I signed up for the STP just before they sold out. I'm still not sure I'll do it, but I registered just in case, knowing there would be 100 people who would gladly pay for my registration should I back out.
Here's my hesitation on the STP: I'm reading all this stuff about how I should be conditioning myself for the ride. I should be doing centuries, back to back 50+ mile days, group rides, paceline training etc. etc. etc.
I don't have time for ANY of that! Basically, I do the 30 mile R/T commute to work a few days a week, that's it. Been doing it for a couple months now and my old body seems to be handling this whole biking thing pretty well so far.
So ... am I stupid to take on the 2-day STP based on no further conditioning than the commute? Are back to back 100 mile days going to kill me? Or if I keep my pace reasonable, stop and rest often, will I have no trouble with this ride? Wadayasay?
