No Pussyfooting, I have decided is going to be the slogan I take into 2013.
Well, certainly for the last two years, due to injury, illness and my tendency to be side- tracked, any targets I have set myself have been, for want of a better way of putting it - fickle.
Things seem at last, to be starting to move in a positive direction with regards to my running. So rather than wait I am setting my targets for 2013 now.
I have decided to split my targets into A and B races, with any other races I do being treat as C races and used as part of my build up to the A races.
Also because I like to do something different now and again and hence often become side tracked I am building this into my targets for the year also, classified under 'other' I will have an A and a B target.
I have also kept the number of targets down to a minimum but also tried to structure them in a way that will compliment each other and allow, as far as possible, for the training to be progressive.
So no more pussyfooting about - my targets for the next 14 months are:
1 The BMAF Cross - Country Championships - March 2013
2 The Yorkshire Wolds Half Marathon - July 2013
3 The BMAF Marathon Championships - October 2013
The Blaydon Race - June 2013
A target - Climb Mount Kilimanjaro - January 2013
B target - Run the length of Hadrian's Wall within 24 hours date TBC
