So we are entering the part of our training for the Ride to Conquer Cancer where the training hours are getting longer. With close to 1400 miles between Greenville, SC and Austin, TX the training is about hours on the bike, rest, and then repeat.
Snap Shot of the weeks to come in weekly riding hours:
Week 8 - 14hrs. (this week)
Week 7 – 13.5hrs.
Week 6 – 13hrs.
Week 5 – 17hrs.
Week 4 – 18hrs.
Week 3 – 19hrs.
Week 2 – 10.5hrs. (taper)
Week 1 – 3.5hrs. (two days rest prior to rolling out to Austin,TX)
Our Saturday/Sunday rides will consist of 5 to 6hrs., rest, and then repeat the next day. That is a ton of saddle time people! Thank goodness for butt rub!!!!
As much as I hate to cut out of the blog world I am struggling with fitting it all in. I will do my best to give one weekly update and follow as many of you as I can.
Being a part of this event has changed me is such positive ways. I can only imagine that once we rollout on Oct.18th it will get even better.
