Monday - 20.8 miles 15.4 avg 31.1 max
Wednesday - 17.2 miles 16.7 avg max 32.4
Today - 17.2 miles 16.7 avg max 31.1

I doubt I'll ride this weekend with all the rain were going to get.

Ten miles, 6 miles of it with my teen age son. Hot and muggy. It was like riding in a hot shower. May try to get 25 in tomorrow but forecast is more of the same.

I went out on a 24-mile route but had to cut it to 16.

I never used to have a problem with heat. This was my first ride since heart surgery in extreme heat. I tried to sprint to beat a traffic light ... and ruined myself. I didn't recover for the rest of the ride, probably ten miles. My legs were fine but I was nauseous, weak, and felt my heart rate was uncertain. it didn't suck as bad as some thing ... but it wasn't fun.

I got my revenge though ... I went out after dark and did another 20 miles.

I'm 55, and the heat absolutely wears my a** out these days. Didn't used to affect me any. Age will do that I reckon.

I think you're right, I just turned 50, and if I'm not careful riding in the sweltering summer heat down here, I will be done in less than 20 miles. My issue yesterday (6/24) was I'm on a much lighter bike now, so I was keeping up with some of the road guys, which in hindsight was a mistake. After a 10 mile "sprint" I was feeling a bit of fatigue, which I've never had before, so from now on, I'm sticking to my average speed, until the heat breaks in October.

Only 8.5 today on the old Allez. It's 106 here today. Better than yesterday's 111. Not a good ride day. Heading for a 45 mile coast ride tomorrow to Carpenteria, CA.

It has been a long time since I did a metric century; so I took advantage of a cool front and went 64 miles today. It felt so much easier than the first one I ever did back in Nov. '16, and that one was a supported charity ride.
