    2008 goals

    There have been a few threads about goals for the next year. I have a goal for the rest of this one.

    I have 2 more work days before the beginning of national holidays here - Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Our weekend is Friday and Saturday. So I have 5 days off. Wednesday I go back to UK, pick up my kids and the car (Deegee, a 1995 mercedes wagon, sturdy and the last car I hope to own) and go to ski in France. I want to be as fit as I can be - I'm doing ok, but with all this time off I'd like to put a few miles in my legs, because skiing with the younger generation who are, I'm glad to say, fit and athletic, I don't want to hear "We'd better wait for dad"..

    So - 3 metric centuries, 2 imperial ones. I've said it, so it must be so.

    I'll keep you posted

    Peace, y'all

    Will a spin class once a week count as a goal? I'd say twice a week, but travel might get in the way.

    My goal was to ride 2000 miles in 2008. I just achieved it with 3 weeks to go! Between commuting, running errands and weekend benefit & joy rides, I had a very satisfying year!

    I had only two goals for 2008. The second one was to ride 6,000 miles, and I reached that a couple of weeks ago.

    The first goal was to survive the year. That one's looking promising, too, but I won't be able to claim that until New Year's Day.

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    6,000 miles, cool. I don't think I can find that much time and still work full time. My goal was 4,000 miles for the year, should make that this weekend. Did want to get in a second century ride, that will have to wait until next year.

    Next years goal, 4500 miles, 2 centuries, one tour of 5 - 7 days from New Jersey to Morgantown WV, or the other way doesn't matter much to me.
