OK, It was recently stated in another thread that (generally) if you are fit enough to do a century then you can do 500. It is just mental and nutrition. I can pick up and do a century anytime, typically I'll do one a month. This month, 4. I have a good base. I practice eating and recovering from hard efforts on the bike - keep moving...
My short term goal is to finish a 200K. Eventually (next fall?), I'd like to be an official finisher of the Furnace Creek 508 and possiblly keep my mileage up to qualify (via the local brevet series) for the next PBP.
You're sayin' that from here on out it is mostly MENTAL????
