Hello again TheEd and others,
I am back after a few months of training at less regular pace. I started training running without any running history at the age of 37 almost exactly one year ago, in Oct 2010. Seven months later I ran a 21k race just below 1:50 in May 2011. Now after a few month of easy life, I plan to put myself back on the running trails and aim for a 5-minute inprovement (to 1:45) in the 21k next May (2012) and then go for a full Marathon in November 2012, with a target of 3:45.
I also started to do some swimming, and if that goes fine I may target some triathlon action for 2013 or so. But time will tell.
Now I will go back to last winter's training, when I successfully used the Sub50-minute 10k program for several months and really got into running. I will start off with that same program, and when it goes smoothly, I will move to the Sub45-minute 10k program. Now is the time for shape-up again!
