Hi all, I have been MIA for quite a while! Unfortunately a motorbike accident put me out of action for quite some time last Aug. My foot is still not quite right, but started to get back into it last month with 453km (281 miles), so this month I'm going to aim for 750km (466 miles)

MTD 78.8km (49 miles)


Glad to be back!

My goal is 750km. It's going to be tricky, since it's now track-day season, and that'll eat weekends and I've a week for work in NorCal. I didn't exactly cover myself in glory with my first ride of the year, either.

it's pretty close......if I get into a open spot for the BWR challenge

thinking out loud.....
600 miles
35,000 ft vertical
15 miles running
2 centuries
1 double metric

trying to plan my ride for today after work and thinking of how much time I really want to spend using my lights after the sun goes down or what area I will be when I do have to use them is more important.

Slayed me son.

Not allowed to ride a bike till mid May. Makes me madder than a 3 legged dog trying to bury a turd on an icy lake.

Got a run I signed up for on Sunday. We will see if I can do a "couch to <not saying just yet but it's NOT a marathon> in two weeks" deal.
I was inspired by the book Couch to 5K in 9 weeks training plan.

it's part of my 100 step program, trying not to have any run longer then 5k this month. As much as I want to do longer lunch runs, I need to ease back into it so that ligament doesn't go haywire on me again.

Thank you! I did get in 3 miles the other day, but that technically wasn't in April! lol I think I may have to just do some rides in the evening when my hubby gets home, because I would like to go faster than my daughter on occasion!

Didn't know you had a haywire ligament. Easy on it.

That's a tough one to ride through. That's all ice. Looks like I'll be riding just 11 miles total when I go to the trail for quite some time, LOL. I was hoping to do more then last year's 12 miles in an hour daily with the new bike.
oh my god that is fantastic!! hope people don't mind me quoting this photo it's superb - inspirational! is that Pennsylvania?
