I have been riding every day this year. Today I just past my 1,000 mile marker. This year I am working on being a consistent cyclist and not a ride, then stop then ride again. I will not be focused on speed improvements but I will focus on sustained strength. to that end I am using a Garmin feature for setting short term goals that will help me focus on my long term goal of 10,000 miles this year.
When I set a monthly goal I can see my progress. When I set my weekly goal I can see progress. 200 miles a week will get me to my annual goal. Last year I had a goal of 250 miles a week and I only rode during the week. The ride 250 miles in 5 working days did not work. I will see if this year’s method will work better.
