    I don't know, it just comes. I have gotten every at every 100 ride interval.

    I plan on doing Gran Fondo NJ in September. I've been spinning at home this winter using spinnervals videos. Did 30 cold miles this past weekend. Hopefully the weather will cooperate going forward so I can get out every weekend.

    Also, for any regulars (or newbies) who may be interested, April is "30 Days of Biking" month. Pledge to bike for 30 days, bike for 30 days, gain a sense of accomplishment for biking for 30 days straight and celebrate how awesome you are for riding a bike :) Started here in Minnesota, but people are pledging from all around the world.

    http://30daysofbiking.com/

    I probably won't get 30 days of biking in ... it is already starting to be wintery here and the useable daylight hours will be really short come early April when the time change happens. But I hope to get 30 days of movement ... walking, stairs or cycling. :)

    Thousands of miles later, this weekend I finally clipped in. Holy cow, it's amazing. I picked up a pair of giro mtb shoes clearance at REI last year but couldn't quite convince myself to try it out for fear of falling. Well, after tipping over several times this winter, I figured why not fall over some more? Took a spin around the neighborhood yesterday, didn't tip over. Took a spin around the south part of the city today, didn't tip over. Here's hoping I keep that upright streak alive!

    If you haven't already, adjust your pedals so they're holding your cleats loosely. So when you find yourself having to stop very suddenly, then panic when you realize your feet are stuck, it'll be much easier to get out before you fall over. I think that's how I've managed to not fall over yet. I also generally don't clip in while riding in city traffic.

    Yup, got my cleats pretty loose. So far, so good. Only one tip over :)

Biked to the gym, swam and then biked the long way home. Going to try to for a few bike/swim, bike/run workouts a week to prep for my first tri in August.

    Just got in a few more miles on both my Tuesday easy group ride (including a side trip to/from the dentist's office for my cleaning while the group had lunch), and a ride to/from today's Jays vs. Mets game. I should knock off my monthly target en route to/from tomorrow's Jays vs. Tigers game, but might get suckered into riding a Grand Fondo Century on Saturday with some of my tri team. Given I'm a bit above my target weight for my upcoming 70.3, a century might be in order, as I'll just need to get ride of my yankees vs. jays ticket for that day. Still, I'm falling behind on my running goal, and may need to save my legs for the 70 running miles I need to put in this week to hit that number.

    Definitely a slower month than I had wanted, but I'll blame it on the bruised tailbone and recovery, rather than I just got lazy :D It's really a bit of both. Hoping to get in another 100 miles, weather permitting.

    Got in my remaining monthly target miles on Friday to/from the Jays game, but ended up joining my tri team for a gran fondo 100 mile course ride today. Pulled domestique duty, as the race wasn't timed end to end, but had some time trial portions. Ended up pulling a bit too hard on the first one, but figured out how hard to push by the time we wrapped up the 4th time trial segment. Definitely enjoyed the experience, as I hadn't done a formal century with a team before.
