Since I hurt my foot back in 2012, I have struggled with my fitness level. Being busy with the move to Scotland and getting settled here did not help. I have been exercising regularly and currently, I would describe myself as fit for my age--nearly 47. However, in the early 2010s, I would have described myself as fit, period. I was competing with athletes much younger than me and was getting progressively faster. I have not given up on returning to that level, but progress is much slower.
So, goals (in no particular order):
1. Lose weight; partially for vanity, partially for performance by improving my body composition and my power to weight ratio and, of course, for my health. My measuring device: my favorite black belt--I'm on the second hole and I want to be back in the fourth hole. Also, I want to be back near my high school graduation weight--175 pounds, around where I was in the early 2010s. Honestly, I do not know what I weigh right now, perhaps 190-195 pounds.
2. Exceed, match, or at least approach my running PRs:
This will be tough.
3. Increase my cycling wattage.
4. Achieve 365 fitness: ready for anything physical on any given day or within a reasonable amount of time for training, e.g. run a half marathon within 6-8 weeks or compete in an obstacle course or adventure race.
5. Stay injury-free.
