2 personal bests in one weekend

yesterday 26mi @ 16mph avg.

Today 40 (this map says 35 but it's sloppy and I actually added a couple of accidental miles) at 15mph avg

The lower gears on the old pug are a bit cranky especially shifting down into them, up seems ok.

Here's hoping for a 50 before the end of the season.

If you did 40 today, then 50 should be a breeze soon.

Thanks, felt good though I must admit to being ravenous at lunch afterward...I'll definately be picking up a trainer for the winter and a new bike this spring. I'll keep the pug but it seems to get cranky on the longer rides and I'd like to clear a century next summer.

Reading what others are posting about aching legs etc. I get the feeling I'm ready for longer rides. My technique is for crap but my cardio is pretty good. I did a total of 66mi over the weekend and I feel fine, no leg pain, a touch of back stiffness but nothing major. The thing holding me back? Well it's two things...first by mi. 30 my taint was starting to hurt (though it didn't take long after I was done for it to feel fine) and I worry about taking my bike out too far and having it breakdown... I really think I'll be in the market for a new road bike by spring.
