I'm cutting it close getting these 'on paper' before the clock strikes midnight welcoming day 2 of 2014! I wish I was more eloquent sometimes, but it is what it is folks. Straight, no chaser.
Return to the work force aka give up the stay at home gig. For many reasons too personal to list this is a big goal, a need and a terrifying endeavor. I'm hoping lady luck is on my side...and maybe a Kleenex sponsor.
I saw something ridiculously easy and obvious last year about saving that struck my fancy. It's about matching dollars with the week number, save $1 week 1, $5 week 5, $48 week 48...you get the picture. At the end of 52 weeks you (if you followed the $) will have $1,378. Not bad for a year end contribution to Christmas, a vacation or an IRA.
3 sprints. I've decided on 2 of the 3 and am on the hunt for an early season one that fits the bill. I haven't run in 10 weeks and may already be biting off more than my run legs can chew, but I know that my body can cover a 5k at some speed. Rather than sign up for a full aquabike (which may or may not have crossed my mind...repeatedly), I'm keeping it short and sweet so that I can accommodate all aspects of my life.
Run. Seriously, just being able to go out for a run without thinking about it will be pretty damn awesome. I am going to run a 4k trail race in late March and a 5k on the 4th of July. Everything else is wait and see.
Specific and Measurable goals:
34 miles of swimming (I should probably get in the water)
500 miles of outdoor biking
Ride Around Torch 'race' - 27 mile distance
20 hrs on the trainer before my birthday in March
Yoga once a week
And the obvious:
Stronger, thinner, richer...
But most of all, be present and act with purpose.
