I have this theory that I'm more likely to fulfill my desires if I don't write them down, so I am happy to report that I completed all of my goals for 2011 plus a few extra

I'm sneaking out of work today to go for a muni ride, how's that for fulfilling?

The things that I managed to do:

get 360 sidespins consistent (in fact I've landed one in-in)
grind bigger rails and eventually hand rails

What i can't do (yet):
get 540 unispins consistent
crankflip and hickflip down stairs
sidehop at least 1.1 m consistently (The highest I got was 0.95m at the high jump comp at nationals)
get better at hopping to and from skinnies and posts - I cant really remember any time this year when I worked on this.

The things that I no longer care about since I'm trying to focus more on street and trials than flat
540 sidespins
720 unispins
varial rolls
improve my rolling combos

A big 2012 goal for me is to compete in a 100km MTB race and beat at least some of the field.

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?

5. Try to get some of my friends interested in unicycling.
I got #1 and #3. #2 didn't work out because of #3. I'm annoyed that I didn't get much better at #4. I think that's partly due to #3 as well. #4 will be #1 for next year. #5 is difficult. It's hard to convince people to stick with it unless it's their idea.

Muni: I think I got it

Backwards figure eight: Postponed to 2012 - a few days ago we had the last indoor traing in the club and I managed to do a full circle backwards (diameter aprox. 4 meters) to one side. To the other side I could not get a full circle, but it was close (why is it so difficult?)

29": I have ridden a few short rides, but it is hard to mount, although I'm getting better. My jumping leg is also the leg where the knee is not 100% percect, which means that it can be rather sore after many mounting tries.

Best regards and happy new year to all of you,
