Getting Better, but Not Ready to Hang Out with the Big Boys

I’ve now ridden my new recumbent to work for the third day in a row, and I intend to do it again tomorrow.  It’s a great bike, and it’s comfortable.

I had planned to attend a group ride tonight, to get to know more people and get some extra riding in.  However, that would bring my total riding for the day to over 60 miles.  I’m not ready for that.  I canceled my plans for the group ride.

I still want to attend some slower-paced group rides.  I’ll probably find some on the weekends, to avoid having to commute to work, and ride again.

I fully intend to ride to work again tomorrow.  That means I’ll have put about 150 miles on my bike in a week (commuting and other riding).  I’d like to get to commuting five days a week, plus a nice weekend ride.  That would get me about 200 miles per week.

It is kind of cool, that it is Thursday, and I haven’t even started my car since Monday.
