Happy New Year

Another year has gone by. Time to own up to my 2007 goals and lay out my 2008 goals. Here we go:

2007 Results
1. Learn to juggle 4 balls - This was my weakest effort but I'd say technically I reached my goal. I didn't start trying until December 15 and was really bad until the 29th. On the 29th and 30th I spent about 30 minutes practicing and can go up to 30 seconds without dropping a ball, but usually more like 5-10 seconds. I'll take a video and post it in the next couple weeks for proof.
2. Run 1,000 miles - SUCCESS! I ran a grand total of 1,219 miles this year for an average of 3.34 miles per day.
3. Do 50,000 push-ups - SUCCESS! I did a total of 51,110 push-ups for an average of 140.03 push-ups per day. This was a very annoying goal since I had to consistently work at it every single day. I noticed a huge amount of improvement over the year. Initially I couldn't do more than 30 in a set and after a few sets I could barely hit 20. Soon, 30 became my norm and I could push myself to 40. By the end of the year 50 was my normal set and I maxed at 100 (going as fast as I could and not doing each up and down justice). The first 5 months of the year I was motivated and averaged close to 170 per day, but by the end of the year I was so sick of push-ups I could puke. I'll give a graphical analysis of my daily count later this week.

2008 Goals
1. Learn to juggle 5 balls
2. Run 750 miles
3. Bike 1,500 miles
4. Do 30,000 sit-ups: 82 per day, I haven't decided how to count crunches yet
5. Do 5,000 pull-ups/chin-ups: 14 per day
6. Weigh less than 185 lbs at some point (currently 200 lbs)

I hope you don't mind, but I pretty much stole all your ideas for new years resolutions.
