A lady friend.
Several months ago I set a goal for myself to obtain 100 extra miles of biking. This week I cracked 100+ miles. As of now I have rode my bike 146 miles in conjunction with my commute.
I commute to work on my bike daily. My combined miles in a week commuting is 40. I probably ride another 40 in recreation. I wanted to exclude my commute to the total goal because that is a given.
How I got there:
I ride 16 miles in exactly an hour (including traffic lights and stop signs and slow downs)
Sunday I rode 58
Monday I relaxed
Tuesday I rode 12
Wednesday I rode 32
Friday I rode 12
Saturday I rode 32*
* I have more to ride.
I am not a goal driven person but something inside me realized this is possible and I wanted to accomplish my own feats of strength.
“The traditional importance of the mathematical problem of the quadrature of the circle; it contains the secret of the transformation of heavenly into earthly form. The hearth in the home, the altar in the temple, is the hub of the wheel of the earth, the womb of the Universal Mother whose fire is the fire of life. And the opening at the top of the lodge --or the crown, pinnacle, or lantern, of the dome--is the hub or midpoint of the sky; the sun door, through which souls pass back from time on eternity, like the savor of the offerings burned in the fire of life, and lifted on the axis of ascending smoke from the hub of the earthly to that of the celestial wheel”
-- Coomaraswamy, "Symbolism of the Dome"
