#bikestreak

I decided to create a little challenge for myself:
#bikestreak

It's not a crazy challenge, just a fun little way to rack up some miles and spend some quality time with Le Tigre! (aka The Tiger--my bike for those not in the know) or I may have to resort to the stat bike or spin bikes at the gym.
I'm gonna be flexible with this one.
Starting on April 15th I will bike each and every day.
The minimum I must bike is one mile-easy enough right?

#bikestreak
will end on May 15th

I'm going to make this really fun for YOU>
Take a guess on how many bike miles I log during #bikestreak and the person closest to the actual mileage will win a prize!!

when #bikestreak is done, then I will be moving onto
(yup, you guessed it)

#runstreak
this will have the same set of rules-I must run every single day and the minimum must be one mile. The #runstreak will finish on June 15th

heck...while I am on a streak, why not celebrate the start of summer with
#swimstreak? Not sure what the minimum will be on this one.
Yup, #swimstreak will run June 15th until July 15th.


Who's with me??

I am a biker, and I love a challenge, but I am asking for a bend in the rules, I will commit to 30 rides (outdoor or trainer, yep I am one of the "trainer loving freaks") for at least 30 minutes each ride. I have a half mary on the 17th and I will be out on day 2, so can I have my exception rule? I promise to make good on it.

I'll guess 234!

Way to commit Jen!!! 1 month of biking.... I'd guess about 350 miles, knowing what a bad ass you are :)

Beth said...

I'm new to blogging and can't wait to read about your running streak. I started one at the beginning of this year - just finished Day 104 and still going strong!

You are a bit hard core...and motivated. You will have approximately 434 miles I think. For swimming, I would say a 400 or 500 for the minimum...figure how long does it take to run a mile or bike a mile, 5-9 minutes give or take, right? So using that time, 400-500 swim would be right in line. Although honestly, just taking the time getting ready and showering after - you might as well do more!:)

This sounds like fun. I wish our weather cooperate so I could ride outside more often.

My guess is 275.

Good luck and have fun!
