What with weather and work travel, my first ride in a week. Working today, but took a break at lunch to get in a ride, as the weather is going to deteriorate tonight/tomorrow with Hurricane Lee off the New England coast. It was nice riding during the day - maybe a taste of what to expect when I retire in a couple of years.

I didn't meet the goal for August mostly because I took a week off from cycling to do some yardwork and home improvement for a week with my son.
Although August was only 283+ miles, I am planning to bike the C&O Canal trail and the Great Allegheny Passage in September, so I have the fairly aggressive goal of 550 miles.

Date - Miles
01 - 12.01
02 - 16.01
04 - 12.02
05 - 16.1
06 - 16.02
07 - 20.04
08 - 12.06
11 - 12.05
13 - 14.01
14 - 20.21


September Goal: 550 miles
MTD Total: 150.57
August Total: 283.63 miles
YTD Total 851

09/02 - 26.36 (PR distance), 1:50.37 (PR time ridden in one ride), 14.3mph avg, 2:00 fastest mile (PRindividual mile). About 65F at start, 77F at finish. Weekly weigh-in after ride: 203.2#.
09/04 - 26.31, 1:54.19, 2:05 fastest mile (coming back down the canyon). Canyon climb - painfully slow.
09/05 - 2.14. My puny commuting round trip distance. Many days, it’s faster to cycle than to drive.
09/06 - 14.33 - includes workout miles before work, plus commute.
09/07 - 19.07 - includes workout miles before work, commute to work and then the district office and back, and then home.
09/08 - 12.25, 45:53 rolling time, 16mph avg
09/09 - 30.24: distance PR. 2:35.15 rolling time: time in the saddle PR (and yes, I am chafed a bit). Max speed (downhill from canyon pavement dead-end): 37mph - downhill speed PR. Fastest mile: 1’49” - mile PR.
09/11 - 12.19, 46.53, 15.6 mph. Put Specialized saddle back on - the one I used Saturday is a no-go: too wide on the tongue, not enough of a channel. Played with the angle and position on this ride. It’s okay, but kind of hard.
09/12 - cross training, no miles
09/13 - 12.19, 45:40, 16mph avg
09/14 - 11.2: 8.35 tempo workout, 2.31 commuting.
09/15 - 9.36, 33.25, 16.8mph
09/16 - 22.04, 1:23.08, 15.9mph - on a trip to the LA area, rode from my hotel out to the Pacific Coast Highway and a few miles on it. Lots of water, which is nice to see for a desert dweller.

Sept MTD: 195

Sept goal: 300

9/2/2023: 50 miles, 3:48 time, 13.1 mph average pace
9/3/2023: 10 miles, active recovery ride on an ebike, so time/pace is irrelevant
9/4/2023: 33.3 miles, pace unknown, forgot to hit 'resume' on Strava after pausing at a stoplight. Oops. If it wasn't recorded, did it happen?
9/7/2023: 22.6 miles, 20 miles at 16.4 mph average pace, then 2.6 miles cooldown. Fastest 20 miles I've managed ever. Could not have gone faster but could have maintained the pace for longer. Missed the last two days due to my daughter being in the hospital.
9/9/2023: 100.0 miles at 13.6 mph average pace. Read it and weep. This is my first century. Lots of learnings that I'll post about in a separate post. I'm pretty sure my soul left my body in the last 15 miles. Not bad for a 300 lb fat guy.
9/13/2023: 22.7 miles at 16.8 mph average pace. New 20 mile average pace record for me. Had to take the past couple days off because of work travel. Hoping to rack up some big miles here in a bit.
9/15/2023: 31.3 miles at 12.4 mph average pace. Between it being dark and on a unfamiliar route this turned into more of a Zone 2 workout than planned, but that's okay.
9/18/2023: 12.6 miles at an unknown pace, was just a pleasure ride with the kid

Ended up with less going on this month than I’d anticipated. Goal met. I’m going to see if I can squeeze out 1,000 miles.

Edited to say I went and got a double dose to get on pace.

09/05 - 2.14. My puny commuting round trip distance. Many days, it’s faster to cycle than to drive.
09/06 - 14.33 - includes workout miles before work, plus commute.
09/07 - 19.07 - includes workout miles before work, commute to work and then the district office and back, and then home.
09/08 - 12.25, 45:53 rolling time, 16mph avg
09/09 - 30.24: distance PR. 2:35.15 rolling time: time in the saddle PR (and yes, I am chafed a bit). Max speed (downhill from canyon pavement dead-end): 37mph - downhill speed PR. Fastest mile: 1’49” - mile PR.
09/11 - 12.19, 46.53, 15.6 mph. Put Specialized saddle back on - the one I used Saturday is a no-go: too wide on the tongue, not enough of a channel. Played with the angle and position on this ride. It’s okay, but kind of hard.
09/12 - cross training, no miles
09/13 - 12.19, 45:40, 16mph avg
09/14 - 11.2: 8.35 tempo workout, 2.31 commuting.
09/15 - 9.36, 33.25, 16.8mph
09/16 - 22.04, 1:23.08, 15.9mph - on a trip to the LA area, rode from my hotel out to the Pacific Coast Highway and a few miles on it. Lots of water, which is nice to see for a desert dweller.
09/19 - 11.84, 43:09, 16.4mph
09/20 - 6.75, 25:20, 16mph

09/02 - 26.36 (PR distance), 1:50.37 (PR time ridden in one ride), 14.3mph avg, 2:00 fastest mile (PRindividual mile). About 65F at start, 77F at finish. Weekly weigh-in after ride: 203.2#.

9/1/2023: 20 miles, 1:23 time, 14.3 mph average pace
9/2/2023: 50 miles, 3:48 time, 13.1 mph average pace
9/3/2023: 10 miles, active recovery ride on an ebike, so time/pace is irrelevant
9/4/2023: 33.3 miles, pace unknown, forgot to hit 'resume' on Strava after pausing at a stoplight. Oops. If it wasn't recorded, did it happen?
9/7/2023: 22.6 miles, 20 miles at 16.4 mph average pace, then 2.6 miles cooldown. Fastest 20 miles I've managed ever. Could not have gone faster but could have maintained the pace for longer. Missed the last two days due to my daughter being in the hospital.
9/9/2023: 100.0 miles at 13.6 mph average pace. Read it and weep. This is my first century. Lots of learnings that I'll post about in a separate post. I'm pretty sure my soul left my body in the last 15 miles. Not bad for a 300 lb fat guy.
9/13/2023: 22.7 miles at 16.8 mph average pace. New 20 mile average pace record for me. Had to take the past couple days off because of work travel. Hoping to rack up some big miles here in a bit.
9/15/2023: 31.3 miles at 12.4 mph average pace. Between it being dark and on a unfamiliar route this turned into more of a Zone 2 workout than planned, but that's okay.
9/18/2023: 12.6 miles at an unknown pace, was just a pleasure ride with the kid
9/19/2023: 8 miles at 16.8 mph pace. "I won't need this flat kit" he thought. Narrator "he would in fact need it". Oops. Had to make the call of shame when I got a flat and it cut my ride short.
9/21/2023: 22.5 miles. Tried going for a new 20 mile pace record but then it started raining on me and got dark, so I ended up only at 14.8 mph average pace. There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear and I have bad gear.

MTD: 333.2 miles
Goal: 500

In September I'm riding for the Great Cycle Challenge to raise money for the Children's Cancer Research Fund.
