It is all about making progress for me. Last month was my first month of riding 400+ miles. I am closing in on my second 400+ mile month and looking at my bike journal enteries my avg mph has improved as well this month over last. Saturday will be my first 50 miler. 40 has been my best up until now and I have only done that a couple of times. The 50 miler will be part of the annual Big Dam Bridge 100. I could have chosen the metric century, but since I really only have a couple of months of training behind me I am happy to do the 50 first. I hope this trend of progress continues and am anxious to see this time next year if I am sharing with you that I am riding in the Century. Now if I can just get my eating habits back on track.
