Using Your Commute as Part of Training

As the weeks progress into the end of most peoples build phase of “race training” I am left to wonder what to do as I am crunched for time and simply hate riding the trainer.   I am left to look at my daily commute.   The weather is slowly getting better in Charlotte, NC (it was 70 today!) as well as the day light is getting longer.   Instead of pinching my commute to be as short as possible I am slowly looking at making it longer.   Taking the 20+ mile option into work and then by the end of January doing the same to get home.

Do any of the readers use their commute to get ready or stay in shape for racing.   What is your normal mileage?
