    So while riding on the KATY trail tonight I ran into a guy, Richard, who is cycling across the USA from LA to NY as part of his around-the-world bike trip. He is doing 95 to 100 miles per day. I rode with him for a few minutes and got to tell him the local trails stops, where to cold camp, etc. He has a website...

    https://richardbike.com/

    His goal is to ride around the world. Australia is done, USA is 1/2 done.

    I just got a cool story to tell at work tomorrow!

    Well that's more like it! Sun shining, bike gleaming in the sun after a thorough cleaning at the weekend, which left it looking almost as good as the day I got it, and certainly am awful lot cleaner than it's been for a long while. Amazing how quiet it was as well - I must have got used to an awful lot of clatter from the the chainset prior to this - turns out chains are silvery colour not black - who knew? :blush:

    I got back in the saddle last night and I think the apathy I felt about my last ride was just a weird fluke and I'm now feeling very excited about biking again. Ended the ride with a volleyball match with some friends, and it ended up being a great evening

    I got in 12.4 miles this morning. Dang mental milestones reminding me of past rides, before I got sick, egged me on until I found myself at the end of the trail. The problem with trails, at least ones that don't loop, is that you have to go back home.

    I agree...I go 30 to 45 minutes one way, turn around, repeat.

    Wed 22 - 30.72. Pushed the boat out for the evening ride, partly to make up for Monday, partly as a pre-emptive make up for not cycling tomorrow due to the supposed torrential rain expected, which now seems to have largely evaporated. Anyway, really pleased with that evening run which was both the longest uninterrupted ride since I've had a satnav (and possibly ever), and certainly my first ever 1000+ ft ascent (which might not sound like much to any half-mountain goat types from the likes of Yorkshire or villages in the Alps, but as someone raised in Norfolk who remains strongly suspicious of the idea of landscape having a 3rd dimension, that was a lot for me - natural KOM I am not).

    6/22 - 23 miles - rain forecasted for the commute home so I road my fendered giant. It didn't rain, but I'm thinking I did damage something in my last tip over to avoid hitting a car who ran a stop sign. Either that or I'm just super tired and it's wearing on me. Slowest trip home in quite some time.

    Just getting in commuting mileage the past few days, as my dedicated exercise time has been focused on running & swimming this week. I'll try to get in a longer ride tomorrow following my afternoon ballgame, as I have plenty of hours of extra light in the evening. Mileage targets for biking (500) & running (200) will come down to the wire, but both should be doable without resorting to an ironman on my last day.

    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
    6/12 - 13 miles
    6/15 - 10 miles
    6/16 - 35 miles
    6/17 - 25 miles
    6/18 - 43 miles
    6/19 - 30 miles
    6/20 - 11 miles
    6/21 - 11 miles
    6/22 - 11 miles

    Total: 323 miles
    Goal: 500 miles
    Remaining: 177 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

    June running total: 870km
    Target: 1300km

    Very likely will miss the target this month - rides for the rest of the month were planned they don't add up to 1300
