I’m not sure why I’ve put this post off but I have. I’ve actually been thinking about and planning my goals for 2012 for several weeks now but never got around to actually writing a post. Maybe it was the 10-12 hour days I’ve been working that has something to do with it. Maybe I was just lazy. My wife would say I was procrastinating. She knows me very well.

Originally this post was going to be very detailed to show you the plan behind the goals but a moment of sanity hit me and I decided to split into two posts. This one where I tell you what my goals for 2012 are and another to show you my training plan for 2012. If you follow me on Twitter you might have caught a sneak peek I posted.

There will be no long explanations here trying to describe my reasoning behind these goals other than the fact that in order for me to lose this freaking weight I need to ride. In no particular order, here are my 2012 cycling and weight loss goals:

  1. Ride 5000 miles.
  2. Lose 30 pounds.
  3. Ride a century.
  4. Ride 500 miles in a month.

As I said earlier, I have a more detailed post coming that will explain my 2012 training plan so look for it soon.

How many of you have set your goals for the year? If you have what are they? If not, what are you waiting for?
