2010 Goals and Aims

Welcome to my healthy living blog which I'm writing to keep track of my 2010 fitness goals and share healthy vegetarian recipes. I've been training for a few years now, I've been running since October '09 and started boxing about 6 months ago, I hope to get carded and have my first fight some time in the new year.

New Years Goals
Running/conditioning
Complete half marathon (current 4 miles)
One mile in >7.30 (current 7.55)
Two miles in >15.30 minutes (current 16.23)
Three miles in >24.30 minutes (current 25.25)
Four miles in >35 minutes (current 37.50)

Strength
Hold a plank for 3.30 minutes (current 2.30)
3 pull-ups in a row (current 0)
5 chin-ups in a row (current 1)
30 push-ups in a row (current 10)

Boxing
Improve hooks and uppercuts – practice in sparring
Improve stance so weight is spread more evenly
Angle off – don't stand square
Win my first fight!

New Years Resolutions
Do core workouts twice a week
Neck exercises once a week
Wrist curls once a week
Isometric punches once a week
Boxing three times a week
Running three times a week (distance, sprints and intervals)
Follow pull-up/chin-up plan

  1. I love your goals for the year! I've made little goals along the way (with the big one to be to fight and win) but I like the idea of setting a set of benchmarks... it must feel great to look back now and see how far you've come!

    I'm glad I found your blog! I love seeing your training goals (and they give me ideas!).
