at the beginning of 2016 i set myself some goals.
1. Run 1000km (621miles) In a year! Completed.
Just about did this one 1015km done this year with 5km parkrun should put at 1020km. Which would have got me to Verona in Italy.
2. Marathon, Completed
A lovely day in April in Brighton where i completed it in 4hrs 27minutes (a time i will never forget) Shame my running has never been the same since.
3. Half Marathon Sub 2hrs, Fail
My plan was to try for this after my marathon, but never entered a half or felt i could as legs where too painful.
4. Sub 23 Minute parkrun, Fail!
I think maybe this is never going to happen, i reached my peak speed! (23mins 35seconds)
5. Cycle to work, Fail
To cycle the 60km's or so into London. I think i could do this tomorrow, well maybe the Sunday when there is no traffic. But watching to many youtube videos has put me off cycling in london in rush hour.
6. 50 parkruns - Completed.
this one was maybe the easiest just turn up and your soon get your red t-shirt. (apart from i had to wait two months, i may have lost weight but i am never gonna fit in a small!)
I dont need goals this year, I need to start doing more lunges and stretching and other such things. I need to make sure i dont get an injury again so i can carry on running and you never know maybe do a marathon or ride London 100 miler. I could if i wanted to do a longer triathlon but that means learning to swim better.
Hope you all had a great 2016 and may 2017 be even better!
P.S. maybe one goal, more bling then 2016!
