A most enjoyable night ride on the Creo tonight. I was absolutely worn out but wanted to get a short ride in. Cranked it up to full power. After about 5 miles I was really having a blast. Itís amazing what almost doubling your FTP will do to the fun factor!

Today when I hit mile 11 my legs began to tell me to stop. I pushed on for a bit but I remembered what the doc told me; "listen to your body" and so I decided to stop my ride as my legs continued to feel stressed even though I hadn't reached my daily goal. Gonna call the doctor later today (it is also a blessing to me that my surgeon turned out to be an avid cyclist) just to be sure, but my legs, especially my right leg where I had the surgery is feeling extremely sore. Hadn't had a single issue until today.
Yep, listen to your body! Keep us posted and be careful.

Feeling better today, spoke with doc yesterday told me I need to remember I am 64 years old and that my recovery has been amazing. Told me to cut back to 10 miles, push on if I felt good but not to exceed 15 miles a day until October, also asked me if I was trying to improve speed, I said yes and was pushing as I have had trouble hitting 13 mph; he told me to not worry about speed for now because i was probably over compensating one leg, or I could be rocking my body from side to side, and all of that would affect my recovery. Hit 15 miles today, felt like doing more but I decided to listen to my doc. After all, we are almost halfway done with September. Barring bad weather days, I still feel I can meet my 400 mile goal.

Nice effort today. Travel coming up, will have to step it up in part two of Sept if I’m gonna get 700.

Weight at the gym this evening was 200.0 (or 200.00 for Robalero). Still sticking around, I like it here.

Long day and car ride back from Phila today. I managed to get in some decent miles in the coolest temperature I’ve encountered all year. Fall has arrived in the mountains. We are hazed in by the Calif. wildfires even here in the BlueRidge!

Been sick for a week, finally back in the saddle today. Still weak, but it felt really good to ride, even for a short distance. September goal is in major jeopardy.

September to date: 100.7 miles

2020 to date: 1967.2 miles

2020 goal: 2100 miles

All my miles are outdoor miles.
