1. Updating my LOOK 595 Ultra. New seat, seat mast parts, Super Record 11, stem/cap/expander.
2. Retül fitting. Way overdo for a serious fitting.
3. Hired a coach and will start a program.
4. New cycling computer. I haven't used one in a year+, and the Garmin 705 I got when it first hit the market needs to permanently die!
5. Serious weight loss that has creeped in due to amany reasons over the last 18-24 months.
6. I turn 49 in August 2019. I have some seriously challenging rides scheduled for my 50th year. Hence the coach and weight lost before I even get to August.
7. More importantly, I want toget more consistant with meditation and letting go of things I cannot change while becoming the hero in my own story!!

Anyone else??
Looking through old
Threads, I ran into this one from Jan and was curious as to where everyone that had plans are in term of their own personal Agenda/journey.

1. Updated some minor things including the fit, but will Leave the drivetrain alone and has become My dedicated trainer bike. Bought a Look 785 Huez RS instead
2. Did the fitting. Was surprised of so little bike changes. Changes in my shoe cleats were another story.
3. This has been a journey. Almost switched coaches at one point. Has worked out well since! Improving considerably!!
4. Bought a Garmin 1030. Frankly, I should have bought the smallest that recorded all the numbers as I hardly even look at it
5. Have lost 30 lb since Jan and another 15 to go before mid August. Also went from vegetarian to full vegan a month ago. Best thing I’ve done!!!
6. Schedule made and on track
7. Work in progress!!

I had one "resolution" in my head - to have a less serious approach to cycling and just appreciate every ride. so far I manage just OK - I stopped writing down daily distances, and I hardly ever check how much kms I've done during a ride (I got rid of a bike computer circa more than 15 years ago 8)). I also planned to start eating healthier, but I'm just a sucker for a home made neapolitana (esp when it gets really hot) and my wife tells me our kitchen slowly turns into a pizza joint... :oops:
