This came up in the February Challenge thread, and I think it's a pretty good idea to have its own thread.

So, here is a place to post your fitness goals and progress!

My goals:

Shorter-term:
1. Compete in and finish a trail half marathon
2. Work up to running 6 road-miles in my minimalist shoes
3. Do at least one 100-mile bike ride event this summer (I haven't found an event I want to do yet).

Long-term goad:
1. More trail running with much more difficult terrain so that I can participate in this next year: http://quadzilla15k.com/info/

No. Any goal is a good goal!!!

Heck, my first goal with running was to just start!! Now I'm just an addict (which is good and bad
). Ha, also I remember starting to ride my bike regularly (many years ago) and 4miles just about killed me! Gotta start somewhere.

One of my goals is to start running at all, so don't feel bad.

Completely max out both semi-annual Army physical fitness tests this year.
For my age group that means 75 pushups in 2 minutes, 76 situps in 2 minutes, and 2 mile run in 13:18.

Other than that, just keep trying to develop weighted chin-ups and increase my number of body weight muscle ups and 1 armed chin-ups. Right now I'm at about 20 muscle ups and 2 real wobbly 1 armed chin-ups. I'd like to be able to do 5 in good form.

Do the Tough Mudder in Toronto to get a feel for what it's like, and then implement what I learn to begin preparing for Tough Mudder when it comes to Montreal next year.

I had similar goals for my yoga practice, to work on crow pose, headstands and other arm balances. I was making good progress but then my yoga studio closed and I don't feel safe practicing at home. I just wish the other studios in my area were affordable/had better class schedules. I haven't practiced yoga in over a year...

I have decided that when my finances improve a little I should sign up for swimming lessons and get a membership to use the pool at The Y. I know how to swim (kinda) but I never learned when people tried to teach me as a child, so I am sort of self taught and not very strong at it. It seems like it would be a good low-impact workout for total body fitness. If I enjoy it, I can start setting goals based on time and distance.
