Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? I have three resolutions:
1) Lose ten pounds. I’d like to lose more than that, but ten pounds is very realistic. A sub-heading for this resolution is to work harder at toning my arms.
2) Bike 800 miles and run over 200 miles. Last year I biked 684 miles and ran over 135 miles (I didn’t start tracking all my runs until late in the game).
This morning I ran 4.56 miles in 50 minutes, which is pretty good considering that it’s been almost three weeks since I last ran. As I get older I’ve discovered that I need to exercise regularly to avoid feeling exhausted. I also get more achy and risk greater injury when I don’t workout. It makes no sense, but I’m glad it’s true since it will keep me healthier.
3) Take some serious steps to improve my resume. I’m not planning any major job changes, but I want to stay competitive. The worst thing you can do in your career is become complacent.
