2013 Goals (Read 581 times)


    I don't think we have a 2013 goals thread yet... if we do, my bad. Smile


    If we don't, well, post 'em here!  And go!

    Do you even run?


      1500 miles.  I put down 1000 in the 2013in2013 game, but I'm adjusting my goal to 1500.  I just need to stay focused, and uninjured.


      Half marathon - just finish!

      27 minute 5k (challenge accepted, LRB!)


      Work on my self confidence.


      More FE's!

      Do you even run?


        I would like to run a marathon < 3:25 by the end of the year.

          2500 miles for 2013

          Asthma free runs and races

          Continue the string of PRs

          It's always fucking hot in Miami!


            I haven't run 26.2 in 3 years so want at least 1, plus 100+ miles a month. 100 miles for me just means I wasn't too banged up. I had 10 of those this year but will still hit or come close to 1,500.


            I signed up for my first half in 10 years which I'm looking forward to. I have done 8 marathons but only 1 half so also hope to run at least 2 of those.

              Remain uninjured.

              Remain consistent.

              Run my first full marathon in May.

              Run my first half(a double half) in September.

              Ride a bike race on both my road bike and my fat bike.

              Run a sub 6:20 mile(my last "Lincoln Mile" race time was 7:21). I accidentially ran a 6:51 in a 5k race in October, so I know I have faster in me.

              Run over 2013 miles in 2013.

                I think I put 1200 miles up for the miles game. I'd like to beat that.

                Run my first marathon (finish).

                Run a few more half marathons and PR on at least one.

                PR in the 5k.

                Run my first ultra (12 hour race).

                Don't get hurt!




                  Remain injury free

                  Get up to 30mpw again

                  Do a few 5k and 10k races

                  Learn how to swim

                  Do more core and strength training

                  Running is my mental-Ctrl-Alt-Del. 


                    To control and enjoy my ... running.

                      • 2500 miles (a lofty goal)
                      • sub-20 5K
                      • 1:35 HM
                      • 3:30 FM (keep working towards a BQ)
                      • Stay healthy

                      I'd list a 10K PR as a goal too, but I think I'm going to crush that the next time I run one.



                        • 1200 miles
                        • Do mostly trail races
                        • Have fun
                        • Stay healthy

                        Mostly harmless

                          To stay uninjured and run a marathon < 4:00.

                            A good set of goals folks, here's my not to original ones - copied from others since they trigger my thoughts

                            • Remain consistent.
                            • To control my PTSD and enjoy my running.
                            • Finish at least 2 half marathons - first is 3M on 1/13/13
                            • Run 1000 mi if possible - missed in the last two years for a number of reasons
                            • Achieve normal BMI for first time in many, many years

                            2014 goals: keep on running! Is there anything more than that?

                              Some good goals here guys, it will be nice to see you achieve them.  Here are mine:


                              - Sub 2:00 half marathon

                              - Sub 25:00 5k

                              - Sub 53:00 10k

                              - Run more trail races

                              - Find "the right" pair of shoes


                              These goals are very conservative, because my right leg is retarded and desperately clings to runner's knee and PF.







                                Run 1200 miles

                                Run 2 HM - finish sub 2:00:00 on at least 1 HM

                                Run Marathon in Fall 2013

                                Go sub 26:00 for 5k

                                Go sub 54:00 for 10K

                                And keep enjoying running.
