2011 Goals and stuff

1. Don't ride the bike more than 75 miles at one time. I made many a promise to my butt on those long rides this year and promises made to your butt are ones that really shouldn't be broken.
2. Have Fun. Normally this is number one, but a promise is a promise. I plan to do more short fun races with friends this year to make up for missing so many last year.
3. Get Faster. Especially on the bike, I feel I lost a ton of speed focusing on the long rides for ironman so 2011 will be all about hills and sprints on the bike.
4. Get out of the clydesdale division. I was 8lbs away this year, and then the ironman build up started, and then the ironman was over and now I'm 18 away. In the past I didn't think it was possible, but now is the time to rethink what possible means.

So there they are, only 4, but they are 4 I can do and enjoy doing. After 2010 I am in much need of a break and to just let go and have fun. so 2011 is now officially going to be called "The Year of Fun"

Well, I didn't run too many races this year so I didn't miss you...:) But I want to get faster too. My FB friend Pauline was running about my pace a year and half ago...This year, she has been averaging 7:30. I'd like to be sub 7s this year...in the short races, of course. :)

And I agree, you can't break promises you make with your butt. Bad things will happen if you do...
