cycling 100 miles: step one



Suited up for my ride

Suited up for my ride

Over the next four weeks I am going to fine-tune my cycling training for a great cause and an exciting event. I am joining the local CBS television affiliate, Team KCBS, to raise money for and participate in the Audi Best Buddies Challenge which raises money for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Each week I will share a different aspect of my training and event preparation. I will highlight my training plan, nutrition and lululemon clothing I use while riding!

This week I would like to talk about goal setting. Goals should be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely. My goal is to ride my bike 100 miles down the beautiful California coast, from Carmel to Hearst Castle in San Simeon, on September 12th with my husband and KCBS team.

The route for the 100 mile challenge!

By following my training plan, staying healthy and determined, my goal will be reached. I will enjoy every amazing step of the way!

The first step to achieving your goals is to write them down. Dream big, stay focused, and keep moving forward!!

Can’t wait, Eileen. Rachelle and I (from the Carlsbad store) are currently training for the Lighthouse Century Ride in San Luis Obispo Sept. 26. Would be great to read how our training regimes compare.
