Bought a 2017 Trek Emonda SL6 from their Red Barn Refresh site in early June, the first road bike that I've had, and the 64cm frame actually fits my 6' 6", 258lb physique which is a first too! Previously I had an ill-fitting MTB and before that a Raleigh 3 speed back in the 80s.

Hoping that alternating rides with some heavy bag work at the gym will help me to get down to 230lbs by the end of the year. Rides will be around a roughly 18.4 mile loop that takes in some brief climbing of ~439 feet. As well as the mileage target, I want to get under 1 hour for this loop eventually.

June Goal: 200 miles

6/5: 18.28 miles in 1h 2m 20s
6/8: 18.29 miles in 1h 2m 21s
6/10: 18.43 miles in 1h 2m 18s
6/12: 18.50 miles in 1h 2m 14s

MTD: 73.50 miles

As an aside, I find it somewhat ridiculous that all 4 rides, in varied conditions, have been within 7s of each other

Between dental surgery the 30th of last month keeping me from riding the beginning of the month, and being in the middle of an interstate move this very hot month, my goals are just to ride as much and when I can while avoiding killing myself in the heat.

Took my Trek 820 Mountain Track (got for very cheap) to Utah, and started riding on the 5th. Exploring routes around our new home, and how to get to and from my new workplace (job doesn’t start till July, though). Lots of hills around the new place, and dirt tracks right outside my door. Unfortunately, owning a chrome-moly steel mountain bike doesn’t make me a mountain biker. I have no idea how to really ride on dirt. The plan is to use this thing as the commuter/winter weather bike.
6/5: 9.46
6/6: 10
6/7: 4.93
6/8: 10.97

Drove back to Arizona, and started back on the road bike.

6/11: 15.05
6/13: 15.05 (same route as 11th, 2 mins faster)

MTD: 65.46
YTD: 1442.01

Plan to ride again in the early morning, but then we’re loading a trailer and going back to SLC, so probably no riding after that till Monday.

Slowly increasing effort and mileage. Trying to stay at about 3% increase in power output per ride.

6/16: 18.28 miles in 0h 58m 51s

6/16 was the same circuit as before, but with a new bike computer. Not sure why that would make 0.2 miles difference though. Also first time out in proper long cycling pants and jersey rather than baggy gym shirt and shorts. Definitely felt like less of a windsock, and it shows in the time.

Stepped up the distance a bit and felt good with it. Rode 6/18 in the evening and 6/19 in the morning (day off) and was definitely feeling the extra work by the end of the second ride! Gave me even more respect for those who do a century ride.

Man, nasty weather up here. Upper 90's, heat index got to 109F yesterday. This is about 20 degrees above normal for this time of year. Didn't go out to ride until 9pm.

June Goal: 200 miles
June To Date: 206.08 miles

Made it with a week to spare! Today's ride was my highest average speed so far at 18.7 MPH, almost 3 minutes and 0.6 MPH faster than the same circuit 2 days ago. Not sure why as I didn't do anything different in terms of rest or nutrition. It felt very smooth though.


Next goals are a 300 mile month, and work towards a 50 mile ride.
