What's new for 2011?

July 2010 was my last post here?  That's kind of scary.  As someone whose most prolific posting periods are around fitness work, it's clear what that means -- very little progress on the fitness front in the second half of 2010.

But 2011 is here, and with it perhaps some new goals and action plans.

I'm not looking to set weight loss goals here, but I am frustrated with where I am and know I need to make some changes.  I want to make strides in my endurance, strength, flexibility, and overall capability.  My minimum acceptable standard is being able to run 3 miles at will.  I'm not there, any more.  I've been there, and there's a strong correlation between being there and feeling happy, confident, and accomplished.  Getting there will require recouping some lost fitness.  Along that road I want to pay some attention to my core strength, balance, and flexibility. 

I think it will be interesting to write here, on this blog, a bit more often.  I know I have things I sometimes want to write about, which don't fit my family blog, or my professional blog.  So hiding them here is a nice way to get them out of my system :).  We'll see.
