2010 Running Goals Review

Let's see how I fared in my running goals for 2010 (and I just realized that I had two entries for Goal 3 hahaha):

Image source: www.block5design.com

1. Sub 30 5k
  • I first achieved this last April 4 in Resurrection of The Lord Parish's 5k race.  I finished in 28:45.
  • The following week, during the Mizuno Infinity Run, I raced another 5k and finished in 28:26.
  • Then the week after, at Solar TV's Earth Run, I raced again, and registered my Personal Best at 27:09.

2. Sub 60 10k
  • I joined a couple of 10k races, however, regret that I did't achieved this goal this year.
3. Sub 2:30 half marathon
  • I wasn't able to race a half marathon this year.  Most were treated as long runs.  Perhaps I'll race one in 2011.

4. Sub 5:30 marathon
  • My Condura Skyway Marathon 2010 finish of 5:55:13 made me feel good, that my 5:30 marathon goal for 2010 is achievable in the coming months. 
  • I regret that I pushed a little further, and aimed for a 5:00 marathon in Milo.  This made me suffer knee injuries.  Read here, here, and here.

5. Run a REAL international marathon
  • Let me rephrase this to: Run a marathon abroad
  • Career plans pulled this one off.  Perhaps 2011 is a good year to pursue this goal.

6. Stay injury-free for the whole year of 2010
  • I failed miserably in this department.
  • I'm now more cautious with my running form.
  • I now work on the gym to strengthen my quads and hamstrings to support my knees.
  • I'm also taking Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM to help repair my injury.

7. Recruit at least 10 individuals to discover the joys of running
  • I really am not sure how I fared on this goal.
  • If you think I inspired you to take up running this year, please let me know by placing a comment, thank you!

8. Be 10 to 15 lbs lighter
  • I also failed on this goal.
  • The closest I achieved was that I lose 3.6 lbs and 8.4% body fat.

9. Join at least one provincial race event
  • Thanks to the events of the Bald Runner and the Philippine Association of Ultrarunners, and I successfully achieved this goal.
  • There's Tanay 50k, P2P 70k, and T2N 50k

10. Run at least 1,500 kms for 2010
  • I'm 119.2 kms short of my goal, finishing only 1380.8 kms for 2010.
  • Total running time is 211:52:01 (equivalent to 8 days and 19 hours).

11. Join SWAC
  • I did last January.
  • And joined another aquathlon event last September.
  • Read here.

Overall, 2010 is a great running year for me.  For 2011, I will still have the same set of goals.  Hope I learn and achieve all this time.

Cheers to a great 2010!  And here's wishing you all the best for 2011!

Not all goals can be achieved within a year, since there are road blocks like work and injuries!

Kudos to your achievements. And well, for the failures, bawi nalang this year!

Happy New Year!
