Less thinking, more swimming.

I took a class in the summer of 2008 and swam a few days a week during the session. The instructors seemed to think the mechanics of my freestyle were just fine (though I’m sure not optimal) and simply encouraged me to swim more to condition myself. I’ve decided to fold this goal into the triathlon goal since I am back to marathoning. When I find the triathlon that tells me it wants to be my first, and it’s time for me to choose a training plan, I will swim all the swimming there is to swim on the plan that I choose. Ain’t nothin’ to it but to do it.

It's started all right!

That just leaves finishing it. Ba dum chhhh

But seriously, I’ll have to consider what constitutes an appropriate goal for the next stage. Existence was the easy part! Now that I have an LLC, I need to work toward getting all of my nuts and bolts in order and integrating the work I was already doing with the brand name. Perhaps the next goal will involve integrating OmniFocus into my daily life.

Discrete goals are better.

I missed 2009 and 2010 with a TON of life detours, but find myself happily training for another race in March. Deflecting this goal onto the 50 states and 7 continents goals will be more realistic, so I wash my hands of this. Done and done!
