I’ve been thinking about goals for 2016 recently. There’s a few specific things I want to accomplish :
Complete the Thames Path 100
Set a new 100 mile PB
With a current PB of 23:34:08 (in my only 100 mile finish), I’m hoping I can knock a good chunk off that time (at the Thames Path 100)
Set a new 50 mile PB
I set a new 50 mile PB last year as part of the Autumn 100. I think I can better that in a straight 50 mile race (Thames Trot in Feb)
Complete a Half Marathon in under 90 minutes
I’ve run a bunch of half marathons, and my best so far is 94 odd minutes – however that was a canal towpath run with a short wait for a swing bridge to close, and one of my first runs back after the Thames Path 2013 – so a bit of focused speed training should get me under 90 mins.
Run at least 2016 miles in 2016
I managed 2014 in 2014, but failed pretty miserably in 2015 (only managing 1600 odd) due to lack of consistency. I’d like to get back to standard 40-50 mile weeks, week in week out.
