Specific goals for 2013
I’m not a massive one for new year resolutions. They are all or nothing, easily made, easily broken, and then you’re done for the year.
I do however think that the the new year is a superb time to refocus on goals and set specific targets. You might fall behind, you might get ahead, but you know it’s a year long project that you’re aiming for and committed to.
So let’s get them down…
Mine might be a bit strange for an MTB forum. I’m going to stop messing about and get stronger. I know how to do it, I’ve got the means and now I just need the target and motivation. By December 31st 2013 I’m going to be able to lift the following.
Squat = 2 x BW = 180kg (current 140kg)
Deadlift = 2.25 x BW = 202.5kg (160kg)
Bench press = 1.5 x BW = 135kg (110kg)
Push press: 1 x BW = 90kg (70kg)
Bring it on!Posted 5 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
Be competitive in the downhill part of the mt Buller bike festival and not way off the pace in the xc.
Slightly set back by my broken thumb.
Finish the year stronger and fitter so I can race the 4 day wildside race in Tasmania in 2014.

Find a house that me AND the missus can agree we like, and then buy the bugger.Posted 5 years ago
Figure out how i can hide another bike from the missus, and see if there is any way i can hide the £8500 that’ll go missing to pay for the S-Works Tarmac SL im dreaming of……
New car (nowt flash..Insignia type cheapness)
Get fitter…beat my 10k PB (currently 40mins 50secs), 1/2 marathon PB (1hr 41mins) and complete my first century on the road (London Revolution will sort that out for me like it or not).
Somehow find time to dust off the underused-these-days mountainbikes and see my mates again..
Most importantly….continue to be a (hopefully) good husband and father.
Find the time (and money) to see my sister and her family who live in New Zealand.
Get a couple of KOMS back on bloody Strava!!
Enjoy life, realise im lucky to have good, well paid job (even if means im working Christma Day), as does the missus, beautiful kids and good friends, a few quid in the bank, good health, food on the table and beer in the fridge. Lifes good.Pawsy_BearSubscriber
Retire at 55 in October ? A big change I’m not really sure if I will or not. I enjoy work but know I need more time to take on those big expeditions I’ve I always wanted to do.
Peru in May
Coast to coast in June in one day
