This weekend marks the first of many weekends to come that I will begin the adventure of training leading up to the 1350 miles ( my part will be 400 or more miles)of riding that will take place for our Challenge to Conquer Cancer ride from Greenville, SC to Austin, TX in October. We had our first team meeting this past Sunday and I know now more than ever that this event is for me. What a great group of riders!!
I do feel as if I am ahead of many on the mileage front but my goal is to get faster, stronger, and just become a better overall cyclist. This event is not a race and I know this. It is all about the CAUSE. I will stick with the team plan of riding 4 days a week. My plan is to average anywhere from 160-200 miles per week. So let the fun, pain, and tons of saddle time begin. Nothing like a great team to train with and having a plan in place already makes me happy!
Monday – Weight training
Tuesday – 34 miles – will focus on pace and climbing
Wednesday – Weight Training
Thursday – 30-45 miles
Friday – OFF
Saturday – 70-90 miles
Sunday – 30 miles – recovery ride
Rinse and Repeat… and you have it.
At lunch I went and eyed some new bike candy with Scott. Put me in a clothing store and I freak but place me in a cycle shop and I love it. Carbon is the new black people... :)))
Have a great holiday weekend!!
