Well, this year has been a major headache for my biking program. Bitterly cold, rainy, the combination of the two…one just can’t win.
I have managed to get out a few times…last Friday night I did a full 31-mile ride after work and tonight I did 17 miles.
Considering I can now do 31 miles AFTER work and still not wake up in any pain the next morning, I think I’m ready to attempt a 50-mile ride like the Tour of Saints. I especially like this one since, unlike the Ironman where you had to decide 4 miles into it if you wanted to take the long route, this course allows you to delay that decision until mile 31, which seems perfect to me. That way, you can do most of your ride, and if you’re ready to attempt the full challenge, you may do so after evaluating how well you’ve done thus far.
