    Hi every1.

    I have decided to get back into cycling. :)

    I used to be a recreational cyclist but then just decided to leave it. Now, 10 months later, I have decided to commence with my cycling for fun and fitness.

    I would like to know how to go about achieving two of my goals. I want to do a 115km race in Decmber 2006 and 118km race in March 2007. I know I need to get some base miles in.I think about 8-12 weeks should be efficient as I am lazy and over weight.So from now until end of Feb next year, I would do the base training.From March next year, I would like to start training and preparing for the first race in December. Would this be to soon?:confused:

    Another element to consider is winter here by me in the Southern Hemisphere during the months of June-August. I WILL be cycling 5 times a week during summer and and autumn but not sure about winter.

    Any help and tips will be appreciated.

    Happy cycling!!!!;)
