Setting Small Goals

After reading this yesterday, I felt a little disheartened. Lance Armstrong improved his time by 13 minutes at the New York City Marathon.

13 minutes - Holy Cow!

(Well he is younger than me…and probably spends more training than I do sleeping.)
I took my times from a race that I’ve run 6 years in a row and made a graph. It shows major peaks and valleys.

My goal is to trim at least 15 seconds off last year’s time. (I will be 5 weeks into the Jack Daniel's running program.) This year it will be a chip timed race! So no worries about starting at the back of the crowd.
A small goal I know, but as you get older these are easier to achieve.
