February Wrap Up

Aside from the head cold, February's been a good month and I've met my expectations. Tonight, I did one more ride to wrap up the past week with 6 days of riding, a total of 123.94 miles. For the month, I rode outside 4 days/144.46 miles and inside 17 days/355.84 miles, a total of 500.30 miles. As hoped, I bagged my first thousand for the year and am currently at 1,050.34 miles in all. Here's the updated chart of my miles distributed by week.

I've started reading the book by Burke shown in my last post and so far I'm finding it very good. It's so clear and answering a lot of the questions that I've had. Hopefully a bit of study will give me a clear idea of what I need to do when I want to maintain and what I need to do when I want to increase intensity. I guess I'm looking for some reassurance that I'm doing the right sort of things in a sustainable way, or learn what to change. Also, I need all the ideas for drills and exercises to try. It's still all about having fun though! I just like to challenge myself!

Pretty impressive stats and with the mind-set of having fun you will sustain this for many months to come. Especially, when it will get warmer and you will be able to ride outside again.

Congratulations on your mileage totals!! I hope you are finally feeling better...it seems to take a long time for this plague to finally go away. Glad you have some good books to enjoy until then!

All of those inside miles are fantastic...what do you watch on tv, or do to help the time go....eg: intervals? HR stuff, or just keep it steady and watch Dr Phil....lol....seriously...maybe reruns of Seinfeld.....I dont know....
