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!
