I somehow managed to do 150 the last two months with goals of 100 .
So I’m setting this months goal at 150 , maybe I can make it to 200 .
I'm changing my goal to 125 , I’m having a little knee issue and I’m going to start having some walking days in between my riding days.

Since I work at a hotel that is (for now) still open and I'm considered an "essential" employee, I've decided to do some bike commuting this month. It's a hair under 10 miles round trip (but some days I might add some 'side streets' to increase the mileage), so some of my 225 miles I'm setting as my goal for April will be commuter miles and the rest will be regular rides and probably some trainer miles as well. So, having said all that.....

April 01 = 8.06 miles (trainer)

MTD = 8.06 miles of (at least) 225 miles.

beautiful morning. Waiting until the temps passed 60 . Only saw three cars and three people working in their yard . I must have missed the walkers . Good ! Tired of turning around when I see them. .

Glad my main exercise can be done from home .

My ride started off a little rough , too many people out , to avoid and , dogs . I can’t stand dogs . No offense to anyone who is a dog owner , but I don’t care for them.
