As I wrote yesterday, I started out with 5 goals for 2011, and completed three of them (with varying success). Since it’s that time of year, I’m looking back to see what I did right, what I did wrong, and decide what goals I want to set for 2012.
Goal 2: Complete My First Triathlon (either Sprint or Olympic distance)
I rocked this goal! My experience at the Riding Mountain Triathlon was fantastic – I had so much fun! I did the sprint distance, simply because I was still recovering from my ankle injury so I needed a very short run distance. I had a terrific swim, and good bike (even though I hadn’t trained on hills, and these hills were steep!!), and a pretty good run. It was a total success, and has done nothing except make me want to keep doing more races!
I consider this goal completed successfully. For 2012 I plan to do more triathlons, and to complete my first Half Ironman one. It will require a LOT of training, but I’m excited about it!
#WEverb11 is at a close for 2011, it’s been fun! With only three prompts left we are down to the wire.

Begin to create a plan for “My friends day out 2012” – tell us what you envision.
This is going to sound so lonely and sad, and I don’t mean it that way… I don’t HAVE a lot of friends! I have lots of casual friends, but few close ones. And most of my friends are individual friends – I don’t have a large group of girlfriends that all do things together! At most, a couple of us might go out for lunch. I’m not good at staying connected with people, and this is one thing I want to work on in 2012. Staying connected is important! So this prompt is kind of a fail, I can’t plan a “day out”, but making friends and staying in touch is something I will try to be better at.
I had a lot of goals for yesterday. I did ok. I did 10 minutes of planks, push ups, crunches etc. – not much of a workout, but better than nothing. I worked on 3 different blog posts. I knocked more than 3 things off various To Do lists. I spent some time thinking about 2012 goals, although I’m still not done. I did NOT get the budget numbers done. So I feel OK about this!
Goals for today are the same as yesterday:
1) Write 2 blog posts
2) 1 workout
3) Work on 2012 goals
4) Finish budget calculations
5) Tackle 3 items on To Do lists (including call Rogers re cell phones!)
