At the moment i’m looking at my mileage mainly…
I’m shooting for 5,000km in the year – a bit of a step up from this year, and obviously subject to avoiding injury etc. Targets on a month by month basis as follows…
which, if I’ve got my maths right should come in at 5,000km. Not a massive amount by some peoples standards I admit, but it’s a 20% step up from my targets this year, and I’ve failed to achieve them for the first 8 months of they year (admittedly due to injury and illnesses) so I think any more might be a little optimistic.
My other goals are
1 – to continue losing weight at a sustainable level, working towards the weight target goals i.e.
Start Weight – 397.7lb – 23rd July 2011
Mini Goal 1 – 350lb – Achieved 27th September 2011
Mini Goal 2 – 315lb – under way
Mini Goal 3 – 280lb – hey, 20 Stone is a landmark to me
Mini Goal 4 – 240lb – recommended max weight for Campag. – Buy a DeRosa c/w Record 11
Goal weight – 210lb – back to my fighting weight.
2 – to try and organise a local version of the “Dunwich Dynamo” – This should be a night ride from our local pub, setting off at midnight, and riding to the coast, hopefully getting there just in time for the sunrise on the shortest Saturday night/Sunday morning in summer… so around 75 miles in around 5 hours. I’ve a couple of mates who like the idea, but need someone to do the organising – if it happens, I think that it’ll be because I did the grunt-work.
3 – just to generally ride longer and further – increasing the time and distance of the rides – if I’m increasing the mileage, I know i’m going to have to get better recovery time as well. This year my mileage and ride time has been “capped” on doctors orders, which means I’ve been riding 6 days a week to get my “fix” and running around like a madman on the 7th day, to get all the regular errands etc. run. If I can ride 4 days a week, for twice as far, I can have a “mad errand day” and 2 days of recovery…
So, that’s it for the moment, though I may dream something else up as well
