    6/1 - 23 miles
    6/2 - 23 miles
    6/3 - 7 miles
    6/6 - 23 miles
    6/7 - 23 miles
    6/8 - 23 miles
    6/9 - 16 miles
    6/10 - 23 miles - 88 degrees, feels like 95 this afternoon - biked home, put on my running clothes, walked out the door and noped right back inside. Nonbike tri training continues to be a struggle. Hoping to do better this weekend by getting out in the morning when it's cooler. Bah!

    Month to date: 162 miles
    Year to date: 1722 miles

    11th Jun: 46.61 km

    Month to date: 324.41 km

    Pre-dawn rides are awesome and I'm sure you'll love it. Cool, little traffic and you get to see the sunrise every morning which makes getting my lazy *kitten* out of bed every morning worth it.

    ETA: fun on the kitten filter, waking my small, lazy and bad tempered Persian every morning is definitely the downside of getting up at 4:15

    Was under the weather so ended up just riding one-way to the game on Wednesday, then bussed home (using the bike rack). Rode both ways to/from tonight's game, as I'm feeling better today.

    Finally solved my front derailleur shifting problem by replacing my low band tourney groupset front mech (which was made for the tourney mountain 42/32/24 chainring) with a high band tourney groupset front mech (good for my tourney 50/39/30 triple and tourney STI shifters), and I now have a fully functioning STI setup on my northern commuter road bike.

    Unfortunately, it took about $100 of bike shop labor & parts to figure that out (which on the plus side got me a much needed barrel adjuster & new chain installed), as it wasn't hard to do the required work & tuning myself once I got the right parts. A bit frustrated with Shimano for recycling their groupset name between mountain and road bike lines.

    6/1 - 33 miles
    6/3 - 17 miles
    6/5 - 31 miles
    6/6 - 11 miles
    6/7 - 11 miles
    6/8 - 7 miles
    6/10 - 11 miles

    Total: 121 miles
    Goal: 500 miles
    Remaining: 379 miles

    2016 Races:
    Gran Fondo Florida Century - March - 23.1 mph avg on TT segments (draft legal)
    Ironman 70.3 Florida - April - 2:39 / 21.0 mph (no drafting)
    Ironman 70.3 Augusta - September
    Ironman Florida - November

    Not quite back to 100% (nor are my front derailleur tuning skills), but got in some commuting today after a painful run. As I do most of my 90 degree/90% humidity riding in Florida on flats where the 20mph wind flow can cool me down, I forgot how ugly riding hills in similar conditions can be when you can't go 20mph on ascents. On the plus side, it should cool down significantly here tomorrow.

    6/1 - 33 miles
    6/3 - 17 miles
    6/5 - 31 miles
    6/6 - 11 miles
    6/7 - 11 miles
    6/8 - 7 miles
    6/10 - 11 miles
    6/11 - 13 miles

    Total: 134 miles
    Goal: 500 miles
    Remaining: 366 miles

    Gran Fondo Florida Century - March - 23.1 mph avg on TT segments (draft legal)
    Ironman 70.3 Florida - April - 2:39 / 21.0 mph (no drafting)
