Of course I signed up for a one-day bike ride that covers 120 miles with 10,000 ft elevation gain. Because I really enjoyed that one 45 mile ride last summer. You know, the summer I started biking? Yes, this all makes perfect sense.
I also have a proven record of not sticking to a training routine. This sufferfest will be AWESOME. I’ll be so prepared. I won’t die. Nope. Not even a little.
The Triple Bypass ride has 3 summits between Evergreen and Avon. Read more about my ill-advised, not-for-a-novice ride: http://register.triplebypass.org/.
In a frantic moment I hired a bike coach to create a plan for me. I’m a little off track already but the training so far hasn’t been that bad. For those interested, I’ll post the training plan – which is essentially a couch to triple bypass framework – and I’ll give updates with my progress as I go.
I SO need a hug and reassuring pat on the back.
