Short month but the goal of 250 miles remains the same and can increase as necessary.

2/3 - 16.73
2/4 - 21.10
2/6 - 23.55
2/10 - 10.89 - COMPLETED ZWIFT GRAN FONDO TRAINING
2/10 - 20.01 - started FTP builder
2/11 - 19.05
2/13 - 20.05
2/16 - 17.85
2/17 - 23.14
2/18 - 16.87 - first ZWIFT race. Finished 36/40 in the D cat. Have a lot to learn about shifting BUT the most notable thing is i learned it is time for shoes and pedals. Been scared of this as I will now be connected to the bike. What better time to learn than on a trainer.


MTD - 188.24

All you with your large numbers... I however started small. I set a goal of 100 miles. With all the snow, they are all indoor miles, but my goal was reached tonight. Not bad for a fat guy with COPD, that hasn't ridden consistent in years.
2/01 6.5
2/02 8.42
2/04 11.08
2/07 3.44
2/09 10.83
2/12 9.76
2/13 8.77 (my 49th b-day)
2/15 13.97
2/16 3.23
2/17 6.5
2/18 10.5
2/19 7.0

Seems like you're doing pretty well to me. Looks like you've met your monthly goal and have well over a week to spare.

Well done!

It's amazing how quickly the body gets used to what you're doing and is ready to step it up.

Short month but the goal of 250 miles remains the same and can increase as necessary.

2/3 - 16.73
2/4 - 21.10
2/6 - 23.55
2/10 - 10.89 - COMPLETED ZWIFT GRAN FONDO TRAINING
2/10 - 20.01 - started FTP builder
2/11 - 19.05
2/13 - 20.05
2/16 - 17.85
2/17 - 23.14
2/18 - 16.87 - first ZWIFT race. Finished 36/40 in the D cat. Have a lot to learn about shifting BUT the most notable thing is i learned it is time for shoes and pedals. Been scared of this as I will now be connected to the bike. What better time to learn than on a trainer.
2/23 - 20.83 - Officially clipped in!!!! WOW what a difference in the power, stroke and technique. I went 870+ miles without clipping in. Think a trainer is the best time to learn to ride clipped in and hopefully it will prevent injury or falls in the spring.
2/24 - 30.10
2.26 - 21.17 - GOAL ACCOMPLISHED!!! Did not think i would get there this time but I did it, back to back months of 250+ miles!! Great way to start the year BUT closing out the month with my second CAT D race on ZWIFT
