Whenever New Years comes up I think back to the previous year and what my goals for the year were. We have all made some crazy goals or resolutions. We all have seen how crazy the gym is the week or two after new years day and then some of us see the drop off as everyone else goes back to the way things were before the new year started. All of a sudden there will be lots of parking spots at the gym, all the people you saw outside running will stop and things will go back to normal.
Last year my goal was to train and run the Disneyland Half Marathon. I did this. However I added several other health focused things to my life as well. I started doing crossfit, I started running more, I changed how I eat and think about wellness. This year I am setting some new goals for myself.
1. Run the LA Marathon (Already Registered)
2. Run the TinkerBell 10k (Already Registered)
3. Get my 5k time down to 30 min or less
4. Get my 10k time down to 60min or less
5. Do the Dumbo Dare
6. Finish a half-marathon in 3 hours or less
7. Do a strict pull-up
8. Do a handstand push-up
9. Get Double Unders
10. Do at least 1 Crossfit WOD at RX
I have just a few goals, but I know that some of them are inter-related. If I want to run a 10k in an hour my 5k time is going to need to be half that, right? I also know that I am getting close on some of my goals and I just need to keep pushing. Also I know that not all my goals can be running related since that is not all my fitness is. These are just the fitness goals, there are other goals for the new year but they are not quite as set yet. I guess I will see what the new year brings.
