I can’t tell you the last time I rode 100 miles in one week. If I guessed I’d say 20 years (ouch), but no matter how long it has been way too long. This week I clipped off 127 miles and it felt great.
I have been running a ton the first part of the year and my achilles just hasn’t felt right of late. I believe it is due to the shoes, so I have new Brooks on the way (I shouldn’t have switched away). I decided this week to ramp up my miles on the bike. I have been averaging about 50-60 miles per week on the road since the weather got nice. This week I went 20+ per day with one day off for rest (actually travel, but we’ll go with rest).
My plan has always been to split time running and riding, but my shoe dilemma along with an aching achilles pushed me more towards the bike this week.
I’m going to try to keep up 100 miles on the bike per week and focus on 10-15 on the feet, once my new shoes arrive and I can prove my theory that the shoes do really matter.
Decide to dominate!
