2011 – What Personal Goals Did I Achieved…

17 12 2011

….This isn’t my now customary look back over the year.

What it is, however, is a look back at what goals I have achieved over the course of 2011, with one eye on what my 2012 will become.

Why the random pic? Well the Spanish national team score lots of goals yeah ! so ………. (Oh and I have NEVER EVER Wore a soccer jersey so small)

So, what have I achieved ?

Lose 40 Pounds in 2011 – Done………In fact I SMASHED this one some time ago, Thanks Paul for the challenge !

Finish the Mottram Moor Climb in under 7 Mins (Current PB 8 Mins 22 Seconds)…..In Febuary I got this down to 5 Mins 22 seconds, In July I did it in 4 mins 58 seconds !

Weigh less than 200 Pounds DONE

Wear Medium Tops – DONE

Wear 15″ Collar Shirts – Done

Promote cycling and weight loss to a room of Morbidly Obese adults ….. In May I did a motivation  speaking  gig….more to come I feel.

Never gain more than 1 pound in a week in 2011 – Done …

Ride a roller coaster again …Done with style and gusto riding everything at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, something I’d not done BEFORE I was obese.

Fit in a size 34 pants DONE

Commute 250 Miles in 5 days………..Done but bloody HELL it HURT !

Get an average speed of over 20 MPH over a 10 Mile commute….Done JUST !!!!

Get my sprint speed to over 40 Mph (Current Best 36.8Mph) – Done 43.3 Mph June 2011

Ride Joel Lane at least once a week…….Done, now the icy is starting to appear I’m not risking that descent again now until the weather warms and the risk of ice goes.

If I don’t lose at least 2 Pounds in a single week I must wear THIS at least once the following week……….I did this until I wasnt safe losing that much weight.

Cycle 15000 Miles …..Done !

Cycle 20000 Miles………Im 4 miles away from this with 5 commutes left, Im calling DONE and this is pretty much the one that means the MOST !

Admit I have a eating disorder Done

Try something I really didn’t like, for a second time –   Done

Ride the Majority of the rides at Blackpool Pleasure Beach – DONE

Improve on my Quickest Normal Commute 17 mins 52 Seconds (Feb 2011)……… as of December 14th it now stands at 16 mins 51 seconds.


Wow, I wasn’t expecting that MANY of my personal goals to be met tbh, I thought I’d had a good all round year on the bike but I didn’t quite realize just how “Successful” I’d been, It’s just set up 2012 to be one HELL of a tasty year for some new goals.

Stay tuned for my year in review and last weeks (and next) ride reports, there is some good stuff planned for both !

Happy Holidays
