Once I posted the comment of course I immediately regretted it. And then Brad went and saw it and commented we would be able to provide accountability for each other. Crap. I guess now then I am committed.
So, here are my self imposed rules –
- one 5k every week. Yes, that is 52 x 5k’s
- 24 minutes or under. (60 seconds grace for January only – I have only ever twice ran under 24 minutes)
- It can be on the treadmill, down a hill, on the flat, a split in a longer race, it just has to be done
- It can be a race.
- Late spring, I will sign up for a 5k race, shoot for a PR and adjust my required weekly time target to within 30 seconds of that race time. In the fall, I will race another 5k and adjust again
