I'm back to cycling after a month off from a rib and leg injury. I'm pushing about 7 miles a morning now and tossing a mile-2 of walking/jogging slowly into it. Once school starts back up and the kids are gone I'm shooting for 30 on bike and 5 on foot.
My first event is 100 miles and I'm scared to be honest. It's 160 miles from home, I'll be driving then camping the night before. But for the 100 miles, what do I need to prepare for? I've got 2 months until it's time, so time to condition a bit more.
I'm currently doing morning stretches but no other working out. I do have a ymca pass, and our ymca is one of the better ones.
So what should I focus on? My heart rate is great, my lungs feel great, legs are getting stronger fast. I need a checklist though. I don't want to get there and get 40-50 miles in and have to be taxi'd back, lol. Help me out!
