I posted these originally in the parkrun thread, as they were all related to my participation for the year. They’re probably just as suitable to track in this thread, so I’ll use @atb88’s update as an excuse for my own:
Parkrun Participation: At least ‘Bronze Level Obsessive’ - 30 parkruns in a year (NB: 40+ is silver, 50+ is gold).
Saturday’s aborted attempt was my first week of not completing parkrun this year, so I have 11 credits to date in 2019, including the New Year’s Day double. Well on track to complete this goal, although I’m not running on Saturday due to the plans for Sunday.
PB: Something in the 30’s by the end of 2019 (currently 46:56 as of 1/1/19). Would love to think sub-35 is achievable by then, but will be happy enough breaking 40 minutes.
I hit a plateau after New Years Day and didn’t improve my time until 23rd Feb, which is my current PB of 46:11. Still a long way to go on this one, but it should get easier to get faster as my weight drops further. It was a year-long goal for this reason.
Volunteering: At least 50 volunteer credits in 2019 (most of these will come from junior parkruns).
18 volunteer credits so far. Should hit this comfortably.
Milestones: Qualify for a 50 run shirt (currently on 16 after 1/1/19 double).
Halfway there, on 25 at the moment. Should get there in late autumn, barring any injury lay-offs.
Tourism: Participate in at least 5 different parkruns during 2019 (have already reached 2).
Still on 2, as have been running and volunteering at my home parkrun each week. Will plan to travel more in the summer months and take in a few new courses.
Non-parkrun Running: Complete at least 3 x 10k events during 2019 (NB: Have registered for 2 already, in March and May). Improve time by 10 minutes from first time recorded by end of year. (Bonus goal: Complete a 10k without walking during 2019)
The Bradford 10k takes place this Sunday, so I’m on track to complete the first one of 3 at last. I did a training run using intervals a couple of weeks ago to cover the distance, so that I had the knowledge of having done so ahead of time. It took me 1hr 45 minutes along the flat canal towpath to do this (miles 5 and 6 were noticeably slower than the first 4). Would like to target sub 1hr 40, but will just be happy to cross the finish line.
