Assuming I can be back on my bike in March and stay healthy through November that would be 9 months at 333 miles/month. Definitely doable. I think 500 miles jogging will be harder for me, although I'm already doing 35 minutes 3 times/week now, going up to 37:30 tomorrow. I'm very slow right now, I don't think I've gone over 3 miles yet, but as my weight drops and the temps rise my distance will go up. This is probably the best shape I've ever been in in the month of January, even if I'm about 15 pounds heavier than I should be (I actually dropped below 200 this year for the first time since the 90s, I'm back at 215 now
