Woe its been a bit busy recently and I haven't had chance to reflect on what I have achieved this year. My goals for this season was to lose weight and take part in some competitive cycling. Well I think I achieved booth of these goals. I have lost 2 stone in weight and kept it off, I took part in my first Mountain Bike event and I have taken part in three time trials.
What have i learnt? I have learnt that goal setting is a huge part of this sport. I set goals and worked hard to achieve them although I have covered less mileage than last year mainly due to being occupied with getting my coaching sorted I am still happy.
It is now time to start thinking forward. I have the Manchester 100 in September and that will be my last event of 2011. I need to think what I want to achieve next year and how I am going to do it. Competitive cycling is one of my goals and I need to use my skills learnt as a coach to start implementing this.
If any one has any ideas for a good winter training programme please drop me a message....
