Five for fifty
So, my 50th Birthday is about 13 months away.  Being the goal oriented creature that I am, I've been thinking about my fitness plans for 50 for some time.  Since one way to help you remain accountable to your goals is to share them, here we go.  These are my "5 for 50 Fitness Goals". 

1) 50 Chin-ups.  I started the program last week.  100 pushups took me 5 months, and I started from 40 consecutive.  I honestly don't know if I'll make 50 chin-ups.  I can do precisely 0 unassisted at the moment.  I love a challenge!

2) 100 Pushups (clean).  I can do 100 consecutive, but they're not pretty.  The goal here is to slow them down, and keep my form.

3) 15% Body Fat.  That's not super-lean for a guy, but I think it's just fine for an old codger.  This will be the toughie for me, though.  I haven't done a check lately, but I'm assuming my lean body mass is still in the 150-160 pound range.  That puts me at a goal weight of 172-184.  Yowza!  20 more pounds to lose, minimum. 

4) Fun Run in 55.  This is the 4.5 mile run up and down the Treman Park Gorge trail.  I've never been a fast runner.  My personal best for this was about 48 minutes, many years ago, with much younger knees.

5) Five certifications, all current.  This is really about aerobics.  I want to keep my Group Fitness and Spinning certifications current, and  add Zumba, Kickboxing and Personal Training.  I've got my Zumba and AFAA Kickbox Certification classes scheduled already.

So there it is.  I'll try to post monthlyish status updates on my 5 for 50.

Current Mood: determined
Current Music: Bachman Turner Overdrive, "Taking Care of Business"

This sounds like a great plan.

That last picture reminds me of House and makes me think that you are studying to be House.
