Sub-20 Goal for 5k (2012) (Read 5406 times)

    Over in the 2011 thread, MichiganFlyer suggested that somebody else start the 2012 thread for folks who will be attempting to run sub-20 in the 5k this year, so I'm taking him up on it.

     

    I ran 21:12 in October, and I've been running pretty consistently lately, so I'm planning to get there in 2012.

     

    Who else is in?

    It should be mathematical, but it's not.

      I'm in.  Ran 20:57 last year, so I think this is realistic.  

       

      First crack at it will be on January 28, SPSP 5k in San Diego.  

      "Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn.  Climb that goddamn mountain."

      Jack Kerouac

        I am in!  This is the first goal on my list for 2012.  Current PR is 21:02.

        2014 Goals

        Weight - 200 lbs (stuck around 211)

        2000 miles (1190 as of July 1)

        Work on stretching and flexibility (doing so much better at this!)

        Stay healthy for Boston 2015 (have a BQ -9:00 time) - check!

        Marathon - 3:10 (Goal Race in October)

        HM 1:29:59 (Goal race in July)

        10k - 39:59 (no goal race yet)

        5k - 19:30 (goal race July 4)

         

          Sign me up! In November I set my current PR at 21:11. I don't have my first 5k scheduled yet but I'm sure I'll have a handful of opportunities to go for the sub-20 in 2012.

            CliveF (race TBD)

             

             

            This was a goal in 2011, but an injury derailed things.  Back on track now (hehe) and hoping for big things in the coming year!

            “Everything you need is already inside.” -- Bill Bowerman

              I'm in!  Ran a 5K a couple of weeks ago in 20:35, so this is definitely on my list for 2012.  Current PR from 2009 is 19:29.  Right now, I'm about 3 months into coming back from a six month layoff.  I've done some base building, and now I'm in week 3 of a Daniels plan, trying to build some speed since I've never done much speed work.  Will do a HM in March, but I don't expect that to interfere with  the 5K effort or vice versa.

                I'm in!  20:05 last Saturday.  Going to run a Half Marathon on 3/18 and I'm hoping that will force me to get higher weekly miles for a late Spring attempt.

                 

                Thanks for starting the thread Troy!Smile

                2012 Goals: 1:35-ish Half Mary ->(result 1:38:40).  Bust the sub 20 5k barrier (19:54!!!!) and whoop the 1000 mile bunny (ok, bunny, you win).


                Prince of Fatness

                  I'm interested.  I ran 19:59 early in 2010 and have been fighting injury ever since.  Things are getting better, as I was able to run a 21:24 last weekend.  I probably won't be focusing on this until summer or fall.

                   

                  Thanks for doing this, Troy.

                    ... and me.

                     

                    I ran 20:42 in 2011 having chopped 3 mins off over the course of the season. No goal race in mind, just generally getting fitter and faster and hoping that that will carry over into faster times at all distances. Last year was my first proper foray into quality work and I probably have a lot to learn about optimising quality workouts, but I found mile intervals at a controlled pace, steady tempo run at threshold and some 400s worked fairly well.

                     

                    Winter so far is base building with only one session per week of tempo work as part of a bike/run brick.

                      I'm in too. Best 5K 2011 was 21:16  First 5K will be in April. Thanks.

                        Sign me up. My so called "PR" of 21:56 was set by deciding to run hard the last 2.1 of a 3.1 run around the neighborhood.

                        I'm training for a March marathon and hope to take that base into some shorter races in the spring/summer.

                          I am probably going to give it a whirl (again).   I have been trying for the last 2 yrs.  Best I've done is 21:00. 

                          The kiss goodnight, it comes with me,
                          Both wrong and right, our memories. 
                          The whispering before we sleep,
                          Just one more thing that you can't keep.

                          Our favorite place we used to go,
                          The warm embrace that no one knows.
                          The lovin' look that's left your eyes,
                          But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.


                          Prince of Fatness

                            I've posted this before, but it's worth posting again.

                             

                            It was not directed at me, but the advice in this post was very helpful in getting me to my sub 20.

                              I'm in too. Ran 21.45 in October. Been running since February after a 20 year absence. (oldest son is 20!)

                                I'm in too! My pr is 20:51 from this past June.  I'm looking to up my mileage over the next couple months for a spring half and I'm hoping that will get me to sub 20 for the Hillsborough Hop on June 5th.

                                2014 Goal: Run faster than 3:37:07 in the NYC Marathon
