Last night, I went for my first ride in weeks that was longer than a mile or two. The night was dark, cold, and windy. It occured to me that I really had no idea how far I was riding, and how would I put this ride down on my tracking spreadsheet? I then wondered why I needed to track the distance at all.
I rode 1745 miles in 2007, and I just passed 2000 for this year. I really have nothing to prove to myself at this point, and I think I'll stop tracking miles when the year is over. I get the same workout whether or not I know the numbers.
Has anyone else gone from tracking to not, or the other way around? What were your reasons?
