Start of plans for 2007
I will not be racing again in 2006. So it is time for a re-valuation and re-setting of goals. Looking at my 2006 targets for specific distances, none of my goals for 1500m thru Half Marathon were achieved! But the goals needed to be there to give me something to work towards.

I am setting new targets to March 2007. My races in January thru March will be 1500m, 3000m, 5000m, and possibly a 10000m. The targets are faster, because I am expecting (hoping on reasonable evidence) that I will get fitter and not fatter.

1500m was aiming at 5:20; now aiming at 5:17
3000m was 11.15 now 11.09
5000m was 19.10 now 19.00
10000m was 39.30 now 39.15

2. The official results are incomplete and don't show all individual times or who set records. Obviously the M50 team didn't set a record, because there is an M35 runner in the team. The first M45 team smashed their national record; as did we old 55s and I believe the M65s as well. The W65 and W70 runners would have established national records I expect. I am surprised no M60 team ran; that age group is quite strong now. If they had Kevin Chamberlain, Des Brown, Kent Williams, and Garry Hand, for example, they would have beaten the M55s! No younger women's teams too is a bit disappointing.
