Three weeks and still going strong

The third week of training for Project Biwa went just as well as the previous two. I was particularly pleased with Saturday's ride. We were planning on doing 50 kilometres, and managed to cover 51.2 in less than three hours. We are still short of the stamina required to cover 100 kilometres in a day, but after three weeks of training, it was an important milestone.

Another two 50k rides are scheduled over the coming two weeks, with the next big step in early May, with 80 kilometres.

The distances planned for the first three weeks were 40, 100 and 148 kilometres. The distances actually covered were 32, 117 and 151 kilometres.
Here is the summary for weeks 2 and 3.

The fundraising is also going great. At the time of writing this post, $525 have already been donated to Global Giving's Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Thank you all for your support!

Looking at the stats for this website, I also noticed that some people arrived on the Project Biwa pages from a link posted in the news section of the Vivre le Japon website [Fr]. Many thanks to them for spreading the word.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments below or by email.
