Well after stopping off for two pints weightlifting was definitely beyond my will but I managed half an hour on the exercise bike so that's it - I've managed to do something at least everyday so far this year  :thumbsup:

Weight back down to 71kg (currently 76kg) < failed
Move back up to 3w/kg training on Zwift. < failed
Move up to the fast group in my running club < succeeded, got injured, hence the start of the fails
Move up to running marathon length trail events < see above
Do an SR series < see above
Do a trail ultra < see above

manage all that whilst not being obsessive about training (ideally, keeping training below 10hrs a week) < succeeded
making sure my significant other and kids feel like they are vastly important than my fitness goals* < succeeded
whilst all doing a solid job < succeeded
trying to get promoted at work < failed

Goals this year are about the same, minus the running. Wrecked my hip for months.

Back to 71kg < currently 80kg.
Back to 3 w/kg < currently 2.4
Do a 200, 300 & 400 - will see about a 600.
Get FEV1 back up above 5.5 < currently 5.16 (was 5.76 but I am older now)

This is a success in itself!

I'm aiming to ride the Newcastleton and back in a couple of weeks if your around?And may then try to add a 300, 400 and even a 600? I'm still running mind...

Would be good to catch up

Updated - steady progress, but in a world of flux I’m afraid

Good point, updated mine.

Almost all of my goals are up in the air due to the lockdown but we'll see what can happen.

Weight starting to drop the last few weeks thanks to lockdown so hopefully the max weight for April will not be as high as I've seen before.

New year, new goals

Club time trial sub 60 (managed 60m 16s last year but I've lost a lot of fitness since then).

Finish in top 3 in a div 5 race.

Marathon distance in sub 4hrs 30m

This is all kayaking of course.
Well, given the lockdown, this needs amending. No club time trial, no racing (probably none all summer).

New goals:

Half marathon distance sub 2hrs

Marathon distance in sub 4hrs 20min

1km sprint sub 4min.
