Here we are again.
List your goals for 2014, Physical and Mental, then drop by here once in awhile to let us know how you are doing.
I don't know why I stopped posting on the 2010 thread, I ran my fastest marathon that year (4:56:52~ I know, not exactly supersonic) and I did get into size 34 jeans that Thanksgiving.
I'll be back with specific goals for this year. (I am running the NYC marathon, my fifth, in November, so that will be on there as well as some other goodies.
Join me, won't you?
I'll boost you, you boost me.

Okay. I'll do this myself. Hah.
I'm going to run the 2014 NYC Marathon, already confirmed my entry.
It will be my fifth marathon and I'd like to make it my best.
Also, I'm turning 67 this April, but, unless I've had a long weekend, you can't tell, at least so I'm told.
Here goes: (Note~ when I said I was starting from zero, I meant it. I haven't been working out at all and this Start Sheet shows it.)
Now able to do.
5o crunches (25 x 2)
14 push-ups (jeez, a year ago I was doing 25 w/o getting winded.
Curls 3x10 at 25 pounds
Shoulder lifts 3x10 at 15 pounds
Running: Longest run to date this year : 1.1 miles
Mileage this year >10 miles.
Goals: Get average per month of miles to 100
Be able to do 50 push-ups without stopping
Be able to do 3 sets of 20 curls at 25 pounds
Be able to do 3 sets of 10 at 25 pounds
Be able to 100 crunches. Four sets of 25 or Two sets of 50.
I'm not going to bother talking about body weight, that will take care of itself.

List your goals for 2014:
1. I will run the Chase Corporate Challenge and be the first in the firm to finish bringing the trophy from the 11th floor to the 13th floor of the law firm in which I work.
2. I will consume a genuine cronut from Dominique Ansel Bakery.
3. Get my teeth cleaned.
4. Find other things to add to my health and fitness goals list.
Those are excellent goals for, wait a minute.......there's a 13th floor in the building where you work? Are they not familiar with either the myth of the number 13 or the urban legend that there is never a 13th floor in any building.??
I need a cronut. AND we we need to go get one before the whole fad dies or everyone who eats more than one does.
Work on your list during the Super Bowl.

-- so far i haven't skipped a day...
today's a good jogging day in bahstin -- mild and not much snow or ice on the sidewalks...
we found out that there won't be as many local 5k's this year, as the company that hosts them is struggling fincancially...
at work, i walk up the stairs as much as possible.
six flights -- i take the steps two at a time -- is quite the work-out...
I finally got today and meandered around Ft. Tryon Park. (I was going to go down to Central Park but I didn't want to be wet on the train coming home.)
Did just over a 5K but very slow, just burning calories so I can eat some chicken wings tonight.
'tis a shame about your local running shrinking. Any chance of finding other sponsors?? It's different here in the City. We have COUNTRIES wanting to sponsor a race. We already have Israel Day, Japan Day, Norway sponsored the Greta (Wietz) Gallop and there's even one for the United Arab Emirates.
To say nothing of the various Cancers (Colon, Leukemia, Breast).
We are spoiled brats.
So far so good.

I've been gardening (hah, it's called weeding) every day for a while. I used to spend a lot of time in the yards I lived with, partly for learning re plants and having fun with design, but partly because I liked getting out there, and finally because I liked growing my own vegetables. But here in sandland, with me now older, lazier, and a little flaky with balance issues on unplanted sand, I have had trouble finding the right time of day to get on out there. A lot of the summer is blasting hot, but I don't feel like rising and shining and going out to garden, and am tiring from other stuff towards evening, wanting to relax. So - got to get going on it earlier in the day, come summer. I can do it, she says.
March and October are pretty good temperature months here, but March/April/some of June can bring a lot of wind - another reason for working in the yard, going for walks, etc., earlier.
It has been cold here lately, but I get uncold fast when 'gardening' mid cold day since I am basically outta shape. Garden improvement is occurring, and maybe so is my energy. Also, it gives me a chance to wear my thick knit cap, warm, keeps out wind, a real beauty from somewhere I don't quite remember - Katmandu, I think.
OK, those goals r to have as much fun as possible,
consistent with at least
a reasonable amount of personal relaxation.
So far, my quest has been SUCCESSFULL
I will continue practicing.
Among my 2O14 Physical and Mental goals will be
to acquire a REALLY GOOD
massage chair and to use it conscientiously.
( Woud that be a good Olympic competition ? )
still doing the age push-ups every morning...
way to go.
