Goals from 5 years ago!

Last night I was looking back at some of my old blog posts. Theres over 1000 on this site, admittedly over 300 are now in draft as I don’t feel comfortable sharing them anymore. But I came across one that surprised me. I’m always setting goals, but its very rare I look back at them to see if I’ve achieved them.

I came across THIS post in which I set myself a few goals which were:

  • Gain my degree
  • Have another child
  • Get married
  • Own a house
  • Be happy
  • Train in reflexology
  • Own a doggy
  • Do a skydive
  • Cycle London to Brighton again
  • Run a marathon
  • Visit Australia
  • Visit New York

So how have I done?

Well in the middle of July I will find out if I have my degree or not yet.

I had a 2nd child.

I’m happy.

I have done not 1 but 2 skydives.

I did cycle London to Brighton again and am considering it for next year too.

I’ve run 3 marathons.

So that leaves visiting New York, Australia, Owning a dog, training in reflexology, owning a house and getting married to complete in the next 5 years, I reckon thats possible right? Although a couple of those I no longer have the urge to do so I guess I’ve kind of reframed my goals a bit now.

Things I’d love to do in the next 5 years?

  • Finally get a sub 60 10k would be nice!
  • Run a sub 2 hour half marathon.
  • Complete an ultra!
  • Walk up Snowdon
  • Do a sprint triathlon

Funny how times have changed. A few years ago I wouldn’t have thought all my goals would be fitness/physical related! I wonder what they will be in another 5 years time!
