    Goals for the year

    Ok we're 13 days into 2017. What are you goals for the year?

    Mine are first and foremost to survive it and secondly to run a 10km race in November!

    Avoiding death is the primary goal.

    I might do a half marathon or possibly a tri this year, just to set a fitness related goal. That all depends on my back more than anything.


    Glad to see you back around!

    Mine is also to get fitter. I was in good shape a couple of years ago, but a few injuries in my sports career and eating too much has set me back.

    No major aim at the end as I know how I need to feel. (If that makes any sense)
    Its not crashing it's drifting with style

    Same here..I have been planning to go do some activity or gym for the last week but it's been very hectic (with me moving yet again!) . I'm hoping I shake off the lethargy and do something about my fitness this week.

    Fitness is not a problem. I'm in the gym three times a week.
    Goals for the year (in descending order) -
    1) Manage my time better
    2) Learn something new (and maybe unusual)
    3) Drink really good beer
    I will absolutely accomplish one of those.

    Goals are on hold until my father passes on, have a degree to finish (1 semester left) unsure if this will happen, everything unfortunately is up in the air.

    Conclusion: The Grim Reaper’s preferred walking speed is 0.82 m/s (2 miles (about 3 km) per hour) under working conditions. As none of the men in the study with walking speeds of 1.36 m/s (3 miles (about 5 km) per hour) or greater had contact with Death, this seems to be the Grim Reaper’s most likely maximum speed; for those wishing to avoid their allotted fate, this would be the advised walking speed.

    Avoiding death should be easy provided you outwalk the The Grim Reaper.

    My thoughts are with you and your family. Really hope you get to complete your degree.

    -> get fit
    -> get a life
    -> find somebody who can't stand me
    -> some improvement in my 'career'

    other than these everything is good already

    It's the 19th already. So who gave up on some goals already?

    PS -> get my hair back. if I figure this one out, I'm golden
