any kind of official competition! If you have one planned/coming up, post it here so people know what's on the map.

Great Idea for a thread. Love it. It can be any type of competition weightlifting, bodybuilding competition  :P or basketball.

yup! exactly. this thread promotes more official competition, whatever that may be, and also encourages us to list out our future competitions in one spot so that we can more easily put someone's training into context -> if they have a competition listed here. It's easy for someone to list a future competition in their journal and then it disappears into the "previous pages ether". But if we post that stuff here as well, much easier to find.

peace!

Harbour Club Serpentine Last Friday of the Month 5k -> 26th Jan, i.e. next Friday.

If I like it + the organisation, etc., I might try to run it monthly rather than doing Parkruns, since this is more convenient and on a nicer course.

I think that's it for now. Need to build up more fitness before I'll feel like I'm actually racing at 10k or longer.

Also put your results in here too when you do the competition. Maybe quoting the competition you did.

Just updated my original race schedule post. Added another half marathon on February 18, which I won't take "as seriously" -> using it as a learning experience for the Coral Springs Half Marathon, which I want to place top 3 in. Started picturing myself training for Coral Springs so much, then just having a crap race because of something simple I overlooked (like not drinking water at a stop, or having some energy gel or something), who knows. So, going to try and figure that stuff out in that Publix A1A half.

:D

How did I forget to bump this with the A1A half? fail!

well that turned out great.. smart move to get a half in before the half I really care about.

A1A half: http://www.adarq.org/progress-journals-experimental-routines/adarq's-journal/msg139373/#msg139373

1:27:11 with tons of PR's!

just edited my OP, added a 5k & 10k - don't care style!

the fun thing is, i'm going to turn both of those into long runs:
1. 5k whatever + hilly long run
2. 10k hard + 10k mod (doubling back on the course lol!)
- runlikeagirl signed up and will attempt this with me. it's more of a half marathon training run -> practicing starting hard then being able to try and hold on to a solid moderate pace.

cool.
