    Got in a bit of city commuting up north before returning south on Friday. Now that I'm back in Florida, I'm doing more daytime riding as it is just too hot to run when the sun is out. Falling a touch behind on my mileage goal, but I have a few long and intense rides planned for the next few days which should get my numbers back up.

    5/3 - 21 miles
    5/4 - 13 miles
    5/5 - 4 miles
    5/6 - 4 miles
    5/8 - 33 miles
    5/10 - 33 miles

    Total: 108 miles
    Goal: 500 miles
    Remaining: 392 miles

    happy international bike to work day! Rain on the way in, so I just biked to the train this morning. I had an eventful commute home though. A stupid huge black suv corporate car pulled out in front of me a block from work and I went down hard on my left knee and knocked one of my brifters off kilter. Hoping it won't be too sore to ride tomorrow. Will probably get a pretty sweet bruise though.
    Sorry to hear that - I hope you gave him an earful! Also hope that lively purple bike is not too sore!

    Thanks for all the well wishes guys! The problem when this happens (and it sadly happens every few months) is that immediately afterwards I'm in a semi state of shock and just try to gather myself together and get going again. Only after a few blocks do I think, huh, I should have said something. Bah! I'm pretty sure I'm going to die on my bike, but hey, at least I'll go doing something I love. How's that for morbid, lol.

    Reminder for myself and others, if you do actually get hit - http://www.citylab.com/navigator/2015/05/what-to-do-when-youre-hit-by-a-car/393809/
