This is only my 4th blogpost this year so far, not really a big deal either way, but compared to last year, I find I have not as much free time. I'm definitely WAY more active in 2013 then 2012. I've got a couple big things on the horizon this year:
Big Ride Week in late April for Man Camp 2013 in NC.
Half Marathon in June
Tough Mudder in October.
So I've been pushing myself to get out and be more active. And it hasn't been hard in many ways, but it also hasn't always been fun. Doing those 11 miles on Monday sucked. Last night my legs were not at power either, till near the end. Though with my schedule this week, it's no wonder I'm a bit down, I'm at 43 hours as of right now and by the end of Saturday I should hit 60 hours. Getting up at 3:35 the last 3 days has been hell.
February 2013 I hit 16 activities for 222 miles, up from 13 and 155 miles in January. Versus last year I had 16 activities for 176 miles in January and Febuary vs 29 for 374. I'd like to hit 250 in March but it may be hard with going home for a week. Though I now have my old beater Giant down there. I will get SOME riding in.
Tommorow brings me lots of options - Sleep in and eat a big ole breakfast, get up early and go ride the Shjed/Gambril loop from Sand Flats, or go do some trailwork at Meadowood with Doug V.
New MORE Event for April 4 (Thursday). We are doing screening/fundraiser at Arlington Draft House for Reveal the Path. Mike Dion's film from 2012 following some great riders in some amazing locations. I've already purchased my tickets (1 for me, and 1 for someone else).
Still thinking about a BIG mtb trip this summer in June/July.
