5 Goals for 10 for Texas


I’m linking up for the Friday Five and the topic for this week is fitness.

This weekend I will be running in the Memorial Hermann 10 For Texas race in The Woodlands, TX.  This is a 10 mile race and will be my first ever at that distance.  Like I always do, I have come up with some goals for the upcoming race.

10 for TX

  1. Start out slow (don’t crash and burn in the beginning) … run a reverse split race.
  2. Be confident… don’t let race anxiety overwhelm me.
  3. Time goals … I have an A, B, and C goal.  C goal – 1:43; B goal – 1:40, A goal – 1:38.
  4. Execute on fueling and hydration strategy used during training runs.
  5. Have fun!

What types of goals do you set for a race?

I’m linking up with Eat Pray Run DC, Mar on the Run and You Signed Up For What for the Friday Five link up.

    I’m still working on my goals for my half! I don’t really have time goals — it’s going to be very warm, so I think a PR is pretty much out of the question. So I’m working on others — like negative splits, which would certainly be nice, except then there’s the heat again . . . like I said, still working on it!

    Good luck & run happy!

      I hear you on the heat! Thankfully we had a nice fall-like weekend, but we are back to summer for the foreseeable future.

    I hope your race went well! These are great goals – I like the idea of 3 time goals.

      It went better than I thought. I adapted the 3 time goals from another blogger, I really liked the idea too.
