A few weeks ago I was able to free up some time so I could get back on the bike and to add in some weight lifting. I engaged with a good trainer to make sure my form and approach is correct. This gym and trainer isn't the type that they just put you on a few machines and check their phone while you do some reps. He is very engaged and interested in my goals. So... goals. He wanted me to write mine down so he can read them and then he could help me reach them. Turns out I had just written them down so I'm going to share them. The reason I'm sharing them is that they can easily be translated into my bike riding.

The #1 goal from which all else flow from (for me) is consistency. When I can be consistent it all just works. When I can't I let things slip.
