2009 In Review

As the year comes to a close I decided to compile some of the things I achieved into a video. There may be another one as I've still got a bunch of other stuff.
I will note that I did not achieve the goals I had set for myself this year, but I think that was more a case of being overly optimistic than anything else. I did make marked progress toward all of them, I just didn't hit them. A narrower focus on just one may have served me better. I was going for a Beast Challenge, Red Nail Bend, and 100 reps on the 32 kg. in five minutes.
I did bend a Grade 8 Bolt, which is progress. I did pistol a 95 pound bell, press the 36 kg. and pull up the 28 kg. I did hit 20R/20L snatches on the 32 kg. We will see what 2010 brings. I'll be competing in the elite division at the April TSC and will be going for a new 32 kg. snatch test PR.
I feel good about this past year and look forward to what the next will bring.

  1. Congratulations on your many accomplishments over the last year!

    The goals are not so important in their own right but instead set a course of action with a well defined intent.

    I look forward to the coming year as you set new goals and then reading about your next set of yearly accomplishments.
