet to decide if these will be my focus or if I’ll set some life goals too.
Here’s what I’m hoping will come out of my running in 2018.
I finally managed to get my 5K time to under 45 minutes and now it’s time to strive for the next goal. I chose 40 minutes, but with a whole year to work on this I might get closer to 35. I thought about adding 30 minutes in there but right now that seems practically impossible!
At the minute I’m only really running a parkrun on the seafront or running on the treadmill at home. I need to get outside more and run on a variety of terrains as this will help my running. By attending the club nights with Gosport Road Runners I’m hoping this will help with this goal.
To simply survive the 10 mile long Great South Run in October is the main goal. To complete it in 2.5 hour or less is the secondary goal.
So far I’m signed up for two races in 2018. I’d like to sign up to a few more. It’ll help me get some practice in before the dreaded GSR!
Are you setting any goals for 2018?
