June 2019 100+ Miles/kilometers Thread...Summer Is Here

Welcome to June a few hours early!

I'm going to try to get back on track this month after falling behind last month. Going to try for 750 miles in June. If I can can over-achieve by a little more than 100 extra miles it will be my most miles ever in a month. I do not like the heat, so we'll see how it goes.

Stay caffeinated, my friends!


-Matt

I'm keeping my minimum at 200 again, though I fully expect to exceed it. As of today I'm at 24 days in a row on the bike, which is not something I ever expected.

June 1 10.48

06/01 - 26.6 Miles I noticed the most amazing thing the last three days out: My saddle doesn't hurt me when I'm riding. I guess all you need is the right saddle and have it set to the right height and set the right amount from the bars and have the tires inflated to the right amount and have the right padded pants and have enough time in the saddle. Very different to be riding along not thinking about saddle issues.


June MTD 26.6 miles

June Goal - 400 miles which is less than the training plan but I have a vacation right in the middle of the month

Iím riding for a cause on Friday.

Yesterday I went on a 40 mile ride which was a big deal to me before and still is now but I keep thinking about Friday... Friday will be my first 100 miles in a day, but Iíll be riding for Autism. The ride goes from Manhattan to the Hamptons... actually it will total out to around 105. Kinda nervous, not sure if Iím ready since my max mileage has been 55ish miles with plenty of brewery breaks 😬 wish me luck!

06/01 - 4.96 - TERRIBLE!!! Another blow out getting really tired of it. Always the rear tire.
06/01 - 42.27 - Great BUT Windy ride. Goal for the day was 50 miles but got leg cramps at the 39 mile mark. Good thing I was only 3 miles from home. Also figured out the blow out issue. Tire Pressure. Switched to Gator skins a few weeks ago and had pinch flats 4 times out due to lower air pressure in the back. Will now be checking pressure before I go out to ensure rear is at least 110 PSI as it seems anything lower causes flats. This is a bumpy ride but I will have to adjust accordingly.


Monthly Goal - 300 - plan is to ride during the week on 5-10 mile routes as well on the fitness bike just to stay in tune. Overall speed and cadence is up tremendously since the start last August.
MTD - 47.23
YTD - 1092.4
