February goals

I feel the need to ramp up my targets a little bit to make sure I'm on track for the training volume that I will need to complete Ironman Florida in November. At the same time, I want to be cautious about a) burning myself out too early in the year; and b) setting unobtainable goals.

So here's my tiered goal system for February 2006:

Tier 1. Bare minimum goals for consistency, every week, come hell or high water, illness or blizzard. I'm not going to increase these for my 2006 minimum weekly goals, just for this month:
  • SWIM: 2000 m/week
  • BIKE: 25 miles/week
  • RUN: 10 miles/week
  • NUTRITION: intake logged 5/7 days
Tier 2. Aspirational goals: What I'm hoping to complete this month, every week:
  • SWIM: 4000 m/week
  • BIKE: 50 miles/week
  • RUN: 20 miles/week
  • NUTRITION: intake logged 7/7 days
Tier 3. Monthly total goals: What I'm hoping to achieve for the entire month, including 1 or 2 long sessions or extra workouts in each discipline:
  • SWIM: 10,000+ meters
  • BIKE: 220+ miles
  • RUN: 80+ miles
  • NUTRITION: intake logged 20+ days
  • CORE: 2000 crunches
  • 2 upper body dumbbell workouts
  • 2 lower body freeweights/machines workouts
  • 2 track workouts
