ride mileage question
I'm trying to line up my training rides for the MS150 from Houston to Austin, but I have a mileage question.
I've already signed up for a 104 mile ride the weekend before the MS. I'm planning on doing the entire route, but will play it by ear as I want to make sure I recover before the MS.
Anyways, there are rides 3 weekends in a row, and I was going to do 40 miles, 70 miles and 70 miles to build up to the 104 mile ride. My longest has been 63, so getting to 70 isn't a problem, I'm just wondering if doing 70 mile rides two weekends in a row is a good idea.
Any advice is much appreciated.
