What do you mean? I think you did better than me last 2 months. I wouldn't have gone out in the 40 degree cloudy morning, today If I didn't get a phone call asking IF I was up for a ride... So out the door I went. Little breakfast (english muffin) and I was gone...

Will hit it again later today for another 10 or more. I have to get past that 300 mile mark today.

I do something similar. A few people on here had more miles than me. I saw that, and I want to catch all of them, and pass them. Not saying I will, BUT it is a challenge. So far I think I am near the top. Might not be the top, but I am near it.

Also all my miles are on Strava (not the trainer miles) in case anyone wishes to just mess with me.

I was planning on a solid 500 this month, but I'll be lucky to get half that. As is often the case, real life sometimes gets in the way. My wife is traveling for business and I'm the sole baby sitter for the week. I take her out for rides, but I can't go too far or she get's cranky from sitting in the trailer too long. So we mostly just do short rides to and from the playground. Then I'll be traveling over the next two weeks, but I'm hoping to get some beach rides in, so we'll see.

95 miles for the month so far. A little over 500 for the year. Pretty pleased with this.

3/3 - 34m
3/11 - 34m
3/12 - 15m
3/13 - 12m

Well, 97, if I count 2 miles around the neighborhood with my wife yesterday evening. Not really counting that.
