New exercise goals

Having completed my first organised half-marathon on Sunday (9/9/18), I am now moving on to a few new excercise goals. In part because of the cold I had in the week leading up to my half-marathon I was dissapointing unable to acheive a PB, missing out by around 2 minutes. 1hr 47m:00s vs 1hr 45m:16s. Therefore a new half-marathon PB is still one of my goals, however, having spent the last couple of months focusing on longer runs in the build-up to this event it will be nice to be able to spend a little bit more time on shorter distances.

I am now looking at spending the next month or so trying to lower my 5km PB to below 20 minutes, it currently sits at 21m:04s. Along with this I would like to spend a bit more time in the gym doing some strength work as this has been a little bit on the back-burner for the last few weeks. For a while I have toyed with the idea of getting into yoga as a way of improving my flexability. For a stretch, to take me through to the new year I will look at improving my 10km PB as well, currently 45m:13s. Before again taking part in RED January to kick off 2019.
