Have not seen a 2022 thread for goals yet, so building off the 2021 “what worked” thread, let’s start one up!!! If I missed the thread, Other Chad can kindly delete this one
*** Overall Health and Fitness ***
Commit to workout consistency including rest days. 2021 saw completion of a two-year daily workout streak. 2022 is time to return to the basics of rest and recovery.
Pay attention to nutrition and fueling.
*** Gym Goals ***
- Complete a full 4 months of upper and lower strength training starting in December. That is long, but I want to do a full on strength program augmented by endurance rides on the bike and see how that works for me in terms of overall fitness.
*** Bike Goals ***
- Rebuild MLSS to 230 watts or higher with a TTE of 48 minutes or greater. It’s been a long time since I’ve dedicated enough time to training to have an FTP over 230w and I miss that.
Bike Training Sub-Goal A: Once weather turns positive increase training time to 10 or more hours per week. Focus on LT1 / Zone 2 training principles.
Bike Training Sub-Goal B: Try an Empirical Cycling style VO2max block.
*** Competitive Goals ***
Compete in a minimum of 8 road ITT’s with at least one 40km event. Racing has been on vacation for two seasons. We hope to have our TT series up and running again in 2022 and its time to push the pedals in anger again.
Compete in at least 2 mountain bike races. Think this is a future direction for competitive outlet and need to test the waters.
