To resolute or not. Pt. 2

Monday, December 29, 2014

No question this time... this IS part 2! :)

My next goal is fitness related. I haven't ran much since my HM earlier this month, but I'm doing a New Years Day 5K on Thursday. Then on Saturday I'll start my new training! This new training is "Pick up the pace 5k/10k training" It will help me become a faster runner, WHICH is my next goal. *trumpets playing* emoticon

Right now I'm jogging at about a 13:30 - 13:00 minute miles. I CAN run faster, but not for long. So my goal for the Alamo Run Fest is to run an average of a 12 min/mile. The Alamo Run Fest is at the end of February and I'll be doing a 10K. If I'm not mistaken, that means I should finish, just shy of 75 minutes.

Now, to be fair, I'm honestly not sure if this is "attainable". I'm not sure if that's a reasonable time frame for increasing my speed. I suppose I'll know within a month. It should be though. Considering I'll be training with a group, and I'll be following a specific training schedule.

Thus far...

Goal #1 - No piles
Goal #2 - Run Faster

    Ifin I were a betting man, I'd put my $$ on your 12 minute-mile. In fact ... I AM a betting man.

    100 Spark points say you'll get there. :-)
    (I wish there was a way to transfer Spark Pts...wouldn't that be kidna cool.)
