April is fading into a distant memory. Time to review my New Year Resolutions:
1. Drive my truck to work less than 25% of the time. (GRADE = A+)
Year to Date:
Bike = 56
Bus = 17
Truck = 5
Truck driven to work only 6% of the time. I've started to drive that number back down. Kickin butt!
2. Complete a Triathlon. (GRADE = DNF)
April drove the nail in the triathlon ambitions coffin. I'm back into cycling full swing and have neither the time nor inclination to devote to running. I will keep swimming, because I like it, but it's time to drop this resolution. However, I can't get off scott free. There is a price to pay. In lieu of completing a triathlon, I am going to double the number of centuries that I planned to ride. Instead of riding 3 centuries, I'm gonna shoot for 6. 3 additional centuries is approximately 18 to 20 hours of riding. I've exchanged a 3 hour triathlon for 20 hours of centuries. I think I've gotten the short end of the stick. Oh well - I must be punished.
3. Ride at least 3 centuries. (GRADE = A)
My first century will be May 9 when I will participate in the CaptoCap ride from Williamsburg to Richmond and back to Williamsburg.
4. Start blogging and create a web site for "cyclingaffair.com". (GRADE = A)
The blogging again went very well in April. I published 9 posts during the month. I still have some work to do to get the quality of my blog site up to par and then I am ready to start exploring ways to increase its visibility.
