Charity Unicycle Ride Mileage Update

1000-Mile Project

Today I logged 3.6 miles at Best Friend Park, bringing my May total to 34.6 and my Year-to-date total to 299.2. While I’m happy to almost be breaking 300, I’ve fallen behind in my goal to reach 1000 miles by year’s end. With over 37% of the year gone, I’ve ridden less than 30% of my goal!

My minimum goal for this month was to ride 80 miles.  My “outrageous goal,” however, was to do 100, with one 40-mile ride in a day.  I can still do this, but it will take a lot of peddling to get there before May 26th when my niece comes from Germany and we’re all heading to Florida.  After that, unicycling is kind-of iffy for a week.

Hey, I got it: I’ll do 14 miles between now and next Saturday, then ride 40 on Saturday.  That will leave less than 12 miles to complete next week.  OK.  Check!

If (when) I complete my “outrageous” goal this month, I will only need to average 90.6 miles each month for the rest of the year.  Piece of cake, huh?  As time goes on, I’ll no doubt get stronger (barring injury), so I suspect I’ll complete my goal by November or early December.
