Goals for 06'

We all need goals, and I have decided on some judo and fitness goals for myself for this year. I know that lip service isn't enough, and I will need to really work hard to get there, but I hope that at least one of these will be reached between now and next December.

  • I want to get my Nikyu. There are two promotionals in each year and that gives me two more shots at it.
  • I want to get in better shape. I went from 225-230 lbs. in August 04' to 190-195 in August 05', but by December I was back up at 205. My goal - hit 185 by April.
  • I want to start cross-training. I have begun doing calesthenics in the mornings, but I need to find a suitable Cardio workout for my non-Judo days - Running is a thought, so is cycling, but I am also thinking basketball.
  • If I do achieve my weight loss goals, I want to think about dropping down to the 81KG(178 lbs) weight class. If I can hit 185, sucking down 7 lbs shouldn't be too difficult.

What are your goals for 06'? Do you think I will make mine realistic?

How long you've been on your road to Shodan?

How quickly do you plan to get there?

You probably need to do more Judo than once a week.
