I decided to start putting my routines up here and keeping track of them in hopes of keeping it up and making my goal of doing a 75 mile ride in May of this year.

One thing I can tell you is that this little ride today was alot harder than I thought it was going to be. I was actually going to try to do 15 miles today, but once I completed the 7.13 miles, I decided it wasn’t such a good idea to push myself the first time out.

I really had to work my arse off to get to the 7 mile mark before my 30 minute deadline. I just passed the finish line at 29:59 – 7.00 miles.

So, doing that math, it will take me a little over 5 hours to complete a 75 mile run. That is if I keep a constant 14MPH and don’t stop or die in the process.

I totally forgot how much my BUTT hurts after riding for even a measly 1/2 hour! I definately need to get a pair of riding pants STAT!

I used to do a good 10 miles a day, back a good ten years ago. Alot of time has passed since then and I need to do alot more training to get back to doing that much. I’m sure it’ll get easier.

Of course, the training course I took “Apple Grinder” had alot of hills in it – ALOT OKAY? So, that slowed me down a bit, but I was encouraged that I finished the 7-mile ride 1:40 ahead of the pacer.
