I have only 14 more day till “ride the challenge event from New York city to Chicago”. Up to now I been training pretty hard, about 6 days a week and take one day off. I started about 2 months ago, my training wasn’t so great I was only doing 3 to 5 miles every other day. Then I decided to take it up to the next level. In the last 4 weeks i when from 3 to 5 miles per day to 20 to 30 miles per day.
