Took the knee for a test drive today after I adjust my seat post and seat a little. Test was good and no knee pain. Did 30 today in some heavy west winds which sucked eggs, but it was at my back on the way back.

Beautiful day at the rail trail today.

Temperature 67℉ (cold) @ 12:55AM start today with leg warmers + jacket + gloves on and cooled down a couple more degrees by the time I was done at 30 miles.

I rode an hour and 20 in my office and got exactly nowhere. Zero miles. What a waste of effort.

Was out early on Wednesday morning and rode 47 kilometers. Weather was very humid due to yesterday's late afternoon thunderstorm.

So I went out this morning, notice some clouds building but no rain is expected. Wind is really picking up, becoming really annoying. I stop about 25 miles in, and decide to check the radar on my phone and what do I see to the west of me, but lots of heavy storms and rain coming my way. Luckily, I was doing loops near my house, so did not take that long to get home. So I decided to ride the trainer and some climbing in Italy for a change of pace. The wind killed my legs, that is for sure.

I had 33 miles and lots of wind outside, and 27 miles and 1800 ft of dry climbing inside while it is pouring outside.

Only rode 37 kilometers Thursday morning but it was a lot nicer. Temperature at 6:30am was 74F but 93% humidity as usual. Had a bit of wind out of the NE as they predict the temps to drop a bit over the coming days.

Took a ride at the rail trail today, seems they did not get the blower truck out there after the storms that came through the other day, there was tree debris everywhere, which really sucked. Hard to see tree limbs under leaves and pine needles, so I did 30 miles and called it a day

Today I was out riding my bike with my friend Rick and as we rounded a corner I was right behind Rick. We were only going about 15 mph. Rick must have scared a water monitor lizard as it darted out across the path right behind Rickís back tire. I was right there and ran right over it. Both wheels. Those things are really hard. Luckily I was able to keep the bike up and didnít fall. Yep, pretty scary. It reared its head at me as I was crossing over it. It then went and stayed by the edge of the water. Hereís a pic of the nasty bugger.



Anyway, I managed to ride a total of 39 kilometers.

This happened to me the other day when I was on the rail trail only it was a squirrel. The color of the fur matched the ground clutter so well, I did not even see it until it was between my wheels, I thought for sure I was going to hit the ground, but got really lucky. Stupid fuzzy rats.

Did a 30 minute zone benchmarking ride on Zwift to verify if my FTP was accurate. Zone 1 was ridiculously easy and the suggestion was maybe to increase my FTP but after zone 5 with a Heart rate of 177 I decided it was just fine. Did an extra 3 mile cool down after the fact. Tomorrow is back to the training program, already in progress.

Today was about 20 miles. I passed 5000 ytd early this month. I stopped tracking at that point. I am keeping the miles at 10 to 20, or so, for now. My back feels better than it has since early spring. Two more sessions of pt, then on my own. I think yoga would be a beneficial activity for me to start practicing.

So had an interesting ride today. Buddy and I were planning on doing a short 35-45 miles, weather was solid overcast and some fog, temps in low 60's, but flipping humid. Not cool enough for long sleeves, but too warm for a vest. I choose the vest because was cold at first and then temp wise was ok from there. We are riding down a road that is a ridden heavily by bikes. The bike lane is 3 bikes wide so plenty of room. As we are riding down the road, a 90-ish age guy in a 150K Mercedes decides he is going to turn right when he is about 5 ft in front of us. My buddy slams into his car on his left side. I slam on my brakes and start to endo into the rear door window. Luckily I was able to stop the motion and made no contact with the car. Buddy is fine, no bodily damage at this point, although, I suspect he will start bruising tonight, he left a heck of a dent in his car door. His bike unbelievably had no issues outside of scratches on the side of his pedal, which also dented and removed about 10 inches of Mercedes right side door paint.

Dude had the unbelievable balls too get out of his car and start yelling and saying he was going to sue. I got in his face and told him, to back off while I looked at my friend whom he tried to kill. Buddy rides with GoPro's, he has everything recorded. Dude tried to drive off, but luckily right about that time, a cop pulled up to investigate. The guard at the gate to this place, call when he saw the accident. So after 3 people had the same story, and 2 camera's confirmed, old man, got himself 4 tickets. Driving on a suspended license, No insurance, expired tag, and failure to yield. He also has his car towed as he was arrested on a DUI charge about 4 weeks ago. All of this because he could not wait a whopping 5 seconds for us to pull through the intersection into the neighborhood. Oh and my buddy is a retired attorney, this should be fun as he plans to make this schmuck pay for new pedals, they are Garmin Vector power meter pedals, cover all his medical bills, and pain and suffering, lol.

Buddy called his wife to come get him and I decided to keep riding after sitting around for 90 mins, I was not tired. I ended up doing 70.5 miles, my legs called it a day around 65, and 65 is generous, I think they gave up at 60, but they keep telling me that is was 65, but I did not want to argue with them any longer.
