Toxic thumper

I'm Chris. I'm a new road cyclist. I work 55 hrs a week as a janitor and private housekeeper. I only have 1 day a week for a long ride. I use my kinetic trainer once a week. I would like to complete an 8 day 50 to 100 mile a day bike tour in sept. Am I in dreamland or is this possible given my current situation? My longest ride was 41 miles in traffic, up and down steep hills, it rained, hailed, and was extremely windy. I felt no soreness. Still...I think one day a week is a pipe dream

Welcome to Bike Forums. With 6 months to train, you should be able do that September ride. If you can't get out and ride, try to ride that trainer more.

As this is the Introductions forum, you'll likely not get many suggestions here. I suggest asking your questions in our Training and Nutrition forum. https://www.bikeforums.net/training-nutrition/

Oh thank you so much for reaching out and for the support! Does anyone know how to upload a photo? I don't see where it's possible in my profile editing.
