Final Ride and All Packed

Completed my last ride before leaving for Atlanta at 3am tomorrow.  At the risk of being embarrassed later, my legs feel great.

Today's ride was the end of a 55 week training plan starting in August 2011 with six weeks of pre-base just to get me in enough shape to start a training program.  I was in pretty poor shape after the bike accident.

In all I rode 8005 miles.  If I had known I was so close to 8,000 miles I would have ridden a little longer today just to make sure.  That is 667 hours of training of one form or another including yoga, lifting, and Pilates. 

I think I am fully recovered from the accident and am excited to get this ride underway.
