Cyclist's New Year's Resolutions

Postby cgee » Thu Feb 08, 2007 8:31 pm


I know it's February already, but here is a good list of resolutions for cyclists who train for racing.

1) I will allow myself proper rest and recovery time to avoid overtraining.
2) I will remain focused on my goals throughout the season.
3) I will have confidence in my abilities and training at all times.
4) I will complete my daily workouts.
5) I will NOT try to make up workouts missed due to illness or injury.
6) I will improve my diet.
7) I will stay seated while climbing during the base period whenever possible.
8)I will keep my upper body still and relaxed at all times when riding.
9) I will work to improve my cadence and pedaling efficiency.
10) I will have my best season ever!

I don't know who wrote this, so I can't reference it. Have a great day!

looks like good goals. there's a thread for our personal cycling goals for 2007, you could post them there and we'll make sure to revisit them at the end of the season 8)

have you got cyclecraft? it's worth picking up even if you're dyed in the wool.. you'll still learn something.
i'd advise anyone, if the only ever buy one item of safety equipment, to get that book :)
