First Century of 2011

July 24, 2011 10:26 am

In the past few years I would have already completed a few double centuries by mid July.  But this year I have just not had the interest to ride so far and until today I had not even ridden over 100 miles in a single ride.  You can see from this chart that my riding is lower than the past 4 years and I have to go back to 2006 when it was less.

However since I finally was allowed by the Cardiologist to stop taking the beta blocker, I seem to have more stamina to ride long.  John and I signed up for the Ulcer Century on August 6th so I have been trying to get in some longer rides.  On the past two Saturday’s Anne and I have taken the tandem and joined the Utah Vello ride up Hobble Creek.  We end up with 55 miles for that ride.  Both times I jumped on single bike after the ride to get in more miles.  Today I joined a couple guys from the Utah Velo ride up the Alpine Loop, then South Fork, to get 100 miles for the day.  Since I climbed 6,000 feet for the day, 3 times more than the Ulcer Century will be, I figure I am ready for it.
