The Race to 10,000

So I was looking at my TrainingPeaks software last night (after a 27 mile ride in the pouring rain with Kevin D.) and I noticed that I’m at 6,200 miles for the year. That’s easily more miles on my bike than on my car. So I decided that I’m setting a goal of at least 10,000 miles for 2008. To hit 10,000 I basically need to average at least 225 miles a week for the rest of the year. That seems feasible right now with the long days (daylight) of summer. However, with two kids at home and less sunlight, 225 miles becomes more difficult in the late fall. Therefore, I’m going to try and knock out as many miles as possible while the schedule permits and then use my eMotion Rollers when fall comes. I’ll take care of 112 of those miles on my single speed as I raise money for the Children’s Medical Center Dallas at TX Tough.
