My goal is to get you thinking about goals
I have always been a person who likes to set a challenging goal and work towards it consistently. It is part of the fun for me.
My recent 'goals' have just been to ride more, either due to recovering from injury or to try and build my general fitness. I used to set more specific goals in the early days of RLC (eg learn to wheelie) but got disillusioned by failures to gain the desired skill.
I have a goal of being able to ride a wheelie for 100 yards. I've created sub goals of 10 yards, 25 yards, 50 yards, etc. It definitely helps keep discouragement at bay to focus on the next sub goal. The same applies to my goal of bunny hoping 24" consistently and correctly.
Looking forward to reading more about the science of long-term goal setting for mtb!
Yes Griff. When I have taken the various personality assessments out there I always come out as some version of being driven by achievement. I guess it is just the way I am wired.
Seems like my MTB goals are always taking a backseat to either work or home priorities! Is rather frustrating Griff!
