Goals for the rest of 2010 and beginning of 2011

I decided to lay out my goals in a little bit more of a coherent fashion, plus I’ve added some personal goals to my list at the end.

First, my long term goals for each dog:

Miles:

Qualify and attend 2011 USDAA Nationals and run clean in finals of PGP and PSJ

Qualify and attend 2012 AKC Nationals running clean in all rounds

 Attend 2011 Golden Retriever Nationals

Rue:

And my short term goals for each dog (ie. the next 1-2 months)

Miles:

– Continue fine tuning our warm-up and  cool-down routines for agility

– Continue to stretch him nightly and after strenuous activities including jogging, offlead hiking, swimming, and agility

– Do ball work/strength work 2-3 times per week depending on agility schedule.  Work up to longer duration on the ball.  Master side sit-ups, crawling, handstands, and 1,2,3,4 exercises on the floor.

– Make and use cavalettis and/or ladder

– Continue monthly massage visits, every 1-3 month visits with chiro, and semi-annual visits with Dr. Schwabe

– RUN like I mean it in trials and in practice.  Drive my dog!

– Make the finals of PGP and/or PSJ at 2010 USDAA Nationals

Rue:

– Give her a 2 month break from competitions to enable us to go back over missing foundation work and to continue to increase her drive for agility

– Continue to find new places to work on focus and morivation

– Continue to build upon our tug/play/agility sessions by making the agility portion a bit more prominent and/or more difficult

– Continue to stretch nightly and after strenuous activities including jogging, offlead hiking, swimming, and agility

– Do ball work/strength work 2-3 times per week depending on agility schedule.  Work up to longer duration on the ball.  Master side sit-ups, crawling, handstands, and 1,2,3,4 exercises on the floor.

– Make and use cavalettis and/or ladder

– Continue monthly massage visits, every 1-3 month visits with chiro, and semi-annual visits with Dr. Schwabe

Me:

–  Lose the 5 lbs I gained since February plus the 5 more I’ve wanted to lose for years by Dec. 31 2010

–  Continue keeping a food diary 5 days a week and being sensible on the weekends

–  Integrate more protein into my diet and avoid processed foods as much as possible

–  Take my multivitamin daily!!!

–  Train for and compete in the 2011 Tobacco Road Marathon

–  Continue weekly personal training sessions to help with strength and power

–  Continue yoga/pilates 1-2 times per week to work on flexibility and core strength

 

There, now maybe you all can help hold me accountable!!!

  1. Are you doing an online food journal, or just a notebook (the old-fashioned way)? Your goals are similar to mine. I’ll have to find time to do a goals post.
