Aiming for a 5k mileage year

February 20, 2013

I’ve decided upon a mileage goal for 2013.  I intend to ride 5,000+ miles this year.  Goals are a very individual thing, and this one will seem modest to some readers of my blog – but for me it would be a huge advance.

Put in perspective – this means an average monthly total of 400+ miles…while last year, I only passed 400 miles in a month probably three times.

Compound that with the fact that we’re already almost two months into the year.  I don’t have an exact idea of my current mileage but it’s probably ~300 miles – which means I’ll need to average ~450 miles per month for the rest of the year.

For me, this 5k miles would be significantly more than I did in 2012…roughly 50% more, in fact.  An ambitious goal.  Let’s go get it!!
