Well this is the start of 2011, and trainer feels that I really need to work on my endurance. I do have to agree. My smallest goal is to be able to actually run 400m by the end of February. A major goal for me this year would to be able to actually do a pullup with bands. Right now, um I try, but the are modified.
I just got back from 3 weeks in AZ, where I hiked, biked, and did a bit of running. It was awesome. Now I'm back in the cold with a few new goals before my xfit certification seminar thingy in March.
1) Move to AZ 2) start doing yoga every morning for flexibility 3) Eat better everyday, including a bit of meat. I felt so much better there and had less cravings when I added some protein to every meal. 4) I want to follow the xfit endurance WODs, which may also include a regular xfit WOD. It will be good.
I look forward to getting stronger and being more consistent in my life. I will LOVE living where it's warmer. I had so much more energy!
Here are some goals for me for 2011: 1. Do 5 pull ups. I can do 1 pull up and 3 chin ups right now. (This was new this year!!) 2. I want to do knees to elbows and then toes to bar. 3. I love handstand push ups and want to work on them! 4. We are (hopefully) getting more weights for Christmas, so want to get lifting a LOT heavier! 5. Be able to do double unders consistently. I can do 1 du, then some singles, the 1 du, etc.... (just figured out the double under about a month ago!) 6. I would love to have time to go train at a CF gym and start getting certified! (along with my husband!)

Sorry to read about a bad back...that can hold us back for sure!!! Still come for support!!!
Amazing a triatholon!!! I am such a crossfit beginner so I imagine one of my goals would be that in a few years. For 2010 just getting through the workout is an accomplishment. For 2011 I will think about it...When you say so.
Still dealing with a bad back for a while. My long term goal for 2011 (I am guessing REALLY long term!) is to do a pull up without the bands. I only have approval for deadlifts with the pvc pipe, and another goal is to strengthen myself enough to get approval for weights and, ultimately, squats.

I'm fairly new to Sparkpeople, and this is my first time trying to lose wt and get in shape with a specific goal in mind. Usually I just do it, or don't do it, and things end up as they end up. This is probably why I have put on 25 pounds over the last few years.
So...my goal is to really mindfully work on my fitness and health. I tend to eat way more than I think I do, and not as well as I think I do, so working on keeping track of my food will be very important for me.
I am signed up for a xfit endurance certification program in March, and will be participating in a triathlon in Flagstaff over the summer. I'd like to do well, and feel strong. Xfit endurance will the be way for me to accomplish that.
Although I'm in decent shape and have done xfit before, I'm feeling pretty sore from the workouts, and I've had to rest a couple of days since my last one. This is probably because I'm not eating as well as I could be.
Anyway....thanks for being here as a forum! I appreciate being able to get online and be encouraged by all that you are doing!

Well September is almost over so I will set a goal for October! By Halloween I want to be able to do full military style push-ups for the duration of any WOD. I am getting there, slowly but surely. It was the only reason I didn't RX the WOD today :(
