I make a lot of goals for myself. Some of them are crazier than others.
My newest goal, to enter the Fitness division at the Texas Shredder in April, seemed like a perfectly reasonable challenge. Figure poses plus a 2 minute dance/gymnastics routine that includes push ups, straddle hold, high kicks and side splits. What a perfect goal for my 40th birthday! What could be easier, right? (And did I mention that I can’t dance or do gymnastics?)
Well check out pictures of the winners from the 2012 IFBB North American Championships:
I’ve been working on my flexibility for two months now and still can’t do a split, and these women are like Ninja cheerleaders from Circque du Soleil!
Of course, my saving grace here is that these women are at the top of the amateur level and I will be, well, at the most amateur amateur level there is. Also, because this division is so challenging, not many people enter it, so in theory I could just show up and drink a beer on stage and still walk home with a trophy…at least on the local level.
But how cool will that be? Not to drink beer on stage – I mean to be able to do at least some of those modified moves by April??? Plus, can you imagine me just randomly showing up at some yoga class at 24 Hour Fitness and bust out a back handspring? Ha! In your face, Ms. Downward Facing Dog!
Anyway that’s what I’m excited/nervous about these days. How about you? Do you have any crazy fitness goals you’re working on?
