Happy New Year! Hope you all had a wonderful time ringing in 2011. For all you young 'uns out there - here's what you have to look forward to when you are in the 5th decade of life - I didn't make it to 10:30 before I was sawing logs. Luckily, my wife and kids woke me up about 5 minutes before the strike of midnight so I could watch Ryan Secrest et al. Personally, I thought the highlight of the evening was "A Night at the Opera" on AMC followed by the start of The Three Stooges marathon on TCM. Maybe that's an explanation for the last couple of weeks of tweets by me (LOL!)
Speaking of 2011, I'm looking forward to the new start. My little exercise of the past few days allowed me some time to reflect on what went wrong in 2010. I really think that I just too narrowly defined my goals. Everything revolved around accomplishments. Once I lost my mojo in late March, all my running related goals were looking more and more unattainable. It became incredibly difficult to muster the motivation to slog away in the trenches. That's why this year's goals are more the type that define where I want to be in a year as opposed to what I want to get accomplished. This year, if my tactical plans get jettisoned for injury, lack of interest, etc., I can still adapt a new tactical plan to achieve my goal. At least this time, if I spend my afternoons sitting around, I'll be able to stop stuffing my face (in theory).
I start tomorrow. lindsay, I'm giving you a run for your money in the procrastination department. Thank goodness I didn't have a "non-procrastination" clause in my 2011 goals. Whew!
Here's wishing everyone a healthy, happy, and most importantly, prosperous 2011! Let the party begin!
