Three years ago I wrote about not being a completist and about blogger Cate and accountant/duathlete Cathy who are. See Are you a completist? If so, you’ll wonder why Sam didn’t go for a short Sunday night bike ride!
Yes, this Sunday night, just home from the farm and a long drive from Prince Edward County, here I am just getting off my bike having ridden an oddball number of kilometres on the trainer. Why, you ask? It’s a reasonable question.
Again, weekly distance goals on Zwift that were almost, but not quite, met. My goal is to ride 100 km a week on Zwift. This week, I had done almost that (94 km or so) plus 50 km in Prince Edward County, the last of my summer charity rides, Pedal for Parkinson’s. But those were outdoor kms and they don’t count on Zwift.
You can sponsor me here by the way. I’m still a few hundred dollars away from my goal.
But likely the weekly Zwift distance goal wouldn’t have gotten me back on the bike.
However, tomorrow is also my birthday and I have a tradition of riding my age in kilometres on the weekend nearest my birthday. I’d ridden 50 but I am turning 56.
Back on the bike!
I chose to ride in virtual France. I kept going after 6 km had passed, just because. It’s very pretty virtual scenery.
Now I can call it a week. I’ve ridden more than 100 km on Zwift and my age in kilometres.
