March 2021 100+ Miles/km Thread

I've been away for a few months, battling health issues, but my doctor says I'm good to go now, so to 'celebrate' my return, I'll kick-off the March thread.

Goal for March is a modest 100 miles, with some being trainer miles and the rest outdoor miles.

March 01 = 4.53 miles (trainer - approx 22 minutes)

MTD = 4.53 miles of (hopefully) 100 miles.



EDIT: Upon review, it's been six months. Didn't think it had been that long. No wonder my legs feel like Jell-O after just 4+ miles. LOL

Just came to start up the thread. Glad to see someone else was on the ball.

I got about 715 last March. I'd like to hit 750 this month.

total so far: 12.58

I'll probably regret getting back in so early since Ohio weather is garbage in March and April, but the weather looks decent next week and I should be able to squeak just under the 100mi mark by the end of the month. Definitely not in my normal 18-25mi routine ride mode yet...

So I had a horrible February, my goal was 500 miles and barely got to two hundred; lots of extreme windy days and on top of that the deep freeze that kept us inside for so many days. So, March tends to be windy in deep south Texas, most days they average 15 to 20 mph and it is not uncommon to have days where they go up to 23 or 25 mph. I will not ride if the wind is greater than 17 and even that is pushing it. My goal for the month will be lowered to 400 but with hopes that I can get some serious rides in and maybe hit 500.

March Goal: 400 Miles

03/03 15.36
03/04 15.20
03/05 25.34

MTD: 55.9

Good Luck to everyone!!
