35.83 miles - first ride home from work of the year!

Did 35.83 miles yesterday - great ride for the most part. I did manage to get a bit lost, which was funny, but not too bad. Of course it slowed me down. I averaged 16.5 mph, although my bike computer was usually reading between 19-21 mph. That increase in speed is due to a couple of changes that I've made to my bike. I shortened my stem to take some of the pressure off of my elbows (they would REALLY hurt when I rode) and got some new wheels. They feel much faster and are whisper quiet - no more popping noises while I'm riding, which is nice.

And I think the bearings are quite a bit better.

All in all, a good day.

This brings me to a grand total of 210.34 miles down, 2289.66 to go, and 91.59% remaining. 40 more miles until I hit 10% done. Whoo!

30.59 miles

Today was a total grind of 30 miles. It was supposed to be windy, rainy and snowy. But it was and just kept staying partially sunny. So I went for it, and managed to get in 30 miles, most of that dry. Except for about 10 minutes, where it rained, then hailed, then snowed, then rained again, then rained sideways, then stopped.

Moved pretty well, but my heart rate monitor was being fritzy. That was a big pain, I think I need new batteries.
