First Hundred Mile Month

100.4 miles.

Woo Hoo! Finished with a very nice coastal ride with Lu this morning.

As a goal it is admittedly a small one but significant for a recovering meathead. It's now official, I'm spending way more time on the bike than in the gym.

We road all 3 of my days off; 2 road rides and 1 very nice trail ride on the Gary Fishers.

Ok, so what's next?I think a 25 mile ride is definitely in order. My legs feel fantastic and I'm getting more and more comfortable on the bike. I'm even learning a little about sports foods for rides (in fact I've got a post percolating about my search for the perfect ride food. Coming soon to a theatre near you. Please check listings for times and dates).

After that? I definitely want to do 1000 miles this year. I'm off to a good start, just under 200 miles so far. A Century is in the mix as well. (Mike, I'll be calling you about coming down for that ride you mentioned).

All in all, a good start to the new year.

Now if I can only resist the bench press temptations.

Joe Weider, get thee behind me!

Congrats. I still haven't done a century yet, but I may do one at some point this year. Optimally it would be the Hotter Than Hell 100, the most famous one in this area, but then again I'm not a real heat lover.
