The last month since the Colorado Marathon has been filled with quite a bit of running. I am working on getting faster, and just becoming a more well-rounded runner. I am hoping to hit some PR goals this summer like sub 24 minute 5K time...possible 23 minute if I keep progressing like I should. I also want to nail a half marathon in under 1 hour and 55 minutes. I have added speed work to my normal running and I am hoping it will make the difference.
Originally I said I was going to aim for a 4:10 marathon in New York in 2010. It is a difficult marathon compared with Colorado and so I figured that sub 4 hour might be a little too ambitious. After the last few weeks, though I have had a change of heart and have decided to make under 4:00 my gold standard. This will follow me over the next 22 weeks to see if I can get there in one of my favorite places....New York City!
