I made resolutions last year. If you made resolutions, post your resolution and then grade yourself! Here is my grade break down of my adherence to the resolutions I made.
1) I won’t force myself to train through injuries or sickness. Unless I’m feeling at least 85%, I will recuperate.
I get an A on this one. I’m seriously proud of myself. When injured, it takes every bit of discipline I have to not go balls to the wall even more than when I’m healthy. I had an illness, knee injury, and tightness in my shoulder this year, and held back pretty well. Long enough to get back to 85% at least.
2) I will get at least two tournament victories at the Intermediate Skill level.
Solid A. I got 6 victories at the Intermediate level. To be clear, I don’t mean I WON 6 tournaments. I won six matches spread among three tournaments, earning two second place finishes and one third place finish. I still have a LOT to learn in this sport, even at the intermediate level.
3) I will get Emotional Fitness Rehabilitation (my psychotherapeutic creation) published in an academic journal.
C. This goal wasn’t completely neglected, just put on the back burner a little. We are submitting the final version to a journal sometime in January. Whether or not it becomes accepted is another story.
4) Same as last year, I will reserve Friday nights for my beautiful wife.
I get a B here. Most Fridays have been just Katchie and I. With that said, I have worked late on Fridays quite a few times this year.
Your turn. Grade yourself!
