Hit my magic mileage this week.

Being that I got off to a slow start because of an above average snowy winter and losing my drive to cycle indoors by late January. I didn't have the base miles that I like going into the year as in past years. I was able to start racking up the miles the last two months and this week I went over 3000 miles. Not a big mileage total but for me it seems like once I get that mileage in my legs they really start feeling stronger. They are really in the mood to play on all the hills in the region, and ready to hit it on the flats. Now I'm really looking forward to do my annual cut the state in half x2 in August.

Congrats and well done. It does make one feel good and have a sense of accomplishment as the miles accumulate.
