A couple days ago, I detailed my bike fitting(s) and new components. I am doing all of this because I want to enjoy my cycling more, yes. But also because I signed up to ride in the San Diego Century ride in late May. That race has three distances, 37, 66, and 103 miles. I can actually do any of those for what I paid but I am planning on doing the 66. Since the longest I've ridden to date is 40 miles, I'd best start ramping up!
So what do I do? I make a plan. What is better than a plan with stuff I can check off? Here it is.
all numbers in miles
You can see from the colored cells that cross-training is well-represented in this plan. No more tight focus which leads to imbalance and injury. Been there, done that.
I just noticed that I will be unavailable on Sunday so I am going to miss the first workout on my schedule. That one will never be checked off, bummer! I'll start with that 20 mile ride next Wednesday.
I hope that I still have energy on Sundays after a workout every day since Wednesday. If not I'll switch it up. But if so, I like this plan. Updates will be posted here of course.
