Well, it’s been five months in the making, but I reached my adjusted total distance goal of 2000 km by the end of September today at the corner of Sherman and Southeast Blvd. Looking back at the daily log I’ve been keeping since I started in May, I’ve increased my total riding distance by roughly 100 km a month.
I’ve really come a long ways since May when I only managed 170 km and two days worth of commuting required a day or two of recovery. Now I can put in a full week of commuting and still get in a long ride or two on the weekend without my body complaining too much.
September has been a really solid month for me. I did my first metric century ride back on my birthday and almost a third of my total riding distance was logged in September. There’s an outside chance that I can reach 700 km for the month depending on what I do in the next two days. 650 km is probably more realistic at this point though, especially since I still haven’t figured out where I want to ride tomorrow.
