    Rode the Cream City Century....actually more like 93 miles of it. Have only ridden the trainer once in the last month basically. This was literally my first time back on the bike after the accident. Not bad time (about 5:30) for the 93.

    Now...if the flooding would clear up I could ride to work again.

    Pulled my daughter on her one wheeler for about 8 miles to warm up and then did some interval training for about 45min.

    Been off the bike for a couple weeks - too damn busy - but I got out of school early tonight, so I had time for a quick ride: 21 miles @16.6 MPH. That's a pretty good average for me, so I guess I didn't regress too much (going to the gym must help, eh?).

    Also, note to self: 45 minutes before sunset is not the appropriate time to try out a new route. Oh well, at least I have lights on my bike.

    60 miles today. Rode my bike to work and back. The morning commute was great, but the headwind sucked in the evening

    17 miles on lakefront path this morning then ran 4 miles in the afternoon, not as bad as getting tasered but pretty stupid to run in this heat.

    Was able to get in a long ride around Lake Pepin, the birthplace of water skiing. Met five others in Red Wing, MN. We crossed the Mississippi into WI and took the Great River Road Bike Route (WI 35) to Nelson. Took a little break and rehydrated, had a cliff bar, etc..Got on WI 25 and headed to Wabasha, MN after crossing the Mississippi again. Took US 61 north, through Lake City back to Red Wing. The weather was very humid at the start We received word the weather was turning bad back in Red Wing when we reached Nelson, and we could see the dark clouds back to the north. We made it to Lake City dry. But the rain started just as we left. Last 15 miles were in the rain. 71 miles total for the ride at 16.7 avg.

    Sun/Mon/Tue yes! Work is finally not-so-crazy: only MOSTLY crazy now.

    Apparently, I didn't get the memo, but it's reseal your driveway week in West Bloomfield, MI. I swear, on my ride up/around/through the neighborhoods bordering Lone Pine and Covington there were no fewer than 10 resealed, noxious driveways last night. I think I may have suffered brain damage from the fumes.

    No rides today or yesterday...just took the GRE this afternoon and actually did better than I thought I would!

    New tires in today for the Bergamo, so I'm going to change those, clean the drivetrain and then (hopefully) take it out for a nice spin today (8/30) to downtown New Brunswick and maybe out to the canal.

    I really need to get back into the whole taking the roadie out and going to nowhere in particular again...I miss that. Though now I'm studying for the A+ exam in October...lol.

    40 miles today ....an absolutely perfect day. Loving my teaching schedule this year. 7:30-10:50 I can easily be rolling by 11:30 and get in a good ride before daughter gets home. I'm lucky.

    Rode my "hilly" route with my friend and we were slow....chatting and catching up on everything since school started. Good times...Crystal

    8/31 = NO.

    Here I am, once again, covered in filth and muck and looking at another work until midnight or 2am night. Today was a beautiful day (so I hear) and I'm jealous of all who rode.

    9/1 - 31 miles. This morning ride was supposedly just a short 10 mile jaunt. I didn't bring my trunk bag with me which contain my nutrition, extra pint of H2O, tools, U lock, helmet cover, rain jacket etc. I seem to be carried away by the urge to go for more. Told myself I need to quit at 15 then 20 then 25 and finally what the heck it's a nice day out, why not go for more and ended with 31. A great way to start the month of September with reasonable distance. 59 degree when I started and had my bike jersey under the fleece and sweat pants and no trunk bag, thus the reason for a short 10 mile ride as originally planned.
