When I first started running last October, I had aimed to end up running a 5k distance in around 25 minutes – I thought that would be a reasonable achievement. If just my results from the same 5k course in Princes Park, Liverpool are considered then I am now running 9 minutes faster over the 5k distance compared to back in October 2011. Not a bad statistic. I now want to have a 5k finish time that starts with a 1. I’ll give myself 18 months to achieve a sub-20:00 finish.
