I got 25 this morning, but I think I’m going to go get me a few more. While the weather is cooperating.

Edited: Rode another 26 miles this afternoon, and felt really strong for some reason. Power output was about 20% better than my last five or six rides. It seemed easier than normal to keep my heart rate up.

Hope you get your mojo back this week. The weather in the upper midwest seems to be warming up after a long cold and wet spring.

Commuted 4 miles on Friday.

50 mile road ride on Saturday then maybe another 2.5 miles round trip to shop for dinner and attend happy hour.

Assuming no drastic change in this coming weekend's forecast I will be taking a three-day tour somewhere.

May goal 200 miles:
5/7 - 16.6 miles
5/11 - 22.0 miles

Total: 38.6 miles.

The weather has not been cooperating and I'm leaving for a 4 day business trip in about an hour. May have to ride some of these miles indoors. (which I detest)

Great job everyone. I don't really keep track of mileage as much as I keep track of trying to ride a bit each day (at least that's the goal). Seems like it might be easier to keep track of all this on Strava?

Strava works well, I used it for quite a while, but I recently switched to MapMyRide and I like it better. The display is more customizable, and it'll take the heart rate from my apple watch, which Strava won't do. Even the paid Strava won't synch with the watch, while the free version of MapMyRide will. Really it all comes down to what metrics you want to track - I'm a bit of a metrics junkie .
