Fabulous Scott. Your goals are similar to mine and I'm so glad I found biking again.

You are inspiring me to set my goals higher. The way you are progressing, I'm too am sure your first century will happen.

I wanna ride a half century!! Although I'm not sure I've hit a limit as far as endurance goes for me. Did 30 miles last weekend and didn't feel destroyed like I hear from others here after a tough ride. I'm thinking about 35 today.

Good job Scott! we will look forward to that Metric Century report from you!

JCNeumann 10-01-12 05:42 PM

If you can do 35 miles you can do a Century. The key is nutrition and hydration - there's a million threads on it. It also helps a lot to do it in a group or with a buddy. Motivation is the third leg of the triangle!

Rock and roll!

Nice job! Set your goal high for next year.

Way to go Scott! Be sure to set your goals so that you are inspired to achieve them.

Great job Scott! I had the same 1000 miles goal (since July) and to do a metric century by November 1. I made both.

I'm thinking of goals for next season. Definitely a century or more than one, plus the equivalent of biking from New York City to LA or about 3200 miles from May 1 to Sept 30. It'd be about 125 miles a week.
