948 Miles to Go . . .
But, it is good to have goals for motivation. This goal was set with the sole intent of reducing my "anchor" potential on group rides. I can somewhat hold my own until I see the long hills. I am intimiated by them and due to lack of leg strength I typically feel like I want to a) give up b) barf or c) pass out when I reach the crest. A hills saving grace can be the subsequent downhill, assuming that the crest does not reveal another up.
Leg strength is what I need and time and ongoing strategy in my cross training will prevail. I hope. Lucky for me, tomorrow is a day of rest. Unfortunately for me, we have an appointment to have our taxes done. Wish me luck on both ventures.
