Happy 2009!!

Welcome to the New Year!!! We here at Team Cross wish you a wonderful and blessed 2009. It is hard to imagine what is going to happen in the new year, there is always so much potential with the beginning of a new year.

This is a good time to think about what is coming up and also to reflect on where your life is going.  I’ll be honest I haven’t thought too much about specifics for 2009 or really examined my goals from 2008.  I do know that I didn’t meet any of my time goals but I did PR in many races which is great.

What are your plans for 2009?

I’m currently planning on running both a spring and fall marathon although the details of both are still fuzzy. I would like to PR and break all of my time goals from 2008:

5K – sub 18:00

10K – sub 40:00

Half-Marathon – sub 1:30

Marathon – 3:10 (Boston Qualifying)

2008 Yearly Mileage

Running – 1374.2 miles or 177 hours or just over a week!

Biking – 1024.8 miles or 6 hours

Swimming – 2 miles

Have a wonderful new year!

    I think your 5k time seems fast in relation to those other goals. I would think if you could run a sub 18 minute 5k you would be running a low 37 minute 10k, not trying to break 40 minutes.

    Just curious?

    You are correct. McMillan's calculator agrees with you. My current post-college PR is a 18:19 and my 10K PR is 41:28. I used these numbers to pick my goals. I think to actually hit my 5k goal I'll need to do more speed work than I've been doing. I probably need to actually prioritize my goals…
