Thumbs up Uni Goals for 2011!

What are yours?

A few of mine are:
  1. Do another century and beat my last time.
  2. Climb Fargo Hill again without a dismount and as little "zig-zagging" as possible.
  3. Learn at least 5 flatland tricks, like rolling wraps, flips and spins.
  4. Attend more uni events, like the AZ MUni weekend, and meet more great people who love uni!
  5. Find new and awesome places to ride MUni, like Whistler.
  6. Continue promoting our sport as much as possible

  1. My first Century (June 5; join me!)
  2. Sufficient training to make #1 fun
  3. Not missing two NAUCCs in a row (might be hard due to other trips scheduled and lack of vacation time)

Bump!

What have you guys done on you lists?

I haven't done much on my list. I probably would've been closer if I hadn't been operated. Also, there's a few things I could've done if I tried. The year is still not done yet! I'm hoping I can do all the flatland stuff before the year ends!

That was my list, now separated with the stuff I wont do this year, the stuff I did, and the stuff I could do this year.
Done:
-DoubleFlip
-Explore more to find more Trials spots!
Do-able:
-360 on a 6 set
-180 on a 9 set(?)
-FullOutFlip (I dont really like flatland, but this trick is awesome)
-SideJump (or sidespin, just a side????)
-360 unispin on wheel
Not possible this year:
-120cm sidehop
-Do 500 hours of unicycling (I'm not even at 400 and my riding has slowed done since my surgery)

Ok, let's see how I've done...

Thanks to my heel stress fracture last July I've definitely averaged more than one ride a week, in fact I've ridden almost 1300 miles this year thus far (granted, mostly road mileage).

This would have definitely happened but the event got canceled! I couldn't find an alternative event that fit in my busy running schedule and then after I got injured...

I had the chance to make this happen when I was out in Colorado last summer, unfortunately that 135 mile foot race through Death Valley took more out of me than even I thought possible! Plus there was still a bit too much snow on my peak of choice and then I went t Moab and got injured so it didn't matter. Next summer it's on!

Still making progress. My 100 mile road century ride was another step in the right direction; confidence building. Now it's just a matter of finding the right window of opportunity to execute my goal. Unfortunately it looks like the next two summers I'm going to be traveling over seas... Perhaps this would make a good 40th birthday present to myself?

Another goal is to organize at least one MUni and one 36er event this year in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. For MUni a good place for a group ride could be Simi Valley's "Hummingbird" or "Chumash", or Cheeseboro in Agoura Hills, and the 36er ride could be along the beach bike paths. It would be great to get at least 10 riders for each event.

Normally I don't like to put my goals out there too far ahead, but I will this time. I've heard people claim that stating your goals makes you more likely to accomplish them because people hold you accountable, and others say you're less likely to accomplish them because the satisfaction of stating them reduces motivation. Whatever.

I only have one: make an attempt at the 24-hour distance record. Either this fall, or in 2012.

I believe it is currently held by Sam Wakeling, at 454km (282mi). http://redwelly.co.uk/?page_id=4

That record was set in Sept 2007; has stood long enough!

Thanks for reminding me of this amazing accomplishment! It appears that all of the miles of riding were done on a 1/4 mile track. That would be 1,128 times around! No hills to climb but man, you would think that it would get so insanely monotonous! But records are meant to be broken, so I wish you all the luck! The only thing I'm not sure of is if he did it on an ungeared 36er; it appears so, from what I can see in the pics and video.

my 2011 uni goals

Unfortunately I am bit of a season rider--I never ride in winter because Virginia is always wet and cold, and I hate the cold! So my goals in no particular order:

1. Do more flatland practicing indoors in my basement during bad weather
2. Learn to unispin
3. Learn to crankflip
4. master gliding (i'm 80% there)
5. increase my high jump for trials
6. learn stand up WW
7. attempt to learn crank rolls/rolling wraps
8. BC Wheel for 1 mile...if I can find the perfect hill for it (my record is 1500 ft)

Events:
2011 Congress of Jugglers (for my 5th consecutive time)
2nd annual NY Unicycle Festival (if they have another. it's a blast!)
