Gooooooaaaaaalsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!! So we are coming the end of 2014 and Mr. Josh needs to get some goals & events on the calendar!
I made some changes to my goals. I decided to wait on a road bike till end of 2015. So I am working the commuter bike and mountain bike as my primary rides for 2015.
So you ask .. “Why am I announcing this on da WWW?” One thing I learned from my past training is… When you make your goals public, you tend to stick with them. Settings goals, announcing your intentions, making them visible to the public, and putting it in writing helps me be accountable to myself. I also like looking back and seeing what I have accomplished in the past also. Give it a try. You might be surprised.
1. Continue to bike commute and add more days. Goal is to ride 4-5 days a week. Right now I only do 2-3.
2. Long distance on the Mountain Bike. Going to start riding John Wayne trail this spring. Goal is to get to 100+ miles on the mtn bike before end of the Summer. During this time I will working on setup on my bike, mapping and gps 101.
3. Work on fueling for long distance riding – nutrition & hydration. This is going to be a good time for me to try different food during the long rides. Hammer will be my primary, but I need to also look into alternatives.
4. Maintain good stretching and mobility exercises. This is a Big one for me. I need to keep doing what I am doing now. My injury really ticked me off this year, so every day I do strengthening and stretches. This is really important if I am going to keep cycling.
