Training Schedule for Seattle to Portland
Well, looks like I have a pretty aggressive schedule ahead to make it on Seattle to Portland this year. 😛
|Week||Mileage / Day (week)||Weekend Ride (1 day)|
|Apr 29-May 5||20||50|
|May 27-Jun 2||25||60|
8-9 miles of the daily rides is easy – all I have to do is ride my bike to the train station and back each day for work. It’s the longer rides on the weekend that are going to be problematic. It’s something I need to work out with Kristi (we have 2 kids under 5, and that can be a challenge), but probably that means getting up at 4am and riding then, so I can be done before 11am through mid-may, and done between noon and 2pm during that last 6 week period. I mean, there’s always going to be an option to bail, but I’d really rather not.
Although, to be honest, give me a pair of padded shorts and a tube of astroglide, and I can finish day one even as out of shape as I am. I just can’t do 2 century rides back to back right now – 100 miles would wipe me out for a week.
