    Yea, I looked at last night and told my wife that she was hard core. To do 340 miles in January in Alaska and the last ride in 35 degree ice\rain, and then I think how I was a wimp to skip riding on Friday cause there was a light rain and it was only 64 degree. I was shamed, just shamed. . A tip o' the hat to the ArcticJill.

    It's OK, Adrien, it happens I have the DB up. I can post you in. Actually, between you me and everybody else, as long as you get the miles in to me before I publish, I can get it taken care of. Otherwise it'll just show up next week is all.

    Those two are inspiring me to ride more and longer. Did my first 45 mile ride yesterday. Finished at 1:30 am, left the house at 11 pm and rode until my knee was about to crumble. Paying for it today, but found a nice gear on the big ring that was working well for me last night and I just kept going. I'll get that metric before March 31st for sure now.

    Believe it or not, but I only rode 3 days this week and I focused on running and took two complete rest days (W,F). Monday we did a 70 mile ride with the clubs A- group (and some of the B's who I wound up bringing back in after they started dropping off after 40 miles). Yesterday I did a 59 mile ride. Today I did 64. However, the rides yesterday and today were regular "A" rides for our club so I was pretty much wiped out when I rolled into the driveway (basically had enough energy to fire up the laptop, report my miles, take a shower, then grab a nap).

    BTW, I think Jill's miles should count double or triple. 100 miles for her would be like 250 for me considering the conditions she's riding in as opposed to my enjoying nice Florida riding on the road. She's definitely the tough one; what she's doing is a hell of a lot harder than riding a nice 19-22mph pace on a road bike for 10 hours a week.

    You'll get there!

    BTW, am I reading this right? Are you doing all of your rides at night?

    yes you are. I typically leave between 9:45 and 11 pm as I am the official cook and dog washer of my family. My wife is a nurse and works 12 hr days and I don't get off until 6, so the last thing she wants to do is come home and cook. So I do all the cooking and home work checking ect. Once my dinner has digested fairly good and the kids and wife are tucked away for a good nights sleep, I head out and get in my rides. My battery drained on my Blackburn X3 last night and I was about 5 miles out and had to really think about the roads I needed to ride to get back to the house. I thought I was running on 70%, but was on High and it only lasted about 3 hrs.

    It's works out well as one of the area's I frequently ride through is a business park and there is less traffic and makes me feel a little safer. So, I have to deal with the cooler temps at night sometimes, but it's working for me. In fact I'm getting ready to go out about 9:45 tonight. Nice outside right now, only 67 as I type compared to the 48 that is was last night when I left.

    I get up around 7 and have to take my son to school at 8:30 and I don't like to ride in the early morning around here during the week anyway, weekends another subject. The roads are all heavily traveled and scary drivers. I have gotten used to it and it is actually very relaxing to ride at night. I'm a night person anyway.
