Must move legs

by on July 28, 2010

This Ride: 31.15 miles
Kona Distance: 2,285 miles
Month to date: 497.1 miles
2010 Total: 2751.5 miles
Pace to 5254.8 mile goal in 2010:(Exactly on goal pace)

As it turns out, I couldn’t ride yesterday.  I attended a funeral in Syracuse, NY and spent 12+ hours in a car … there and back in one day.  I really needed to move my legs this morning.

I slept in about an hour, then was out the door before 7 am for a planned 30 mile ride.  My initial goal was to keep my heart rate below 140 and simply do a ride, but soon I was moving faster and just tried to keep it below 150 (except for hills and when I completely zoned out).  My mind was mostly disengaged this morning.  I pedaled, stayed aware of hazards, and that was about it.  It was pretty humid out and near the end of the ride I left a trail of sweat drops in my wake.

It looks like I’m pretty much on target for my goal of at least 550 miles this month.  Kudos and encouragement to Mike B (Severna Park Peloton).  He is within spitting distance of 1000 miles for the month, a great milestone!
