Setting and reaching or exceeding goals
One upon a time in a place close to here I used to ride my bikes a lot, 150 to 200 miles a week between commuting and recreational/fitness rides but the last couple of years it's been tough to get myself motivated to ride 150 miles in 3 months. However now that I have had a correct medical diagnoses for a condition I didn't ever think I had and am on medication to correct it, I feel better than I have felt in years, so now that I feel better, I am going to try to set a new goal for cycling, 1200 between now and the new year. There are 31 weeks left in this year, so that breaks down to 38 miles a week. I feel this is a very realistic goal for me to achieve and perhaps even exceed. One of my local routes is 30 miles, I figure is I can ride twice a week before or after work or on a day off, I should be able to exceed 38 miles a week some weeks.
How do you achieve your cycling goals?
