At the start of the year I set myself the following goals for 2020:
- See how much lower I could take my 5k PB below 28:38
- Get my 10k PB below one hour from 1:03:49
- Get my 10 mile PB below 1:45:00 from 1:49:29
- Get my Half Marathon PB below 2:30:00 from 2:30:23
I haven't really been doing anything specific towards reducing them, although on Monday, I did a sprint interval session and brought my 5k time down to 28:04.
I was meant to be running the Edinburgh Kilomathon tomorrow, which is a 13.1k run through the city, stating at Ocean Terminal and ending in Murrayfield Stadium. Alas, due to CORVID-19, this event, like so many others is currently on hold.
Since I wasn't going to be able to do that run, I decided to do my own thing today. Rather than run 13.1k, I decided to push on and go for 13.1 miles. The result; two more of my goals achieved. My 10 mile PB now stands at 1:44:54, and my Half Marathon PB is down to 2:21:21. My 10k PB still remains stubbornly on 1:03:49 and flatly refuses to budge any lower, but am I letting that deflate mt sense of achievement in any way? Not even a little bit...
