Month-to-month Mileage Problem Full – BionicOldGuy

I accomplished my month-to-month mileage problem on Strava yesterday. The goal was 600 km, and I completed with 1359 km (843 miles). Correcting for the driving that was performed on my e-bike (see “” Be aware on e-bikes and recording mileage” right here), which is about 20% of the whole, that is equal to about 1305 km unassisted (810 miles). This put me at 17,530 out of  280,312 who accomplished the problem, or 285 out of 17,533 in my 70-74 age group. It feels good to be within the prime 10%. To place issues in perspective, although, I rode lower than 1 / 4 of the whole put in by the chief (6,633 km), and even of the whole put in by the chief in my age group (5802 km). Nonetheless, it is a lifetime PR for me, I don’t assume I’ve ridden a lot over 600 miles in a month beforehand. With that problem over, I believe I’ll reduce on mileage a bit and give attention to getting a bit sooner on my cruising velocity.

The final 3 days of the week went like this. Friday I did a restoration cruise as a result of I had gone laborious final Thursday. Saturday was a brisker and longer journey of 29 miles, conserving my common coronary heart charge at 105. Yesterday was one other laborious day. After a warmup I tried a brand new time trial route I’d ridden on final Thursday. I did higher than Thursday, however solely by 7 seconds over 45 minutes! After that I did some intervals after which a cooldown journey. I’ll take it straightforward for the following couple of days to get well.
