The century ride is in two weeks. Today I rode 80 miles on a mostly flat (as flat as you're going to get in this part of Texas) course, and felt strong enough to continue when I was finished. I continue to be surprised by my progress. My improvement over the last 5 weeks of training is astounding. 5 weeks ago I rode 50 miles at an average speed of a little under 16 MPH, and was very tired afterwards. Today I averaged over 18 MPH, and then finished mowing the lawn. The training program works!
