1,000 Mile August!


August 2015

I need a nap.  I had to take the tank again yesterday so I had to leave one of my water bottles at home to fit my tools – long story.  In any event, 51-1/4 miles in 2h:44m. Other than the roads being wet, it was a perfect morning for a bike ride.


So, originally I was going to take this afternoon off, you know, to “taper”, but I decided against that to keep my legs spun up… And because a ride this afternoon will mean a perfect 31 for 31 day month, averaging more than 50 km a day (33 miles) – 1,037 miles total, without missing a minute of work or shirking my any of my responsibilities.

Besides, it really was a taper week anyway:

You’ll see what I mean by that next Monday…  Chuckle.

      Thank you, you’ve got that right, about fitting it in… I’ve got retired friends who can fit that kind of mileage in all summer long but having a full time job and two young daughters, it’s a little tough. Fortunately my wife and I have an understanding about August.

    Wow, that is amazing. 31 days is a row is amazing also. Very difficult to do.

    Well done. That’s a lot. I’m happy if I average 1,000 km/month and I don’t have the time pressures you have.
