I'm not suggesting you avoid disappointment by aiming too low but, still.....what do you manage to hack on your 10K or 10 mile-ers(races and not "runs", mind) -- VivienneMy only running race was a 5K after last year's Flying Pig at a 12:42 pace.My sole target right now is the half at the Flying Pig. While I may do other distances in races at some point in the future, that's not what I'm training for now.Last year, I walked the half marathon at the Flying Pig, after training for months to build up my stamina for it post-kidney cancer surgery. I was, of course, very slow and finished in about 3:20 or so. My aim is to beat that by a substantial amount this year.Although I've only reached the 6 mile run mark so far, I hope/expect to reach 13 miles in training well before the race in May and should be in decent shape (by my standards) to be able to keep it up in race conditions (although I may walk "the big hill"....we'll see).My goal, whether I achieve it or not, is to finish with a time of 2:45.... a pokey 12:36 pace. But I will finish, unless I have to be carried away. I won't do anything epic by runner standards, but it should be a substantial improvement for me!After that, we'll see. I'll probably focus on races near my home in Charlotte. Anything up to half marathon.Side benefits: * Between surgery, my earlier walking program, running... and now my Paleo diet, I've lost 36 pounds.* Goal: Lose maybe another 32 pounds, which will put me about 5 pounds over my post-college weight from 38 years ago.Disappointment? Not happening as long as I stay healthy.... and I'm trying to be careful to not hurt myself as I build up my stamina.Rob
