I'm going to change my posting format so I don't have to do math anymore.

Goal - 500
Rides so far - 3
Miles so far - 92
Feet climbed - 3,407

Good start to the month, had a couple of nice gravel rides in Fort Worth, going for the Tour de Italia (Texas) pre-ride tomorrow.

June Goal: 200 miles

June 2 - 16.8 miles - '97 Trek

June 4 - 24.0 miles - longest ride so far in 2019, felt great today on the '11 Fuji

It has been wet and rainy here, but watching the weather radar I caught enough of a window to get in almost 8 miles before the next downpour. I am determined to ride!

Twice in last week with a GPS malfunction. Each time adding four miles or so which I have corrected where I caught the rascal. It's a Garmin Oregon 450 I bought for hiking years ago but which has been faithfully recording time and distance for the last three years. Until now.

06/01 - 4.96 - TERRIBLE!!! Another blow out getting really tired of it. Always the rear tire.
06/02 - 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.
06/06 - 2.74 - ride was more like 7-10 miles BUT my Wahoo Bolt went dead
06/09 - 25.57 - good ride only 1:35 - I have to make time to ride more


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.

The rain this weekend in East TN really put a dent in my plans. That said, I was able to get out for a great ride this morning. I'm going to have to play catch up, however...

Goal: 150 miles

06/12 - 16.1 - first time riding before 5:30 am. I guess you could call it "fasting" cycling. Did not eat before but felt GREAT before, during and after the ride. Rain potential shortened the pre-work ride.

Ugh, I have been really been sloughing off the past year and a half. Made some positive lifestyle changes after some serious backsliding. Need to get my mojo back!

June Goal - 150 Miles

6/6 - 31.1 - gravel
6/8 - 3.0 - around town on gravel alleys and a few hills
6/14 - 19.7 - shorter gravel ride and a spin through town

MTD - 53.8
