    I hear you @icemom011 on the spending time away from loved ones. While my wife is supportive, these three plus hour rides I sometimes do really get on her nerves. I try to go early on the weekends while she and the kids are still sleeping.

    I'm lucky that my OH is a cyclist too. We don't always ride together but can go out and do separate rides at the same time as a break from spending all the time together WFH!

    30 mile TT yesterday. I didn't feel like I quite got as much out of myself as I'd like but my Garmin said this so I guess I didn't do too badly...ilwxusxrz1d0.png

    This is a new data with my new heart rate monitor. Not too bad, and I've been saying for a while that i feel like I'm in my 20s. Just celebrated 49th bday, btw.

    Nice set of landmarks after today's ride:

    Hit 4,000 miles for the year.

    "Lazarus", my #1 bike, clocked up 12,000 miles. It was killed by a rogue car driver but rose again, hence the name....

    Exceeded my highest number of PRs in a year (746 and counting) - a little surprising as thanks to the pandemic most of my riding has had to be close to home on roads I've ridden a lot.

    Earned the Strava badge for 600+km in September.

    No long rides this week but totalled 181 miles with six rides.
    435 miles for September but slightly behind on my climbing goal (as usual... :blush: ).

    In the week that marked the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain here's a picture of a WW2 pillbox standing next to one of the hard climbs I do in the in the Surrey Hills. Built to defend the approaches to London from the invasion that never happened.
