Goal 200 miles

9/4 - 17.33 - brutally humid after a humid/rainy holiday weekend with family
9/8 - 22.52 - rained for 3 days straight - extremely windy day (gusts up to 25+ MPH) but the longest ride since returning to the saddle a little over a month ago.
9/10 - 17.58 - slightly windy but great day for a ride in less than 1.25 hours. Daylight is getting slim after work.
9/15 - 19.16 - great day in SE WI but also humid
9/16 - 25.52 - early day of riding and weather was great, new PR for distance and felt pretty good

MTD - 102.11 - 14 days to get 98 miles. Going to be tough with the things going on at work and daylight hours getting shorter, but going to try my best.

I am at 435 miles for the month so far. So i should make my 800 mile goal for the month. I have a metric planned for Saturday and a Full Century planned for the 29th of this month. The full will be my first. I did 2 metrics last month and other than not liking my hill climbing abilities they went well. Since I have been concentrating more than half my rides on hillier rides.
