ℹ️ Although I reached the goal in March 2018, at the moment I’m much happier to put the money back into my business.
Thanks again for posting your results. With so many people watching it must make it realy difficult to no give it your all.
Just wondering what you are doing to improve your 5k time. Are you just running 5k’s or are you doing sprints, box jumps, deadlifts, squats as well to increase power and speed?
I’m in a 5k race in July with my colleagues and want to maximise my improvements between now and then so if you have any tips I’d love to hear them!
Likw you I am also working on my upper body as well. We are two people who won’t settle and want everything!
For weight, I try and measure my body fat instead – there is a machine at the gym and even if not perfect at least it shows the trend. If you weigh the same but more muscle, less fat etc..
Hi Joe, thanks a lot for the comment. Yes, making your goals public creates massive accountability.
Regarding the 5k runs, what I find to increase my fast pace endurance is interval training. I generally do warm up, and then intervals of 30 seconds or 1 minutes fast and then slow. Over time you can increase the speed or shorten the slow segments. I also do just slow recovery runs (12km/h) or longer runs of comfortable pace. I need to slow down my running a bit as I’m getting shin splints (probably overdoing it a bit).
Hope that helps. Any questions, just ask.
Well done on pushing your own goals and keep me updated.
Thanks for the swift response! Intervals/Sprints – I will do the same and add some slower runs.
Hi Thomas Looking at this is really inspiring, you are leading by example as always–Rachel
Hi Rachel, thanks so much. I’m glad it inspires you. 🙂

Thanks a lot Dan, appreciate you following my progress.
Nice info about your goal.
I want to know how many percent you can reach your goal in 2018?
Hi, thanks for the comment.
I haven’t worked out the % of how many goals I managed to reach in 2018. But I’d say the majority.
