    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    The graphing points are my monthly mileages over 2006. Basically, I was giving a visual showing time in the saddle and just under 4000 miles last year.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Y'all have inspired me. Rode Saturday, break Sunday, trainer Monday and Tuesday, Rode in 32 degree weather on Wednesday (0 for you centigraders), and yesterday I felt like three-day old roadkill. I'm sure it gets better......

    Good choice, well supported double. There are some hills, but the last 60 miles is pretty much downhill or flat. I'm not doing the Davis Double this year, it falls on the same day as the Lung Ride (see link below). Usually if you get winds they will be at your back in the afternoon.
    Make mine a double!

    When you overtrain your body will tell you. My humble opinion is that cycling is the one sport where improvement comes ever so slowly so you tend not to notice. Do you do any group rides? I have found the one or two a week I can make are the best gauge of how I am progressing or regressing for that matter. I know how strong most of the riders are and have set my 2007 goals along those lines.

    Look into doing some cross training to supplement your riding. Weights, running, hiking, snowshoe you name it. If you ride thousands of miles at a fixed pace you will be able to ride thousands of miles at that pace.

    I live with 12-15 miles commute on days I do hard physical labor. On non-work weekdays I can cope with 20-30 miles every day at a touring pace and not feel it.
