Bingley's sights on personal best

Click here for the week three training program

ANDREW Bingley has a pretty specific goal in mind for this year's Launceston Ten.

It will be the 25-year-old's third entry in the 10-kilometre race and he is looking to set a personal best.

"My first year was about 46 minutes, and then the previous year wasn't as quick," Bingley, of West Launceston, said.

"(This year) I'm hoping to get a bit quicker, in the low 40s - 43 minutes."

To help his cause along, Bingley will be amping up his training regime.

"I usually go for a run at lunch, but I only get about six kilometres in. So (I'll) probably do a few runs at lunch and then a few longer runs in the evening."

Bingley said he looked to the June 15 event for an "overall encouragement of fitness.

"It's a good day. It's a nice way to gauge fitness against other people," he said.

In the lead-up to the Launceston Ten, The Examiner is running an online training program with personal trainer Kate Pedley.

Each Monday, The Examiner uploads that week's training schedule to examiner.com.au, as well as profiling a Launceston Ten entrant.
