I rode today with the usual Thursday club. We leave out of Winn Dixie on Morgan Road and ride anywhere from 17 to 25 miles. Today, I rode about 18 miles averaging right at 17 miles per hour. Not too shabby after riding 40 miles yesterday. I plan on riding a good bit on Saturday, although I haven’t determined how far just yet!

Met with a group I have never rode with before today and we rode right at 40 miles today at about a 15 mph average. It was a nice ride and a great group of guys to ride with. If I can get up again and make it over there on Saturday at 6am, I think I’ll ride with them again. That’s a big if! :)

My knee felt really good today, no problems at all. I’m icing it down right now just in case, because I’m ready to get the knee stronger so that I can ride more during the week. I would like to get my weekly mileage total to somewhere around 100-150 miles ridden per week. The two August rides are coming up soon and I want to be ready for both of them. It’s going to be really hard to do 2 100 mile rides on back to back weekends, so I’m going to see closer to time if I need to go shorter on one, or not ride one all together. Today’s the Fourth of July, I think I will go swimming with the boys and eat some bbq!Today’s the Fourth of July, I think I will go swimming with the boys and eat some bbq!Until next time….

We finally received some rain today, and it’s thundering right now, so hopefully it will rain some more tonight. I was still able to get about 6 miles in today. My knee acted up a little during the ride, but felt fine after the ride was over. I plan to start working out with weights to help strenghen the muscles in my leg and knee. I need to get into gear to get ready for my next attempt at a century ride, which is coming up in August. It’s the Hot 100 (http://www.druidcity.org) in Tuscaloosa. There are several different ride options, so I’m going to start out with 100 in mind, but know I can do less if needed. I’m ready to be off work Wednesday. Today was pretty rough at work, so a mid-week break sounds good about right now. I’m glad I was able to blow some steam off this afternoon with the ride.
