Fa la la la laaaaa…. Merry Christmas everybody, what better time to evaluaty my goals for 2015.
3 months ago my quarterly evaluation could be better, 6 months ago my halfyear evaluation wasn’t all that better, let’s see what the end evaluation is…
(Three quarters failed to be written up, so it’s a bigger leap than last posts…)
2 ultra distances
From one I was certain: my 6h race I did in July.
This was one of my major goals for 2015 and it went … well enough (click the link for an elaborate review.
The plan was doing another ultra somewhere near december, but starting from mid November sickness and lack of motivation got the better of me, so it seemed for a while I wouldn’t be running another ultra soon.
But suddenly an event called ‘Warmathon’ appeared, this was 5h of running in every province’s capital.
I wanted to join in Brugge, but did’t know my current form… However I wanted to run the full 5h, even though I decided to take on a slow pace. So last monday I ran about 52km (See Strava). I plan to dedicate a full post to this one in the near future…
+2500km of running
Hooray, according to Endomondo I have now 2646km (~1644 miles), so not only did I make it, I feel like I’ve crushed it.
Very very happy with my progress across the years.
Break distance record (currently ~57km)
July 11 I ran the 6h of Aalter and ran the furthest and longest time I ever did for now.
Separate post here with all the details.
Still very proud of this achievement!
Break duration record (currently 5:51)
See above 🙂
- PB on the 5k Did not run any 5k race
- PB on the 10k Did not run any 10k race
- Marathon under 3:20 Nope, but PB’ed (see below)
- Run a nice trail just to enjoy the scenery (chance is, I’ll already get this at the end of January)
I did the last one with Trail Du Mont and did it again with Trail Des Fantomes in August.
Not a goal, but notable:
PB Marathon: ~3::23 at the end Of October with my brother.
PB Half Marathon ~1:30 at the end Of October with my brother.
Although I always think I don’t run a lot of races, it seems that my 2015 was filled with races I’lll remember for a very long time!
Running-wise it was DEFINITELY a great year.
Still thinking about the 2016 goals, so it could be they only get written up after New Year…
Did you achieve (almost) everything you wanted to achieve in 2015?
