Haven't rode outside since August, but already getting bored of riding indoors on the stationary bike so I plan on getting out A LOT this month before winter shows up so I'm setting a written goal of 100 miles this month.

11/1 - 40.2

MTD: 40.2
YTD: 2387mi

Between unfortunate family circumstances and traveling a lot for work lately, October was less than good for my cycling habit, but despite traveling (again!) starting tomorrow for the week, I'm determined to make the most of November in Texas (pffft, we don't get cold weather).

16 miles MTD. With the change back to standard time I'll do well to get 5 miles in between work and dark during the week. Here's hoping the weekends aren't too nasty.

Been off the bike since August 10th, so no earth shaking goal for November...just 100 miles. I'll try and stretch it to 125 miles, but the 100 miles has to come first (gee, ya think?? LOL!!). So, having said that.....

November 01 = 4.92 "fat-boy-is-out-of-shape" miles.

MTD = 4.92 out of (at least) 100 miles.

Well, the last few months haven't been kind to me as far as weather (either cold or rainy) or time (Being out of town hurts). But if you don't set a goal to try to ride the miles, you won't be as motivated. So, I'll try again, but maybe lower my goals, since I'm going to be starting at a deficit with my bike in the shop.

November Goal: 250 mi (Stretch: 300 mi) - Elevation Goal: 6000'

Lots of things interfering with riding this month, but I'm going to shoot for 150 mph, with a stretch goal of 200.

Once again I'm in for as many quality miles as I can get. Finally found out on Friday why I have been having issues with breathing. It seems I'm asthmatic.

With Sundays race and Tuesday commute have 50 miles already.

Picture is from Sundays CX race. Rain moved in right after we finished and the folks who raced after us enjoyed very muddy conditions.

11/1-11/3 my bike was in the shop, and it was raining. 11/4 - 11/5, I had a little bit of a cold. Today, I felt much better, so I did my usual ride. A little bit of a headwind, but not too bad of an effort even with the headwind. Especially considering I was getting over a cold, and it had been almost a week since I had ridden.
