2013 Targets

Posted: January 20, 2013 in Uncategorized

Its taken me a while to workout which challenges I want to test myself against this year, below are the races I will be targetting:

March 2nd – The White Cliffs 100, organised by Saxon Shores Ultra Trails http://ultra-trails.com/white-cliffs-100/ Its a new 100 mile run, I’m keen to support new races and this event took my fancy towards the middle of last year when it was first advertised.

April 26th – 24 mile swim in 24 hours organised by http://2swim4life.com/ This challenge attracted my attention acouple of weeks ago, swimming is my least favourite of things to be doing however the format is different to anything I have done and will provide new training challenges.

July 3rd – Thames Ring 250 mile run. Organised by http://www.tra-uk.org/thames-ring This event has been on my to do list since I found out there was a race longer than the GUCR in the UK.

Sept 27th – Enduroman Lands End to Dover Triple – Organised by http://www.enduroman.com/enduroman-lld/4566108366 p:// This will be the first time a Point to Point Triple Enduroman has taken place in the UK it promises to be a great challenge and Im really excited about this one.

Training has been abit hit and miss the last two months, however I did finish the year off well, albeit having a DNF at The Piece of String Fun Run I was very pleased to have reached 97 miles, it was agreat event, organised by http://www.centurionrunning.com/ I then ran strongly at The Portsmouth Coastal Marathon finishing in a respectable time of 3.12. The next few months will be interesting in terms of training, I will be approaching the races like I always do with a well thought out plan to execute, as with everything I have done, completion is always my main priority anything else is a bonus.
