Let's revisit those goals...
Get down to 190 lbs. by October 1st, 2008 (rate of one pound per week). DONE!
Get down to 185 lbs. by December 1st, 2008. Almost there.
Maintain sub-185 lbs. Indefinitely. Eventual target is to get under 180. Time will tell.
Maintain a reasonable riding schedule (at least twice a week) of at least 3 to 5 hours per week for remainder of 2008. So far so good. Lunchtime rides work well. Had a couple of ten-day breaks due to traveling and work at home but no biggie. Feeling strong.
Ride to Bill and Audreys’ from home by Spring, 2009 DONE! Much easier ride than I thought. Now need to do it the opposite direction to feel studly.
Ride to Mt. Hamilton and back from home by Summer, 2009 Quite likely will have this heavy-climbing 60-mile ride knocked out by the end of the year, weather permitting.
Do a metric century by December 2008. See above.
Do at least one overnight trip (unsupported) by end of Summer, 2009 Have a trip loosely in the works being planned.
