Ultimate Running Date #43

It’s a new month, in a new year, you know what that means! Running Date.

Strap on those shoes that you got from Santa, and let’s go running!

Running in 2017 for me was a roller coaster.  Starting off the year injured I had no idea how I was going to perform.

That’s why I set a goal just to enjoy the run, and that I did.

Gold Rush 2017

My last event for the year was Gold Rush.

It was hot (I ran in just my crop), but I had so much fun.

I ran slower than I did at Surf Coast, but I put that down to the heat.

That and I was less motivated because of the warmer weather.

Overall Running Statistics

Monthly Average – 121.51km

Not bad considering the first 3 months of the year were really low while learning to run again.

So what’s in store for 2018?

My plan is to transition back to road races and have a crack at breaking my half-marathon personal best.  It currently stands at 1h49m23s, which was done at Run Melbourne in 2013.

The goal is a sub 1h45m half marathon (5:00 pace).  The first race to tackle this Canberra in April.

Right now, I’m just having fun with running and having a play with different types of sessions.

Training for Canberra starts at the end of January.
