Marathon Trainers


2010 Goals (Read 130 times)


    I'm not guys go first.


      Ok, I'll start I guess.  Although my mojo isn't really there now I hope it returns so that I can have a year similar to last year:

      1) Stay healthy

      2) BQ while running Boston (3:35)

      3) Break 3:30 for marathon (stretch goal)

      4) 2000 miles for the year (although if I achieve #1, this should follow)

      5) Volunteer at least one race

      6) Run more with the local running club

        1*) Harass Dave mid-month if he has not yet ran 35 miles for the month.


        2) Not letting this running become a bigger goal than a happy family

        3) To restrain myself to a short/easy workout when I am tired or sore. This should also help with goal #1

        4) Enter a Swimming Event or Triathlon, Indoor, or as part of team. Do something I am scared to do.

        5) Run a 5K race with my son

        6) PR in a half marathon (PR in a 15mile race or marathon counts)

        7) PR in a marathon





          My goals are almost the opposite of Bugs'  (run even when I'm tired, don't let work and family crowd out running ..)


          OK seriously folks:


          -  Sustain not less than 70 miles in any given month this year.  No extended breaks.

          -  Train for and run one marathon

          -  PR in the HM distance

          -  More miles than last year

          -  Avoid running injuries

          I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it.


            1. Above all, continue to run without injury. Be diligent about cross-training.
            2. Race a marathon for the first time.
            3. Race well at the other distances, making a run at PRs in the half, 10k, and 5k.
            4. Balance the training load by maintaining at all times a weekly mileage base of around 30 miles per week.
            5. Run at least 1500 miles during the calendar year.
            I got more specific on the blog but this is the gist of it.
