I will admit it. I am a little bit competitive. The funny thing is, I am probably more competitive with myself than I am with other people. Don’t get me wrong, I love a duel! I love to take someone or some people on in a challenge…. but I also push myself… to compete against… me.
So you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that this 5,000 mile thing has been eating at me. I figure I have six days left in 2006. So I am going to make the most of it. I rode 50miles on Christmas Eve morning. My family sent me off with a couple free hours as an early Christmas present. Today, I rode in the longerish way to work: 30 miles. Oh, did I mention it is pouring rain here in Seattle today. In fact the forecast calls for rain showers for most of the rest of the year.
With my 30 soaking wet mikes this morning, I am 80 miles away from 4,000 road miles. So of course, I have to go for it. I have to cross at least 4,000 miles. Now, if I give myself credit for 20 miles for every hour of spin class, then I’d be at 4,818 miles counting these spin class credits… and cycling another 182 miles in the next 6 days it totally doable… right!
So, what do you all think? Is it cheating to count those spin class miles? I mean, my legs were moving! Heck, considering how much effort I give in those classes, it’s definitely more of a workout then 1 hour on the road. Can I count them? What do you say?
