THE GOAL IS TO KEEP THE GOAL THE GOAL!

I am a firm believer in making goals. I am even a firmer believer in accomplishing them. At the beginning of the year, I made short term goals that I could accomplish month to month. My first set of goals was to be accomplished by March.

MARCH TRAINING GOALS

28 kg TGU

200 lbs Deadlift x 1

Run 12 miles at race pace (8:30)

Pistol Squat


GOALS ACCOMPLISHED

28kg

225 lbs x 1 Deadlift


When looking back at my goals, I realized that I was trying to be a jack of all trades and trying to master them all at the same time, I wouldn’t be able to accomplish any of them.

Running has now become a leisurely activity, instead of a training tool. Back in October, I ran the Boston Half Marathon. I injured my knee and since I was trying to rehab to get back into running. In February I went to the Mike Boyle’s Winter Seminar, Mike brought up a good point about  injury prevention. He used a great analogy about the psychology of when people get hurt doing a specific motor exercise, and then how they rehab to get back to it.

“If you burned your hand on the stove, would you wait until your hand healed to put your hand back on the stove?”

It made complete sense to me. If I injured myself running 13 miles, why rehab to get back to re-injure it?  I made running a leisurely activity instead of making it part of my training. Of course, you need to take this analogy with a grain of salt and not use it out of context; but for running, it worked for me.

As for my pistol squat, I have not designated enough time to it, but I am working towards it. It is still one of my goals.

Check out these videos for the goals that I have accomplished!
