My Goals for the 2013 Race Season

Happy New Year! I hope you are enjoying a safe and prosperous start to the new year. I am already thinking about my goals for the 2013 cycling race season, which begins in only 3.5 weeks! Here are my process (training) and outcome (racing) objectives for the upcoming season. This should provide you with a good example of the goal setting process for competitive athletes:

Training (Process) Goals

  1. Set a PB for miles ridden in a calendar year (5,164 current PB)
  2. Set a PB for hours ridden in a calendar year (305 current PB)
  3. Complete a 10-mile Field Test at 250 watts AP
  4. Achieve a 3.75:1 power-to-weight ratio
  5. Climb South Mountain 3 times in one workout
  6. Complete a 3-mile Pinnacle Peak Hill Interval in less than 11:30

Racing (Outcome) Goals

  1. Win a medal in the 5K TT at the Senior Olympics
  2. Win a medal in the 10K TT at the Senior Olympics
  3. Finish Mt. Lemmon TT in 55:00
  4. Finish South Mountain TT in 24:30
