Miles: 70.2
Elevation: 1,450'

Miles - at least 41
Elevation - at least 5,350'

April 29 = 12.04 miles.
April 30 = 15.42 miles.

MTD = 261.03 miles.
YTD = 778.79 miles.

Well, fell a ways short of my goal, but I'm still going to count this month as a success.

Since I was rehabbing my "Intermedullary nailing of the tibia", I didn't know what I would be capable of.
Turned 100 miles today.

4-29 17 miles. Found a shortcut one my route home today that knocks off over a mile and, more importantly, gets me off the crowded evening bike trail. Now I just need to add in some distance to my morning commute to make up for the quicker ride home.

April - 330 miles. Made my first set goal.

My goal was 200, and on my commute home I passed that ending up with a total of 211. Yay!! Reality though I was way too lazy most of the month, I blame being jetlagged from my vacation trip. I'm planning on stepping it up next month.

Well I've been in hibernation, so not posting here. Under 100 miles for January to March. April hasn't quite shrugged off winter; but managed 235 miles in April. So I'm back and will start posting again. For whatever motivation these posts provide, I need it.
