First....congratulations. You're doing the right thing for your body and mind. While I can appreciate using stats as a marker to measure progress, I would advise patience. Your improvement in fitness, and thus stats, will take a while. In the meantime, concentrate on learning cycling skills. Learn how to use your gears, how to pedal efficiently and how to handle your bike. Spend this first year enhancing technique. Read about these things and ask people who are more experienced. Exactly what you have done here. Exercise, along with eating in unprocessed and healthy foods...can only help your health. And, in the off season, if you have one, find a way to exercise. Next year you will be healthier and reporting cycling gains. I'm confident of that. Above all, enjoy the ride.
