Operation Finish Strong

I've been dogging it for the last 3 months. I started the year strong and met my goals early in the season. I'm the kind of guy that needs an objective to stay motivated.

Time for a new mission: Operation Finish Strong.

2007 Totals (as of Nov 8, 2007):

Activity#WorkoutsDistance (km)Distance (miles)
Swim5170.343.7
Bike842,7551,712
Run119869.2540.2
Total2543,694.52295.9

Round numbers are nice.

So here's the challenge:

I will log 80 km of swimming this year.
I will log 3,000 km of biking this year.
I will log 1,000 km of running this year.
I will weigh 162 lbs on December 24th.

Less than 8 weeks to go.
Approximately 1200 meters/week at the pool.
Approximately 16 km/week on the run.
Approximately 32 km/week on the bike.
Approximately 2000 less junk calories a week.


It Is On.
