I’ve never fully understood the practice of setting goals only in the beginning of the new year… Setting, achieving and monitoring set goals is a continuous process. Still, I’d like to share my ‘bigger’ freediving goals for 2010. I’ve thought them over since late November when I started a more organized training.
0) Have fun, travel a lot, meet new people, improve constantly
1) CWT – 60 + m
2) DYN – 150+ m
3) DNF – 100+ m
4) STA – 6+ minutes
I know that these goals are ambitious, but at the same time they ARE achievable. I remember what Wolfang Güllich (among the greatest sport climbers of all time, died in 1992) said about training: ‘The hardest part of the training is making the decision to start training at all”. Nicely said. It really turns down to finding and understanding your motivation and devising a plan to lead you along the way. I guess that’s how it works, considering my experience with committing to a set of goals…
