Whatís your goal for June ?
About to get hot .
My June goal is 125 miles . And to ride as many days as I can .
I did 205 last month , but I think I overdid it and need to cut back .
Today proved that . My riding friend wanted to ride the MUP this morning and although I didnít think I was ready , I was willing to give it a try .
Ended up with 10.8 miles and sore knees .
June Goal 125
6-01 10.8
MTD 10.8
YTD 471.5

Agreed..it's going to be hot and the rain season is coming
so to borrow from you..."I'm going to ride as many days
that I can", hopefully 200 but we shall see 👀

I’m not sure what to think about the weather here. It’s like the monsoon season or something, but on the up side, it’s keeping the heat down. I’ll try for 800 miles again this month.

Did my long commutes yesterday; 31.9 going in and 33.4 coming home. It was 97 degrees and that's the hottest temperature ride I've done in over 3 years. My HR was elevated...despite not pushing hard at all I set my highest 1 min and 5 min heart rates for 2021 on a climb. Whew!

June
Miles = 65.3
Elevation = 3,248

Alright, I'm back!! My foot has healed and I've done a few short rides, but now it's time to get serious. My goal for June is 175 miles.

June 03 = 11.77 miles.

MTD = 11.77 / 175.00

Iíve been experiencing an increase in hand pain , wrist , elbow , and even rib cage pain .
Hoping raising my handlebars to a cruiser height will help .
Iíll give the BMX bars a try for awhile and see if it helps . Something else will probably start hurting

The Hardrock with the BMX bars lasted only a few miles this morning and it was back to the garage for a stem and handlebar swap . Fun to ride , but too upright to ride very far .
I put my adjustable stem with a some mustache bars back on it . It’s a good compromise.

51 miles at an easy 16.1 average speed today. Took it easy having to nurse a stiff back muscle. Bent over to pick up something on Wednesday and BAM! Almost knocked me to my knees. Took my breath away. Birthday was last month, 58 so that 60 is creeping up on me and my body ha ha ha!

Good start for June.

100 miles MTD
goal 400.
