2011 Goals

I was planning on posting yesterday but for some reason my computer wouldn't turn on and I couldn't figure out what was wrong. This morning I took out the battery and put it back in and suddenly it turned on. Not sure what the problem was but I am glad to be back on.

Earlier today I read an awesome post by Emily about 2011 goals. She mentioned that today is June 30, which marks the half-way mark of the year. At the start of the year I was unable to do any form of exercise because I was recovering from surgery. Therefore, I didn't have any goals for the year relating to running and fitness. I thought, what better time to make goals for 2011 than at the half-way point. I wanted to make all types of goals, not just running or triathlon ones. I wanted to set goals for every aspect of my life in order to make the most out of the rest of the year.

   Goal: Run my first half marathon
   Goal: Complete my first triathlon
   Goal: PR in 5K
   Goal: Qualify for USAT Age Group Nationals

   Goal: Swim twice a week
   Goal: Incorporate strength training into weekly workouts
   Goal: Run 350 miles
   Goal: Bike 750 miles
   Goal: Make training friends

   Goal: Join at least one club
   Goal: 3.5 GPA or better
   Goal: Make awesome friends
   Goal: Make the most of every opportunity

   Goal: Lose 10 pounds
   Goal: Cut out most dairy
   Goal: Love my body
   Goal: Wear sunscreen
   Goal: Eat out no more than once a week

Each month throughout the rest of 2011 I will be checking in on these goals and updating you guys with my progress. I hope to make this year the best one ever!
