2010 in Review

I have seen a number of Year-in-review posts on blogs, and everyone and their brother is doing a year in review of pictures from facebook, but I just got inspired after reading Colleen's recap and decided to take a look back at my 2010. I did happen to stumble on my 2010 Goals, posted in January:

Resolutions/Goals 2010:
  • 160 lbs by May 1 (8 lbs or so since I put a few back on during the holidays) - Yikes, not even close - May have made 164 at some point in the season
  • Find a good work, life, exercise balance - Well executed!
  • Do not stress about little things (also realize that most things are little) - Well executed!
  • Update the blog more often and include more pictures - Getting better
  • Start using my DSLR more - Getting better
 Tri Goals:
  • New Brighton Race (6/5/2010)
    • 1:30/100 yd swim over 1/2 mile - 1:31/100
    • 20 MPH Garmin Average on bike (<42 min bike, 14 miles) - 22.8 MPH
    • Sub 22 min run (3 miles) - 22:11
    • Overall time under 1:20 - Check
    • Ideally shooting for 1:15 - Check 1:13:50
  • Sprint course 21 MPH Average - Done at New Brighton
  • First "test" FTP = 260, Improve to 286 by race season - HAH Yeah Right

Well I missed the weight goal, but also did not approach it very well.  2011 is a new year!  Blogging and taking pictures is on the up, I just need to continue being active on both of those.  As for tri goals, I missed the swim by 1 second per 100 and the run by 11 seconds. I was close, but fell short, although my overall performance was good.  FTP... yeah that thing... I am not sure I had it calculated right (especially looking back at all my races...) Again 2011 is a new year.

Noteworthy Events:
- Amazing ski trip to Colorado
- Broken wrist in March
- MS150 bike ride
- 20 minute improvement at New Brighton
- Active Team Marathon 2010
- 20 minute improvement at Waconia Tri
- 8 minute improvement at St Paul Sprint Tri
- Set Half Marathon PR (beat goal by over 5 minutes) 1:39:34
- 4 AG podiums
- Selected for Team Trakkers 2011!
- Mission trip to Africa

I need some time to compose a new goals post for 2011, this will require some careful planning and thought, I know my schedule will not have as many races as last year (EPIC August was not good to my performances)

Looks like a very solid year. That coupled with keeping a good work/life/tri balance makes it a great year. Congrats!

Jeff—awesome year hombre.

1:30 per 100 for a half mile swim? That is no joke. Do you use a snorkel? That is the only way I would be able to keep that pace unless I suddenly form gills.

I don't know how tall you are—I'm 6'2"—but I have not weighed 160 pounds since eighth grade. I wouldn't sweat it. You are still really aero in that water.

Solid year! I need to do my year recap this week.

Holy crap, you are a fast swimmer!! I am LUCKY to get 2:00 per 100, no joke.

Nice year! I can't believe how close you came to those time goals!! 2011 will be a great year!

Colleen December 28, 2010 at 1:07 PM  

It's kind of fun to write your own recap, but I think reading other people's is just as fun!

Congrats on a great year and looking forward to another fantastic one in 2011!

Great year Jeff!

You are a fish dude!

Nice work Jeff, can't wait to see more goals accomplished at Rev3s this year!
