September Goal: 110 miles - going to try to be realistic and set myself up for success

September 1 - 11.7 miles - Fuji

First ride since my back went out on August 11. Felt great to be back in the saddle! But still having some back issues. Praise God, my back doesn't seem to bother me much when I'm riding. Before and after, yes, but not much while I'm actually up on two wheels.

August total to date: 11.7 miles

2023 total to date: 1524.9 miles
2023 Goal: 2,000 miles

All my miles are outdoor miles.
Think OUTSIDE! No box required.

MattTheMachine!! Guess I should make a personal goal. Since a goal is something you reach for, but is achievable and measurable, I will go for 300.

09/02 - 26.36 (PR distance), 1:50.37 (PR time ridden in one ride), 14.3mph avg, 2:00 fastest mile (PR individual mile). About 65F at start, 77F at finish. Weekly weigh-in after ride: 203.2#, lowest in several years.

That mileage is actually slightly short: I sweated so hard, when it hit the screen on my phone, the Fitbit app that I use to track everything paused the ride, twice!

In August I hit 625 miles but I know I won't do that much in September. So my goal is 500 miles this month.

Managed almost 400 miles in July and August, but next week is a travel week for work, so probably won't be riding until the end of the week. Let's see what I can get done this week, but 300 miles is probably the best I'll be able to do this month.

09/04 - 26.31, 1:54.19, 2:05 fastest mile (coming back down the canyon). Added mileage/time by climbing further up the canyon today vs. adding miles to the end of the ride like on Saturday. Made the max speed cruising speed coming down last longer. But a guy on a MTB passed me (slowly) going up the canyon. I was on the small ring and in my lowest gear, and kind of dying at that point having gone over an hour w/o a break. Of the many riders I saw out today, he was the only one besides me wearing a waist pack.

I didn't meet the goal for August mostly because I took a week off from cycling to do some yardwork and home improvement for a week with my son.
Although August was only 283+ miles, I am planning to bike the C&O Canal trail and the Great Allegheny Passage in September, so I have the fairly aggressive goal of 550 miles.

Date - Miles
01 - 12.01
02 - 16.01
04 - 12.02

September Goal: 550 miles
MTD Total: 40.05
August Total: 283.63 miles
YTD Total 739.49

09/05 - 2.14. My puny commuting round trip distance. It’s faster to cycle than to drive - my front door to the door next to my office took me 4:26 this morning. But I didn’t have to deal with the traffic into the parking lot (its a school, so most people are arriving at the same time), find a parking spot, park, unload, and walk into the building. Took about a minute longer to get back home since I had to stop for the light, it’s a bit uphill, and was in the 90s by then. Didn’t do a fitness ride today, but will be playing tennis this evening.

Now that it’s cooling off a bit, I’ll probably commute to work more.
