Your goals are NOT your own…

This post is rated Sprinters, Olympians and Ironman.

Ok, I want to hear from you!

Goals are great, we all have them. Goals stretch us, they lead us to action. Goals push us beyond our levels of comfort and force us to grow.

No matter how great your intentions are, or how much time and effort you invest…Your goals are destined for failure if you do not make yourself accountable. 

We are a community of endurance athletes interested in leading active lifestyles. We plan our lives around training and racing. We push ourselves beyond the limits of “normal” on a regular basis.

How great would it be to know that there are others that share our passion? Wouldn’t it be nice to know that there are others who share our pain, who share our struggle? If I know what you are aiming for in 2014, I can do my part to support you and I can most definitely hold you accountable.

Would you be so kind as to share your athletic goals for 2014 and leave your answers above?

  1. Hi Bo, I just filled in your survey, and this year’s main goal is to swim open water, and more than just the mass event I’ve entered at the moment. There’s a possibility of Masters swimming, but I’m undecided whether to just go open water or enter pool events as well – this would be the second year since returning to swimming, post-op, so it would be good to finish in the top quartile of my age group for my events

      • To tri or not to tri? A very good question. The answer is yes and no. I’ve just started to get involved with swimming in a triathlon club to get more involved in open water, and the question has been raised a few times. I’m not sure if I’ll ever be fit to run again, so maybe on a team triathlon. However, some of the triathletes are interested in Masters swimming, and as this is something new for the club I’d like to support them. How long did it take for you to get back into running and triathlon post-op?

  2. For 2014, I have decided to stop being a couch potato. I have taken about a 10 year “break” after a knee injury in high-school, and I have decided to stop being on that so-called break. This year I want to compete in a triathlon, so I’m starting from scratch, first working on my 5K a few times a week, and i have just added biking and swimming in my weekly schedule.

  3. First of all congratulations on your decision! I can assure you you are more than halfway there. Mind set is so important when beginning anything new. From the sound of your input it sounds like you are well on your way. Slow and steady is your key to success. Push yourself a little further today than you did yesterday. I am excited to hear as your race approaches!
