Foam roller is my homie. I’m in a better mood when I’m not in pain.
Lift weights/strength train three times per week.
This was a goal for 2013, at which I failed miserably. I want to get stronger so I can do more than just a few “real” push-ups, execute an un-assisted pull-up, and improve my overall fitness and health.
Hit the rowing machine three times per week.
In the last few months of 2013 I was consistently making it to the gym twice a week. The “Workout of the Day” makes this less boring. I’d like to be able to reach a sub-2-minute 500 meters. Right now, I can do about 2:20-2:30 reliably. Reaching this goal would mean I could row faster than I used to be able to run.
Read two books per month.
I’ve fallen out of the habit of reading for fun. I miss it, and I’d like to discover some new favorites.
See two films per month.
Despite having a Michigan Theater membership, we almost never make it to the monthly free movies. I need more culture in my life, and we can walk to the Michigan. Exercise + art = good for body and brain.
These are all realistic goals. I can do this!
