Increasing the Daily Miles

by on May 5, 2014

Two things are moving me to increase my daily miles.  This is the last month of the Malaria Campaign Mileage Challenge (I’m disappointed in the total miles thus far) and I’m just over 2 months away from my 1,000k ride around Lake Ontario.  I need to get miles in these legs!

I got up 15 minutes earlier this morning and got out the door about 20 minutes earlier than usual and rode a longer route to the Rusty Bridge.  It was darker than it has been for me recently, and it was once again nice to watch the sunrise from the saddle of a bike.  The birds were quite loud this morning.  Bunnies were out in force.  Once the group was all together, we also encountered a deer.  One of these days I won’t be surprised when we hit one of these animals.  We’ve come close often.  Distance on the day was an easy 27.5 miles.

We talked 400k (the ride was this past weekend) and the upcoming LOL (1,000 k).  Hotels and planning for stops really is the challenging logistic right now.  It is a 7:00 pm start.  Mike B and I will ride a shorter 1st day so that we can sleep in the heat of the day.  We will pass others as they sleep some once it grows dark again.

Bible Verses for the Day:

The angel of God who was going before the Israelite army moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud moved from in front of them and took its place behind them. (Exodus 14:19 NRSV)

“He gave her his hand and helped her up. Then calling the saints and widows, he showed her to be alive.” (Acts 9:41 NRSV)
