I just completed my first century on Sunday. Avg. 16.1 mph. I felt pretty good, overall. A little foggy after and the next day. rode 3 miles to the gym today and noticed some fatigue. When I ran my first marathon a few years ago, I couldn't imagine running another one for quite a while.
With this, I feel that I could be ready to go in another month. Would like to do a double metric next. 30 mile race this saturday, plan on 50 miles the week after then watch the weather patterns for another good weekend day to hit it with the 120+ after a week or so of taper. too soon?
I think I can average 17 mph plus if the wind stays down.
