I must say that having commute km as less than 20% of my total keeps life relatively interesting. I would hate to have to use commuting km to build a total, rather boring way to do it I'd say. Mind you, that's not to say I don't use a bike instead of a car for every possible reason.
My take is everyone's situation is different and whether the K's are classified as "commute" or "Training" they still count towards overall fitness. 2/3 rds of my k's are commute and I reckon I am a lot fitter, and more road aware "weekend" roadie for it. Oh and my normal commute is 80ks round trip .
