    50 Miles for 2 Weeks--Man I suck!!!

    After posting 105 miles a couple weeks ago, I've really sucked since. Last week I think I was really tired from my century week and decided to take it easy and did 30.5 miles for the week. This week, I've been gone for 3 days for work and have only done 19.5. Luckily I still have the weekend to put some miles on the bike.

    I rode 13 miles tonight and boy was I winded pretty good. Gotta keep pressing on though!!!

    did just about 80 from Monday til today, all commuting. My legs are a bit fatigued overall, but I want to try and get in a couple miles over the weekend. As I have a couple errands to run, I might incorporate the riding into it.

    If cycling is your only form of exercise, then mileage per week may be a pretty good metric of how well you're doing, although you do have to factor in some recovery from a major event. OTOH, how fast you can bounce back from a century is a valuable metric too. The bottom line is that if you're really feeling fatigue, that would suggest that you're either overdoing the exercise, or underdoing something else. Only you know the answer.
