As for health and fitness its been a pretty big year for me. Really the highlight and my most popular post was discovering I had Hereditary Hemochromatosis. I'm planning to post an update but the short story is after 7 phlebotomies my iron is back to reasonable levels (50-150 is optimal). I'll have to continue with the phlebotomies to keep my iron under control until I die but at a much reduced rate.
How about all my fitness goals? Lets review shall we because so far I have a pretty poor record of completing any.
2014 - Run 3 miles in 21 minutes
Although undocumented on this blog I did have a goal in 2014 of running 3 miles in under 21 minutes (7 min/mile pace). I had just started running again and that seemed reasonable at the time as I could run under 21 minutes when I was 12. However I was only able to run 2 miles in 14 minutes that year but never 3 miles.
I hurt my ankle for most of this year but got a few runs in at the end of year. Best 5K - 22:43 7:20 min/mile. I'll have a lot more on this next year but I've started training to put this one to bed in 2017.
2015 - Touching my Toes
Ah the saga of touching my toes, will have a full update at the end of March, but here is the end of year update.
It's only been a couple of months since I switched my goal to a handstand but I've started the handstand progressions. Here I am doing a headstand, I'm up to 4 sets of 36 seconds. Long way to go on this one still.
2017 - Complete the Indiana Spartan Sprint
So here is a goal I might actually be able to finish in a year. Goal for 2017 is to complete a Spartan Sprint, specifically the Indiana Spartan Sprint on July 9th in Lawrenceburg IN . Basically a 3-5 mile trail run with 20 or so obstacles. If you would like to join me and start at the same time I have a team setup named "Hunter".
What's your New Years Resolution, goal for the year? Let me know in the comments.
