I am having a hard time with goals. I want to make it realistic so I am putting some more thought into things.
I know that I want to be consistent in my current workouts - running, biking, and swimming. I also want to add weight lifting a couple times a week. This should be okay since I am used to twice-a-day workouts.
I know I would like to do another marathon in a new state. I have a couple of candidates in mind. But I don't want it to affect my general workout routine. But since I am not interested in setting landspeed records, I shouldn't have to affect my current workout routine too much. I just need to make my midweek run and my long Sunday run either longer or more quality like speedwork or hills.
I would like to work up to a century and sign up for some rides that are mid-distances.
I would like to do that duathlon I've been talking about doing for a year or more!
I would like to lose 5 pounds and if I continue to work out the way I have been and be better at logging my food intake, this should not be a problem. Not really.
I did not read much last year - only 3-4 books. This year, I would like to read 6 books. And I won't play Sudoku until I have gone through those 6 books. Sudoku can be a time suck!
I would like to go a new baseball park. That might be a bit of a stretch goal, not sure.
I would also like to simulate a sprint, an olympic and half ironman triathlon. This doesn't mean I sign up for it. It just means that I do swimming, biking, and running all in one day. And I'd like to do one in the summer so that I do not have to spend all my time in a pool. Walden Pond comes to mind. I am looking forward to going for a swim in it.
I need 4 more goals.
And I would like to specifically cite some races for the above goals if possible.
When I get it figured out, I will let you know.
