And for my next trick....

I've been giving some thought to post-competition goals. I always have to have a goal, something to work towards. If I try to just go along, training and eating without a specific purpose in mind, I tend to find that after a while the wheels fall off and I'm skipping training sessions, eating far too many treats and just not achieving anything. Mmm, that would be because I don't know what it IS I'm supposed to be achieving....

Anyway. My long-term goal is going to be to gain more muscle where I need it. For one thing, I want some more junk in my trunk..... in a good way, of course. Pancake-butt syndrome is NOT a good look, and I see it way too often on women in their 50s or older. I plan on reaching my 50th birthday with some serious booty!

I will probably compete again next year, and the muscle-gaining thing is all part of that.

Meanwhile, I need some short-term goals to keep me focused. I don't love running, but I do like to do the odd fun run, as long as I stick to nice short distances. 4-5 km is perfect for me. So I'm thinking that maybe the Sussan Womens' Fun Run on Sunday 7th December would be a good one to aim for.



But then there's that new bike in the garage that I've barely been out on, thanks to the stinky weather. And the SUB Women's Cycle Classic on Saturday 6th December.....



I suppose doing both the same weekend would be a bit much? Hmm....
