Last night I decided what my running goals for 2016 would be. I've listed them in the sidebar. There's just three. It's enough. There's plenty running in there. I have a short term goal each month and two long term goals.
To do 1,000k by the end of the year I'll have to average 20k a week which is not much more than I'm doing at present. So it's achievable if I can keep going and sticking to my present arrangement of 3 runs a week with two rest days together. I'll just have to think carefully about how I space out the different runs as I follow the Run The Edge 13.1 plan.
The monthy 5k and 10k runs will sort of take care of themselves as I go along as they'll be automatically notched up before long as I get further into the 13.1 plan.
I'm quite excited about the goals now I've settled them. I can do them but they are more about
keeping going rather than over reaching myself too much.
This morning I did my Level 7 Day 3 of the 13.1 plan which was simply to run for 15 mins. So I added another 31/2 miles to notch it up to 5 giving me 20k for this week. So I'm under way already. With what I ran in January I've completed 10% of my goal. You can see it here. And click on 'My Activity Totals' at the top. Or on the photo on this post.
