I'm about 30 minutes off achieving this atm; let's see how near I can get by the end of the year!

My current time is now 80 mins and I use to do 65 consistently but far away from that, but will go back to working on it

This is one of my longer-term goals for 2020. I've got a long way to go before I get near the hour mark run

Big stretch goal for me too, first is 50 (where's the percent on this thing) wava (so 31:4x parkrun) then 30min parkrun. At about 32:30 parkrun at the mo!

I've got sub 29 at parkrun so hopefully soon (if i don't fall apart). Although i have to find an actual race! Next planned is a hilly 12.5 km - doubt if I'll hit sub 60 anywhere in that.

You are close to achieving it this year, Dvorak and JC 😃

This is a big aim of mine. I don't think there's any chance of it happening this year (current PB 1:09:13; managed a 28:42 5k once but currently more like 31ish) but I'd love to achieve it by the end of 2021. We'll see!

Hi sparklecloud, I think you'll get there, quite possibly sooner than you think. Had a look at your training, couple of long ones - your half training? And a fair bit of walking. If all goes well at Inverness and after, looking good for a solid 10K pb in April.

To be nosy, big jump in mileage! Is that right, or were you not logging everything before?

I ran 30:20 from the line in a ridiculously hilly parkrun on Saturday (146m of climb, according to FE. Maybe actually a wee bit less.). My above mentioned hilly race is this Sunday, in probably howling weather. Then to find something flat, I think. It will be a relief.

Declaring myself in this group. Not sure when or how this will happen, but I'd like to give it a go and training for 2 half marathons in 2020 might make it feasible.

I have run sub 60 in my early running days, but not for a long time. Currently struggling to break 30 mins at parkrun.

It's great to see this thread alive again. Welcome to sparkle cloud :)
I'm just sub 40 at 5k atm but hoping to make a significant dent in that this year so I'd like to be 1:05 for 10k by the end of the year and sub 60 will be next year's target.
