Are there things I want to accomplish in 2024? You know there are! Even though I set some goals for the new year, I have a list of other things that I want to get done, especially in the fitness arena.
I want to make some gains at the gym
Right now, I’m in a good place at the gym. I’ve recorded 50 workouts, and they’ve all been solid and felt great. There is definitely improvement in my strength and balance, but I want to be at another level by the end of the year. I know there are some things I won’t be able to do (lunges, I’m looking at you), but I can develop my upper body, and get back to a place where I am really happy with myself and my fitness.
I’m scheduling at least one race per month this year
You heard it here first! I want at least twelve races this year, and I’ve already got my first three in place! Would it be fabulous to have more than that? You know it! But one race a month is a great thing to accomplish, and I’m all over it.
One of those races will be a half marathon
Here’s where I really need to get to work. It’s been two years since I ran a half, and I’m ready. Meghan asked me if I would accompany her on this adventure, and I’m all in. We just need to pick something fabulous. I don’t even mind if it’s an event or in a place I’ve already run – we just want to have a great time.
There’s a plan to read 50 books in 2024
I’ve been saying this for a while now, but I am off to a strong start and plan to keep it going. Reading is my favorite thing in the whole wide world, and it’s the thing I neglect the most. Part of the problem is I hate e-books, and I hate waiting for the books I want to read, so I buy without restriction, like a little book-hoarding gremlin. Is it a problem? Ehhhhh. Here’s what I have so far, but I am always open to suggestions and recommendations. Clearly, I don’t love light reading.
Most importantly, I want to do some of the things I keep planning to do
I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a running list of things I really want to do. Some are local and easy, while others require travel and an investment. We can call it a bucket list, if you like, but it’s much more random than that. For example, the weather is perfect to see the manatees, and I said I would make time to go to the springs to see them before they leave. And here I am, on January 11, with no manatees in sight. That needs to change. Stat.
