Progress must be measured objectively. Like revenge, it is best served cold.
Unemotionally looking at the numbers, I should be happy. I've lost 22 pounds since October. My FTP (in the aerobars) is up 38 points. My pace per mile at aerobic pace has dropped 1:45. My pants that were tight in November are literally falling off my arse.
Set Your Own Targets
Bobby McGee once told me, "Targets should not become burdens, but rather a guiding light to your goals."
My winter targets have been achieved except in my best sport - swimming. I am three pounds away from my goal of dropping 25 this winter; with a chance to grab a few more pounds before the end of April.
Never cease from:
1) Dreaming for all you desire and pushing toward it.
2) Go after what you really want.
3) Passionately. Life is empty without passion.
"Consider each target achieved as a milestone on the journey of success." - Bobby McGee
I know where I am headed. Does your coach? Do you?
