Well done Jason, what is impressive is that most of your k's are commuting ones!

I'm happy with how I'm tracking for the year, getting the distance done mixed in with training and racing.

easiest time for me to do them with family commitments. it's getting more difficult to stay 1000kms ahead of you though... :lol:

Am hoping that, if I ride and dont chicken out, I will click over ten thousand k's for the year on my morning commute tomorrow. I am going to click over 9000 commute k's this afternoon.

Never ridden so many k's in my life.

Halfway through the year and I'm ahead of my target, not going to up it as the next 6 months could mean less riding for me during the week depending on where/when/what I'll be doing employment wise I may have less time available for riding!
Recently left my job based in West End which was awesome to fit in my training before work.

Haven't been successful at convincing Mr MM that I could stay home permanently, :roll: !

Great that you are back on the bike... Build it up slowly - it takes time to get back to where you were!

built up to my first 300km week after being off the bike for 2 months. bad weather, other commitments, ongoing appts with the nurse to dress my wound and catching a cold have all limited my time on the bike. getting back in the swing though, now.

going to be a challenge to hit 15,000 km target, but i was well ahead before i had to take time off, so i'm still in with a shot.
