Anyway, here is my Christmas list of goals. I once read an article in Runner's World where Bob Kennedy explained that he liked to set a goal for one area of his training that needed improvement, and he'd work on that during to course of a season. I tend to believe in a more holistic approach, as I have a lot that could be improved :-).
As far as the strength goes, I guess my point is to be better about developing my core muscles, as well as my arms. I am mostly looking for less weight and more reps with the arms and upper body to help pull me along during races. I have never been a buff guy, and I am not looking for that, but clearly I need to get rid of some of that flab. Plus, I have found weight training is great for burning calories and controlling weight.
