Targets lead to habits…

I’ve written before about how I use mileage targets to motivate me to cycle when I really don’t feel like it. The aim, of course, is not the mileage targets themselves but keeping fit through the constant exercise. After a while, though, you just get into the habit and you need the targets less and less. Take this morning. I hit my annual target last week, I’m a bit tired, it was dark and a bit wet, but when I was ready to leave the house at about 8am I got on my bike and cycled to work via Kenilworth – an 8.5 mile ride instead of the direct 2 mile ride. Madness! But it just felt right.
