Great achievement from my perspective! You are really getting in shape. Do you have a goal long ride in your future or just building into your everyday routine?
Western Shore (lower MI on Lake MI) for 6-day ride with LMB in early August and 6-day backpack of Isle Royale NP with Sierra Club in early Sept. After 4 months of increased intensity, this is the first time I really felt, "I can do this." Only 8 hikers and I don't know ages of the others, majority female. First day is 7 mile, 750 foot climb.
