Every year our agency does a Col. Fitness Challenge. 6 categories to compete with and they give an award for the high performers in each category and overall too. It runs 10 weeks and its a good way to promote fitness and comradery in our agency.

This year I was more locked down because of Covid so I could really get out and ride a lot of miles. I am bragging because my goal was 1,000 miles and see if I can with this deal. Well I am proud to say I killed it!!!!

Just had to brag, highest mileage year ever this year!

So you did an avg. of 100 miles per week? Good for you!!! That's exactly what my goal has has been for the last 7 years or so. 100 miles per week, 5,000 miles per year (since I allow myself 2 weeks off). Some years I exceed it, some I fall short. Some weeks (like last week) I hit the goal in one ride, some weeks it takes 4-5 rides. Some years I'm skinnier, some I'm less skinny. But my goal is always the same.

normally I ride 4-5 days a week going for 75 miles. But for this 10 week deal my goal was 100 miles per week. I was just happy to get it! I am just about to 4K for 2020...been a good year on the bike for me.
