It's hot and it's been tough trying to get those long distance miles in. Today at 90+ degrees with high humidity it was a struggle to do 32 miles. It seems I am always looking for some shade. My average has dropped significantly by 1 MPH. It doesn't seem like much but when you are slow to begin with it hurts. I am trying to commute more and hope to ride my 10 miles to work tomorrow on my Fuji. That will give me an additional 20 miles of riding I would not do on a work day.
Compared to my outstanding mileage of last year I am right on target. I am at 1805 miles as of today where last year I was at 2254 at the end of June. I still have about 3 weeks to go before the end of June. My near last week will be on GOBA in Ohio where I should easily manage between 3-400 miles. If all goes according to plan I will exceed last years mileage at mid-year. The second half of the year my be a little tougher. I hope to add some miles by commuting more. Time will tell.
