If I overlooked a thread that's been started already just ignore me..
I like the idea of having a place to throw some daily updates without starting a new thread all the time. I know a few of the other sub forums have a "post your ride" thread but I feel a little out of place in those since I'm new to riding and slightly out of shape!
My first ride was Saturday and 2.8 miles, I thought I was going to pass out when I got home! After that everything has gone really good. Since then every night after my ride I've felt better and better. I keep telling my wife after each ride that I've got more left in the tank. So every night I've increased my distance little by little.
Last night after 4 trips out I planned on a 5 mile. I felt pretty good on my last leg in to the house so I looked at my trip and was sitting at 4.8 miles. I figured I'd make sure to hit 5 and took a loop around a different neighborhood when I got home I looked down and was surprised to see 6.5 miles. I still felt fresh and if it wasn't getting dark I probably would have stayed out longer.
I had hoped to just put miles on the bike this week with the goal of hitting the 10 mile mark this weekend but after last night I think I'll be there sooner. So for tonight's ride I'm debating on either riding the same 6.5m loop but pushing it a little harder or stretching it out to a 10m loop. Thoughts?
It's official though, I'm addicted!!
So how was your ride? Those of us that are new or still trying to better your times/distance what are your goals for the next few days?
