    Now my question is of al the people who replied, ave you achieved ur short term goals?


    I ave indeed, my last short term goal was to beat the 2 best players in my club at singles, I did that last nit, I won 23 - 21 and 21 - 19. I beat the 2 of them on the 1 night which I was amazed at. They are both couple grades above me but I beat them. My proudest moment in badminton :cool::D.

    1/ Im close to national standard. Currently would be placed within the top10 Singles Open grade players in my State.
    2/ Footwork,speed and fitness has increased amazingly but still along way to go.
    3/ My big smash is back :D i can aim now just fine tuning the technique to get as much power and angle as possible and work on a high rate of consistancy.
    4/ Iv lost 20kgs so double what my short term goal was.

    5/ Would be confident i can take out A grade titles in Queensland. Unfortunately theres no individual competitions left until next year so ill have to wait till 2010.

    LONG TERM
    1/ Hopefully this will be achieved when the tournaments begin next year.
    2/ Hopefully in 10 months time when nationals are in 2010 i will be strong enough to secure a spot in the State Open Squad.
    3/ Might be achieved by the end of 2010 but more looking at 2011.
    4/ A dream which only time will tell if it can be achieved ;)

    Short Term
    1. Get back in shape (lose 15% body fat, drop weight down to 165lbs, increase stamina, increase muscle)
    2. Get back footwork, then increase efficiency and speed
    3. Get back touch (shot accuracy - net drops, drops)
    4. Get back power

    It's a lot of getting back to my peak and then some.

    Long Term
    1. Increase muscle to help stabilize and protect joints
    2. Maybe start playing tournaments again (only when 1 is done)
