Last week, we talked goals. This week, we are on to races.
Not much more to say, except to get on to the business of it - this table will update as races are added (and, most probably, cancelled) over the course of the year:
|Chase the Moon Olympic Park 5k||24 Feb||18:59||Goal is a PB, which makes it a bit hazy.|
I have no official 5k PB time, so anything will do.
Parkrun PB is 19:19
Strava claims I've run 19:06
|The Big Half||25 April||1:27:30||I'd be happy to run this at Edinburgh goal pace, but that would be a full five minutes slower than the last time on this course.|
Aiming to better my 2020 time trial time.
|Edinburgh Marathon||30 May||3:10:00||Goal race number one. |
Aiming for fast enough to gain entry in Boston 2022.
|Asics London 10k||25 July||37:59||This is the most insane goal of any here, but I'm going to try to get under 38 minutes this summer.|
|Paddock Wood Half||5 Sept||1:26:30|
|London Marathon||3 Oct||3:00:00||Goal race number two.|
Aiming for the Good For Age target for New York 2022.
I'm not sure what to make of all that.
Based on my 10k times in late 2020, it seems a little weak - my 38:38 PB has equivalents of 18:38/38:38/1:25:31/2:58:27 - the plan has me slower on 3/4 of these at the end of 2021.
That said, I'm also planning to PB every single race I run this year, according to the table, so maybe it's plenty ambitious.
Let's go run.
