Oh, @Pbase, how nice of you to think of me! I did manage the 55 miles, but there was no way at all that I was going to do 100. The morning was so nice! My husband rode with me to somewhat past the first stop, then I just soldiered on alone. I am so pleased with my TR training and all of the great podcast information. I don’t think I would have made it without it. And it turned out that I didn’t need to worry about riding in a group since I’m not fast enough to keep up with anyone yet. We’ll see whether TrainerRoad can really make me faster… I am super tired, but glad I did it.
I saw lots of Strava posts from friends who rode it that made me think of you. Glad it was a good day and you had fun. Just keep training. You’ll continue to get stronger!
