March is blowing in quickly and for some of us that means we’ve got about 4-6 weeks to get ready for the 1st race of the season…
Time to iron out the kinks and figure out how much damage old man winter has really done to the body!
One thing, I’m doing over the next few weeks is taking some time to really figure out what I hope to achieve throughout the 2013 race season.
I’m actually putting pen to paper and WRITING DOWN some goals….
The SMART kind….
What’s on my list so far?
Here’s a peek:
Shortened transition times….no more picnics only drive-bys! I say this every year, but this time I mean it…I’ve GOT to get in and out of that place in under 90secs this year!
Much improved swim times. I have the specifics written down as we all should, and I’ve worked my ASS off to get where I want them to be so hopefully it will transpire..
To be a more efficient cyclist…again I have all kinds of numbers written down and they seem ridiculously easy, but having just put the quarq on my bike a few weeks ago I realize how inefficient I’ve been these past few years. Speed is great, but ultimately I’ve got to be an efficient engine…and so the work goes on!
There you have it….three long-term objectives for year-end improvement.
Each race will have its own set of goals and ideally they’ll be tied to the BIG 3 so I will always be working to meet my primary objectives.
So what about you?!!
Have you taken a minute to think about what you want to accomplish this year?
What are you gonna do to make it count?
Ride Happy, My Friends!
