I'm not sure yet Nellie...if I stay injury free then with any luck, and I'll find out tonight, there's the FLM in April which I may run with a club colleague to get her around in her target time.
Other than that as I say I'm not sure and will think about once I know about FLM.

My ultimate aim is to do a 3:30 flm but realistically expect a sub 4 hrs .I know there is a bit of a gulf between these times but in my first two flm's I ran in 5:17 (2005) and 4:20 (2006).
I'm also aiming for a 1:35 in a half marathon.:)

I haven't quite weighed the diet side of things off yet.So will hopefully keep improving there too.:huh:

I want to be able to run a sub 50minute 10km sometime during 2007.

Planning my first 1/2 marathon in March and would like to beat 2 hours.

well i have my two main races entered for next year already so...

end of may - grand union canal race - under 40hrs please
august (i think) - ironman UK - just a finish, time would be a bonus.

tempted by the MOB pennine duathlon still, relatively soon after the canal race but i should at least have some bike legs from the triathlon training this time.

also looking to get my marathon time closer to 3:30

seems likely i'll be tempted to do tooting 24hr race again in october too, which means 100miles would be the target.


good luck to all next year with your goals & PBs of whatever distance or time.
train for it & claim it :cool:

sub 16:20 5k
sub 34 10k
sub 1:15 half mara

may do a marathon later in year.

But most importantly is to hopefully continue to enjoy running and stay injury free.

I have booked myself into two 1/2 marathons :huh: one in Feb (Brands Hatch) which I am going to use as a training run not planning a pb but if get one will be very pleased and the other one in March (Silverstone)which I hope to gain a pb.

I will hopefully be entering into the Great North Run.:eek:

Good luck with all yours goals for 2007.

Also only started my running career in July 2006. So my aims are to run a 10K and a half marathon next year. The 10k is unplanned, but the half marathon I hope to enter is the Aviemore half in Scotland next summer. Since both will be first races, they'll both be PB's. I'm hoping to complete the 10k in under 60 minutes (I'm finding that really hard), and the half marathon is just to finish.

That's exactly what I'm aiming for too.

I've entered a 10k in January and the Edinburgh Half in April - I've also entered my 1st triathlon and I'm thinking of going for the Frankfurt Marathon in October.

I have the Bath Half Marathon in March and I hope to get round under 2:17 (this was my 1st attempt at a half this year), then the Bristol Half Marathon later on in the year where I aim to thrash Trinity !! :asleep: :p

Well as I'm in FLM (buggar!) my main aim is to crack 3:30 in that.
Next aim is to do a 1:30 1/2m.

All subject to keeping fit that is!

Get over a nasty little injury.
Get out running again.
Get fit. Get fitter.
Get fast. Get faster.
Get new pb's at 5 / 10 and half.
Get to the end of a marathon.

Are you listening Santa?

Steve, I can't help thinking you're not aiming high enough. Never, ever, did I want to do a sub 3.30 marathon. I ALWAYS wanted to run sub 3 hour - and it came, even though I was in my sixties at the time. So set your sights higher. A sub 3 hour is easy in the FLM. It's flat, fast, and a lot of good crowd support. Re-programme your brain for running at 6.45 pace. Do some intervals, repetitions, a few fast 10K's to increase your overall cruising speed, and long steady runs on weekends you're not racing. You don't need to do huge mileages, concentrate more on quality rather than quantity. Surely, if an old beggar like me could do it, it should be even easier for a young whippersnapper like you!
Cheers!
