May #7100MilesIn2024 Progress

If you've been following along on this blog (or various social media outlets), you might have seen that I'm Training for Triple Bypass.

On July 13th, which is fast approaching, I am riding 108 miles with about 10,800 feet elevation gain.

Considering how many Century Rides I've done in the Denver area, 108 miles doesn't concern me at all.

10,800 feet climbing was a little bit of a concern because I had never done anything close to that in one day.

So, after my April #7100MilesIn2024 Progress post, I've been working on getting more long climbs in.

As a result, I've really made huge progress on my #7100MilesIn2024 goal, and even more progress on the #11EverestsIn2024 goal.

At this point, Strava says I'm about even on the 7100 miles and I'm well ahead on the 319,352 feet climbed.

In May alone, I logged over 805 miles and over 50,000 feet climbed. I'm sure that before the Triple Bypass, I'll continue to log considerable miles and elevation.

Of course, I also extended my #MetricCenturyEveryMonth streak with a couple of rides (including one from My House to Juniper Pass).

Since July of 2021, I've ridden at least one 100 km (62.2 miles) ride. This makes the streak 34 straight months.
