Done and Done

Badger Trail

2010 went pretty well. I accomplished two arbitrary but important goals right near the end.

First, I had thought it might be nice to ride a total of 4000 miles on a bicycle in a calendar year. I came pretty close in 2007 when I set out to ride 3650 and succeeded. This year came out to 4120 or thereabouts, including my first century ride (followed closely by a second) and a number of rides over 60 miles. Maybe 5000 for next year. Maybe the Unnamed Epic. Who knows?

Second, I had decided at some point that I would like to end the year at "170 pounds of mostly muscle." Happily, I now weigh 168 pounds and, thanks to a couple of strength training classes, feel stronger than I have for years. So there you go.

The bad news is that I didn't give the garden or the house as much love as they deserved, but I'll get back to those this year. I promise.

Go Sconny! Satisfying to meet some goals. I did my first century too, but only got in 3K. And it would be Fab for me to be 168. Good luck with the winter races.

That's quite a coincidence. It's fun though...hoping to do a couple more next year.
