40K bike ride

I had never been on a 40K bike ride.

That is equivalent to 24.8 miles. In reading about triathlon training, I was trying to see about upping my training to be able to do Olympic distance. I think I could do it, if I had the time to train properly. So today, I did a little more than I usually do. I swam 16 laps (about half a mile), rode the nearly 25 miles and ran four miles. This is a little shy of the .93 mile swim, 24.8 bike ride and the 6.2 mile run. But I think with the proper training I could work up to it. Forget about the best weight loss pill! I just want to be able to train hard and one day enter a race of this distance!

That I'd like to see.
