    Increased resistance on indoor trainer. (Which tells how much my fitness level has improved since January.) Moving forward I’m considering this Level 2 (L2). I’m still riding indoors and using Zwift.

    I’ve also changed my saddle to a smaller/thinner one and am adjusting to that too. Lots of changes for me at this time.

    Getting out most weekends now. Yay! :smiley:
    Temperature at last in the range where my silly fingers and toes will maintain some circulation....

    Spent some money on a new helmet, more aerodynamic and with a built in visor - noticeably less wind noise is a nice bonus.


    March:
    5 Hours, 95 miles, 9 Personal Records, 8 Activities.

    YTD:
    32 Hours, 542.6 miles, 20 Personal Records, 37 Activities.

    Yay!
    Outdoor cycling mileage has overtaken indoor training at last.
    Nice 55 miles out into the Surrey countryside yesterday without feeling cold. :)


    March:
    12 Hours, 206 miles, 9 Personal Records, 13 Activities.

    YTD:
    38 Hours, 653.9 miles, 20 Personal Records, 42 Activities.


    Americans!
    Please can I ask you to keep your wind to yourself? ;)

    Every time I've ridden this month it's been a struggle into a really strong wind. As I'm not exactly "Mr Aero" it kills my speed. Getting some nice wind assisted PRs on the way home though so not all bad.

    Mileage coming up and headed for the hills today for the first time this season. The repeated false summits of Staple Lane are as hateful as ever. https://www.strava.com/segments/628859


    March:
    21 Hours, 360 miles, 24 Personal Records, 21 Activities.

    YTD:
    48 Hours, 808.5 miles, 35 Personal Records, 50 Activities
    Still windy every time I've managed to ride, starting to dream of a calm day when I can get out on my carbon wheeled bike - simply too lively in big cross winds.

    Upgraded tyres to Continental GP4000sII's on my Roubaix and very impressed so far. My old Gatorskinz are tough as old boots but not grippy or fast.


    March:
    26 Hours, 433 miles, 38 Personal Records, 25 Activities.

    YTD:
    52 Hours, 880.6 miles, 49 Personal Records, 54 Activities

    MTD: 303 miles / 300 mile goal. And I've still got next week to go!
    YTD: 916.7 miles

    Getting back out on the road next month (trainers are useful, but they do get boring). Can't wait!

    Its been a while since I've checked in here. I hope everyone has been having a great March.

    My totals to date for March, 284.1km. Unfortunately I won't hit my goal of 500km this month, but that's perfectly ok. There's always next month.

    Jan totals: 508.3
    Feb totals: 364.4

    I'm seeing this a little late in the month, but that's OK because until yesterday the weather hasn't been nice enough to ride anyway. I haven't ridden much in the last few years, but I definitely want to get back to riding and do the Tour de Troit again. Recovering from a back injury still, so going to set myself a modest goal of 5 miles, which basically means "I'll get on my bike again before the end of the month."

    3/28: 3.6 miles

    OK, so I need to do a bit more than just get on the bike. Can't ride like I used to, plus still a bit cold out (and I didn't dress for it).

    Tue 28 - 24.06 miles: MTD 372.46 / 350, YTD 1025.07 / 4000

    Over the line for the month, and over 1K for the year (which was actually yesterday, but I didn't notice then). Pretty pleased with that

    113.1km of 150km goal

    Not a single bike commute last week, due to a mix of reasons (weather/travel/transporting things/laziness). This week the weather is really nice, so I should still have a chance to make my goal.

    And it's definitely spring now: I swallowed the first bug of the year yesterday.

    @sijomial It didn't have the decency to introduce itself - they never do!
    I usually log them as "Generic - Random Insect, 1 g, 5 calories " :grin:
