1.73%
 
According to the on-line training site that I have been using, it computes that the amount of time in my life spent riding my bike is just 1.73%. If it is just 1.73%, then why do I think cycling is virtually the largest chunk of my life? I mean where is the other 98.27% (apart from sleeping, eating, etc). How does 1.73% make the difference it does in terms of my health, quality of life and well-being? I actually thought that I did lots of riding.

Weird isn't it? :)

Can you give us a link? I'd like to see that % of time I spend training, too. Could make for some interesting arguments with my fried chicken eating co-workers.

Would sleep be enjoyable if never to awake?
Would awake be enjoyable it never to sleep?
Would food be enjoyable if eating was continual without pause?

Enjoy that 2%, comparing it to the other 98% just makes it that much better.

Although quantity (amount of time on the bike) of training or cycling in general is important, the quality (perceived enjoyment and benefit) is probably more important to us psychologically. So it seems as though we'd spent more time than is actually the case.

My year-round average of 45 min/day of walking/jogging/cycling works out to 3 percent of my life or 4 percent of my waking hours.

Ya, but I spend lots of time thinking about cycling!

Does that count?

:confused:
