need a challenge...

but what? Being a good father seems pretty reasonable but that doesn't start till Jan 2010 though (hopefully).

I need something to tide me over till then as little goals prevent staleness. I'm happy to go for little things.

So far:

1) Don't waste eyes open time. Watch less crap TV and resist the urge to stay up and do pointless things. Make sure time awake is positive (note that I am typing this at 11:45 pm, need to work on #1). Basically this translates as 'get to bed by 10'.

2) Get up Capler on the Pink Singlespeed by christmas (set of exercise books in panniers optional)

3) Hit 17 strokes a length in swimming and be able to swim a 1:30 hundred while breathing every 7 (Bobby - take me on!)

4) Stay on target on the 50 commutes challenge. Hit 15 by Xmas.

Anything to add? What's your micro-challenge? Want to throw down a mini-gauntlet?

cheers gents - i've done the Cwmcarn d-h Tim... but on an XC hardtail very slowly. I think it's a bit different on one of your bikes :)

Al - nice! I'll give the showers a miss, but till take up the pressups challenge. My previous pb was 60 (5 years ago when toying with joining the Marines)... 100 would be satisfying!

no worries on the 17 strokes per length, doing 11 in the 20m pool at the mo so we'll hit 17 together easy...next visit.
