I set out to do a trial run for my spring commute 22.5 miles each way. I haven't tried it before because it's not a good route after dark, but I want to start when the days get longer so I thought I would try it today. I buggered up the rear wheel on the road bike so I took off on the Navigator. Made it over in decent time 13.6 mph for 23 miles on the Navigator aint bad but by the time I headed back the wind had picked up and unfortunately for me it was blowing the wrong way or I was going the wrong way whichever. 15 mph headwinds gusts to 25 mph made minor hills into mountains. I made it almost home and had to call my wife to come rescue me.
My question is what is the best thing I can do this year to continue to improve my fitness and lose weight. I picked up a few pounds over the holidays and I want to get serious about my weight and increasing my distances. I want to do a century this year
