In a limited week, struggled to get momentum going. I felt like I was constantly getting pulled in multiple directions. This week won’t be much different. With only a half day in the office on Tuesday and then on the road the rest of the week, this one is going to be tough.

Did get to participate in my first CrossFit Open workout, 17.1. I was surprised that I was nervous going in to it as I have no illusions of competing. But that did make it fun, almost like a real competition.

Also managed to get registered for Robie. Sold out in about 12 minutes!

Goals for the year

  • Run a sub 6 minute mile (start of this year is 6:23)
  • Get Fran time under 5:30 (start of this year is 6:05)
  • Validate a new idea via the Will It Fly process
  • Volunteer in Katy’s K class twice and in her first grade class twice
  • Volunteer in Matthew’s K class twice
  • Read or listen to 6 books

Goals for this quarter

  • Compete in The Open (Master’s Division)
  • Begin an aerobic program
  • Take a paid marketing course of some sort to see what a program looks like
  • Begin the Will It Fly process to validate course idea
  • Put together the outline of a basic training course for digital marketing and find one business to try it out

  • Finish and review Extreme Ownership
