goal preview: fitness

So since 2010 is a new decade, both chronologically and personally, I'm making a dual set of resolutions. One will be a goal for 2010, which will be a seed for a decade goal. I have several categories, and obviously there are some goals I won't share publicly (my mom read this!), but here's the first category: FITNESS.

The first is 2010, the second is before 2020.

Run a 5k --> Run a marathon
Ride a Century --> Ride 5,000 miles in one year
Do the planned Northern European Bike Tour --> Do a bike tour yearly
Get through a yoga class unmodified --> Take a yoga retreat
Reach target weight --> Never again weigh more than 20 lbs over target weight
Get to spin twice weekly (unless on vacation) --> Become a certified spin instructor

Do you have any ideas for other fitness goals I should set?


  1. sweet. You are far more productive than I.

  2. Awesome goals! I don't think you really need any additional suggestions, but what about a triathalon? Tri-ing for Children has 3 different difficulty levels to really ease yourself into it. The Tosa WAC also has a combination spin/swim training class - there's an extra fee associated with it, but sounds really interesting, especially if you decided to do a triathalon. Congrats on the weight loss!


Thank you for stopping by The Accidental Wisconsinite. Your feedback is welcome, but please be civilized. Remember, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!
