15 miles in still bad air quality. it was difficult. less than 600 feet in elevation over those 15 miles so obviously not the toughest
but it felt like 2,000 ft gained over the same distance. a little improved over yesterday tho. hoping friday is better.

11miles today (11 hilly miles). Didn't push for more as I'm gradually getting in shape and unfortunately when restoring my high school bike, I managed to get a 1/2" wire from the brake cable
in my foot, right where my big toe meets my foot (sharp little suckers, don't trim cables in socks). A couple hours at a foot surgeon couldn't remove it in the office, I'm taking a look see attitude before signing for full blown surgery.
Really have been absent serious riding for some time, so I'd be happy to get 50 miles in a week.

Yeah, I took a bit of a hiatus in July and August. Partly due to work, partly due to the heat (just don't enjoy riding when it's extremely hot anymore), and honestly just plain burned out. Have the Great Cycle Challenge to motivate me this month and get me back in the groove.

Zero miles today. Took the day off from pedaling and did chores. I started the day on my school bus, went grocery shopping, did some laundry, cut the grass, pulled weeds including some always tough wire grass, finished some paperwork and made necessary phone calls. Before getting back on the school bus for the afternoon take home, I relaxed and read a bit. Back home I made a big salad for dinner with an assortment of greens, veggies, fruit, cold meat and cheese, homemade citrus honey mustard dressing. I am finishing that as I type. All in all, a pretty good day. I didn't so much as touch a bicycle.
