- Run a decent half at Oakland on 3/27 - 7 weeks after Kaiser I am hoping to get into PR shape and do 1:23 something. This may be tough but I'll give it a shot.
- Run a marathon under 3:10 to get early qualification to Boston before September 12th. Now I am 45 my Boston time is 3:30:59 which is a pretty easy run for me, but in order to deal with the problem of Boston selling out in 8 hours they have changed the rules. People who beat the BQ by 20 minutes can register a week early. 2 days later they ope to people who beat by 10 mins, then 2 days later those who beat by 5 mins. Then, if it's no full they open to people who meet the qualification time. So for me, it's a 3:10 to get the early (i.e. guaranteed) entry. This should be easy enough if I pick a reasonable race, which I am still researching.
- Run a fall/winter marathon and PR (beat 2:58:13). Thinking California International Marathon (CIM) for this. It's first Sunday in December. I'd love to be shooting for 2:55 which I should be able to do if I have a good spring/summer/fall of training.
- Run Boston in 2012 and win it (HAHAHA)
So that's the plan. training needs to pick up from the current 60ish to a little closer to triple digits. Although I'm feeling pretty dedicated as I ran it crappy cold wet weather 3 times this week, which is a lot for a soft Californian like me.
Next week I'm hoping to get to 70, but I'm in Hawaii so will probably slack off and drink too much.
