2011 Goals

1 01 2011

1) Reach and maintain a body weight of 80kgs. If I achieve only this goal, I’ll be a happy man.

2. Finish 1 Olympic length triathlon (1.5km swim, 40km ride, 10km run). I’d rather it was an organised triathlon but if needs be, I’ll do one by myself.

3. Run C2S and better time by at least 6 minutes. Last year I ran 81minutes with a disrupted preparation, and I’m planning on doing better this year. Ideally, I’d like to do a sub 70minute time, but I’ll happily take sub 75.

4. Attempt a marathon in 2011. I suspect this will end up being towards the end of spring, but hopefully by then I’ll be ready for a genuine crack at it.

5. Complete a HM in under two hours. My first marathon last year was run in 2:01, so with some good training I should be able to better this.

6. Complete 200km ride. I’d like to tie this in with the Canola Canter (see below)

7. Complete at least three of the following:

8. One I pinched from ajh. Complete the virtual TdF – that’s ride the same kms as the 2010 TdF before the 2011 TdF finishes. Scheduled end date for the 2011 TdF is July 24.

Good luck with your goals.

40@40? That’s not 40km/hr is it? If yes, hopefully my rule of starting and finishing in the same place is waived, and you can find a 40 km downhill somewhere!

Yep, sure is. It’s one of those goals that I don’t suspect to actually achieve, but trying to succeed will spur me on. I could possibly eek out a 35@35 on the right course, but a 40@40 is highly unlikely.
