Last year I entered the MS25 for and with a friend, and trained during the spring to get ready for it. It was the first time I'd been on a bike in a number of years, and while I did manage to finish the tour, I was really feeling it, both right after the ride and the next morning.
This year I want to be able to just enjoy the ride and not spend the whole second half wondering if I'm going to make it!
So this is my challenge to myself: start using the cycling machines at the gym 2x a week (alternating with the treadmill another 2x) and build up to 25 miles by spring. Once it gets warm outside, I plan to build up to at least 30 miles, but hopefully 40, so when the ride comes around in May, 25 miles will seem like a walk (well, ride) in the park.
Question: any specific suggestions on how to build up to my goals? Is 2x a week enough? How many miles should I attempt to add a week?
Another question: Does anyone else have personal goals/events they're challenging themselves to meet (besides the 2007 annual goals that are already posted elsewhere)?
Just curious how you're working to meet them.
