Goals For 2014

I did alright with my goals for 2013 but now it’s time to set some new goals for the new year!  This year while of course I want to have goals that push me I want to be able to meet all of this years goals.

The first goal is an easy one to set distance.

I’m setting out to run 1000km and bike 1700km this year.  2700km in total, 500 more than I went this year.  I think that is quite doable if I can stay injury free.

Push ups and crunchies (or abdominal exercises), last year I set out to do 50,000 push ups, it didn’t get done and I think that the lack of variety is what killed it for me.  I got bored of the challenge and it dropped way off.  This year my aim is a bit more variety and therefor I hope more attainable.  15,000 push ups and another 15,000 of various forms of crunchies.

Complete a duathlon I know there are some that run around here and now that I have a bike that can be competitive it could be really fun to do something like this.

I’m not really sure what other goals to set at the moment, maybe doing 1 arm bench presses with 65-70 pounds or something (currently doing 45)

I want to be in a bunch of races again, but I don’t really think that’s a goal to set, I don’t want to be in races just to be in them, I know I don’t want to travel as far this year to race unless it’s going to be an all day event.

What are your goals for 2014?

  1. Hi Chris! You may have dodged bad shoulders from 50,000 pushups anyway. You did plenty of pushups last year! Goals for me--same stuff I'm working on. I always have several exercise projects going. However, I am *very* excited to do my thing at the gym. Totally totally totally excited! I know you know *exactly* what I mean. Happy new year to Amber and you. :D
