I have been thinking about stuff recently and have decided that I would like some shorter goals. Christmas seems a good time to achieve them by. So, the targets will be:
Swim: Sub-6 mins for 400m
This should be achievable as I could do it a couple of years ago. My PB was 5:55 in September 2007.
Bike: CTS field test result of 288W
To be honest, I can’t quite remember what this is off the top of my head but I know I did 262W / 257W on 6 March 2011 on the Wattbike. 288W is a 10% improvement. This might be a little soft. If it is, I will adjust.
Run: Sub-19:00 for Basingstoke park run
My PB is 19:11 for the 5k run. I set this in March 2010.
Push-ups: To do 100 in a single go
My best is in the low 30s. This will be the toughest challenge by far
Weight: To be sub-70kg
That means 4.4kg has to go. That’s 0.25kg per week. Very do-able if I set my mind to it.
Dog walking: Take Sparkie for a walk in the evening at least 4 times per week
It beats surfing the interweb – but a day only counts if I get home from work before 8pm
