Bike camp by the numbers
August 9, 2012 § 9 Comments
1,207 – miles I rode. (Julie guessed it!!) If my ride was indoors I used 16 mph as my conversion.
30 – days of bike camp (July 9-August 8)
20 – number of hours I spent in the saddle in each of the last 2 weeks
4.5 – number of hours of riding I could squeeze in a day while still working from 9 – 6
2 – hours of my longest run off the bike
3- number of live “wild” animals I saw while riding…..2 deer and a raccoon. (National Geographic should be calling me any day for a story, I know it.)
115 – length in miles of my longest ride.
5 – number of times “hey can I ride wit you” was yelled at me while riding through West Baltimore.
7 – minutes faster I am riding my 2 hour loop since the beginning of camp
4 – seconds faster I am running my 400’s since bike camp happened.
As you can see there has been a lot of quality chamois time going on here! This was definitely one of the more challenging training blocks I’ve experienced, but I have no doubt the mental and physical gains are worth it. Goodbye (for now) bike camp!
