So I spent the morning trying to write this post that didn't sound too over the top or too ambitious or too much like a pipe dream. After struggling with it for 2 hours I realized I was trying to write a post in a different voice, not mine. So I walked away from the post, went to workout and decided - bullshit!!! I'm going to write what I'm thinking and feeling and screw how it sounds. So here goes....
For the past couple of years I have let things slide - things being me. I stopped racing and training. I stopped working out for long stretches of time. I stopped caring for myself. Well, this year I want to change all that. So here are my goals.
The big ones:
- Get serious about running again
- Start racing/doing triathlons
- Lose some of this f(*$&%(*(#)$ weight
I also want to change some things in other parts of my life.
- Become more organized
- Stay on top of my work for school
- Keep on top of the bills and financial stuff
- Finish my thesis and apply to the PhD program
Those are about it. Not earth shattering but that's what I want to accomplish this year. Towards that end I'm going to come up with monthly, maybe even weekly goals to achieve the above items.
For January the goals are:
- Run 3 days a week for 1 hour
- Strength train 3 days a week
- At least 1 race
- Stick to WW and follow the plan for the whole month
- Organize my desk
- Develop a system to keep on top of everything and use it
That's it. It's really not that much but it is a start. I have been following WW this week and am already feeling really good, I like the new program. I also need to really focus on my running. I tried that couch to 5k thing and it starts so incredibly slow, it really doesn't work well for me. So I need to really work on my running. I plan to do 2 triathlons - Tinman and Na Wahine - this year. Those are the only ones I really want to do. In 2012 I'll do some more but for now that's it.
I guess that's it. It all ends today and tomorrow is a clean slate. I love it but I need to start focusing in smaller increments. So happy new year and see you in 2011.
