Looking back at my goals for 2009, I've not done very well, however my current level of fitness is pretty good, so I think 2010 is going to be a good year.

The main factors in holding back my climbing in 2009 were taking a few months off to get married and not being able to rent a car. Getting married was absolutely worth it, and the level of organisation and stability I have in my life now due to being married will only help in the long run. Although I got a driving licence last year, I was not able to rent a car in 2009 as I hadn't my licence for long enough, that will change now in 2010, and I should be able to make it out and about around the UK to get some cragging in.

So my goals for end of 2010 will be:

- fr 7a redpoint indoors
- V5 (I've done a few V4's towards the tail end of last year)
- a font 6a in font, preferably la marie rose (trip to font planned for April)
- Trad E1 (I've lowered this goal as I've had so little trad experience in the past number of years)
- A few trips to do some trad climbing.

I just got 9 out of 10 climbers make the same mistakes, and I hope that will give me some good training motivation for early in the year.
