A ride for me today, Mrs Contango was at work. When I was ready to head back to meet her at work I figured I had enough time to find one last geocache then head home. As I set off I was afraid I'd be late, but when I was within a couple of miles of her work I realised I still had 15 minutes to go. First thought - how did that happen? Then I figured I'd been going almost flat out for the last several miles, and "flat out" now means faster than "flat out" used to mean...

I had originally thought to do 55 miles today just to tip over 1000k for the year but today just didn't feel like the day to be racking up miles for their own sake.

Feb 03 - 4 miles
Feb 08 - 12 miles
Feb 10 - 53 miles
Feb 13 - 20 miles
Feb 14 - 21 miles
Feb 16 - 13 miles
Feb 18 - 13 miles
Feb 19 - 82 miles
Feb 23 - 32 miles
Feb 24 - 18 miles
Feb 25 - 26 miles
Feb 27 - 32 miles
Feb 28 - 20 miles
Feb 29 - 27 miles

Total 373 miles
Total for year: 593 miles

Around 414 this month. I wanted to push it on Leap Day, but it's raining - so that probably won't happen. Oh well... gonna push it for 500 next month!

My target has been 100 a week, and I'm failing badly at that....however, by the time I get home tonight after work, I'll have 169.32 for the month. I swear that I'll do well over 200 next month.

Today we did 31 in the wind, heat (well, 83 degrees is hot to a northerner) and humidity so I am at 413.58 for the month and 845.75 for the year.

Good month!

Next month I am having company for the last two weeks of the month and then we will be hauling the rv up north so most all my riding is going to be the first two weeks. I should get in a couple of hundred miles.

I suck!!! 42miles

I did get my commuter re-geared. Complete new drivetrain. I went with more of a mt. bike setup. I swapped from an 8 speed to 9. 11-34 cassette. 26-38-48 chainring. Now I can spin more while climping. Hopefully, it will inspire me enough to get off my butt more through March.

I did have 10k miles on the commuter for the plus side.

To paraphrase Maxwell Smart, "Made it by that much". 13.49 mile commute gives me 350.23 miles for February.

It was a tough slog into 20 to 25 mph wind.

I took the long work weekend off of the bike due to weather (wind and biting cold). That's a total of 5 commuting days away from the bike so far this month. I'm running behind on my distance at this point but I'll see if I can catch back up...

Catching up there towards the end of the month was tough on my bones.

As far as the weightloss goal goes ... Nope. I'm still plateaued.

Weather issues and then a wisdom tooth that decided to become infected last weekend limited my February to 123.6 miles plus several hours on the indoor trainer. Not what I wanted but better than a year ago when my mileage was zero. Got the wisdom tooth extracted on leap day so should be riding by this week end.

Looks like I failed, ended up with 69 miles of running and 20 miles of biking. Would of had a 100 if I had been able to do my scheduled run of 13 miles on Sunday, but had car issues that I had to deal with. Planning on hitting harder this month.
