New Year’s Reflections

The beginning of the New Year is upon us.

We didn’t do anything for New Year’s Eve this year, which was our choice. It’s easier to stay home and make an early night of it. To tell the truth, it felt like just another Friday night for us, even though it wasn’t a Friday night.

New Year’s Day entailed brunch at a friend’s house. It was a rather large event with about 25-30 people attending. It was a great way to start the new year. We contributed some homemade Sangria and cinnamon rolls.


I had hoped to manage a 2-hour spin on the bike but it didn’t work out that way.

Last year I had more resolutions in mind for the New Year. This year I have nothing to speak of. I’m not sure why that is but I think part of it is because it doesn’t feel like the New Year.

I’ve been reading plenty of others’ New Year’s resolutions and I feel like I need to create one but it wouldn’t be any different from last year’s or my on-going goals to lose weight, eat healthy, stay fit, and be better/faster on the bike.

My hope is that 2009 will be a better year for me from a biking aspect. 2007 I logged more miles than 2008. I hit the wall in 2008, losing a lot of steam towards the end of the year. Hopefully I’ve made the necessary adjustments with my off-season training this time around to avoid a repeat this year, allowing me to ride more as well as get faster on the bike.

Tomorrow I’ll get serious with my base building in preparation of the upcoming cycling season. Bring on 2009!

  1. Why is it that we both have the same goals in mind for 2009 that totally tanked in 2008? What can we do to make it a different story this year? I am at the same if not worse place I started in last year. I know specificity of goals helps, but I did that last year too. Anyone have any suggestions?
