My training buddy David emailed me this: "Okay - just for fun and motivation pick a number between 60-100 and that's how many miles I will ride Thursday. I want to ride at least 60 and not more than 100."
So I looked online for a random number generator, and found this. I told it to generate one random number with the bounds of 60 and 100.
The number it gave me?
This is the kind of thing that statisticians get a chuckle out of.
Update: He did it! He even went further: 103 miles total, average speed 17.4 mph, on a day with over 57% humidity and swarms of bugs. Well done!!!
