May has become the month of PRs
My wife surprised me with my Salsa Vaya 2 in January and I've put a lot of miles on it (and hours) since then.
I sat down and looked at my numbers and was pretty surprised.
Mileage for 2013 (so far): 1751.
May mileage (not including next week) 511. This is a huge increase from the 300ish miles I put on the other four months so far. But my weight is finally coming back down quickly again (Hashimoto's disease means weight fluctuations are normal in my life).
My weight is finally passing below 225 again.
I also did my longest commute to date, which was 40 miles one way. The rest of the day I survived on iced coffee and was grateful I didn't have to do anything but sit at my desk and build the newspaper - but it was a blast.
Next month I finally will get rid of the CLEMENT USH 40c in favor of a set of Panaracer T Serv Protect 32c.
On an odd side note, those CLEMENT tires have killed me because even though they clearly indicate that 55-90PSI is the recommended inflation, if I push them over 60PSI they blow out the tubes. There is nothing cutting them on the inside of the DT Swiss rim, so I haven't got a clue what the issue is with them. But having the higher tire pressure should mean that my commute will improve pretty significantly through June.
