I just completed 5500 miles for the year. I surpassed my record set in 2010 by more than 100 miles. My new goal is 6,000. This is not going to be an easy accomplishment. The days are getting shorter and the cold adds greater resistance. My body is having a tough time doing 50 miles, even 35 is a major workout. I will have to average 100 miles per week. Not a big deal in the warmer weather but Winter is very unpredictable. Just 1 snow storm stops things dead in it's tracks. Whatever happens it has been a great year. I promised myself I would not be as obsessive next year and just enjoy the ride.
