Hey everyone. I'm new to this forum, but would like to take part in the challenge. I'm thinking 275 miles for Dec should be good. Depending on the weather I may be able to get a whole lot more. All of my weekday rides are on a trainer so that really cuts the number down. Looking forward to seeing how it goes. how often do we update? Every day? Once a week?

12/13 Trainer MTD - 30.89
12/13 Road MTD - 33.26
12/13 Total MTD - 64.15

Sunday Update:

Unfortunately there is no update this week... I was unable to get out and add to a killer start for the month before everything iced over. On a better note, I'm picking up a stationary this afternoon so even if I can't get true saddle time, I can at least get some spin time and blow my 100 outta the water!

Question for everyone - How often do you update your progress? This is my first time on the thread. I just did "Angels" Sufferfest video combined with Trainer Road and it was absolutely unreal. I sweated my rear off. I've decided to not keep track of trainer miles vs. regular miles because they all run together and I can't keep them straight.

Here are my stats to date this month:
12/9 -- 97.98 mi./ 275 mi.

This is my first one of these threads in a long time, but I just update whenever I ride. Or when I need to lament that I couldn't. Welcome!

I see a lot of people that update daily. I try to stick to once a week. I figure that since I weigh Sunday mornings after any exercise and shower, but before work, that's a good day to update everything. It also gives me a reason to do nothing for a bit when I get to work

13.11 miles today, commuting. Long way in, way overdressed for the temp, sweating through the cold. Short way home perfectly comfy after making adjusments.

Same old, same old... I am more of a cold weather wimp than I used to be... Spin time isn't all that great either, stationary needs front bearings... oh well, maybe my goal can be to spin it into the ground...

So-----? That's only 2-3" over the pedals, and only at the very bottom of the stroke.
