This week I set myself the same goal as last week, which was to get out and ride 5 of 7 days. Even though I didn't ride last Sunday, I was able to get out Monday through Thursday and again this morning.
Today's ride was grat. I rode out towards Blue Diamond and didn't stop once on the way out. I even rode the farthest I have in over a year. My total today was 16.44 miles in 1:31. An earlier start, cooler weather and a light breeze all combined to keep the temperatures reasonable.
It does seem that I can't getin a weekend ride without an issue, though. I noticed a wobble in my rear wheel which seemed to get worse as I rode. Come to find out, I seem to have broken 3 spokes on my rear wheel. Time to get into the LBS and have them replace the spokes and perform a tuneup. Hard to believe, but I've got almost 120 miles on the new bike so far.
Riding 5 of 7 days does tend to allow the mileage to add up. I managed 47.52 miles this week. Not a bad week at all. Hopefully I can keep up with the number of ride and increase the distance week by week.
Also this week, I had the final weigh in for the Biggest Winner competition. While I didn't have the loss I would have liked, I did post a loss. My final weight was 416 which gave me a 12 lb loss for the competition. Not sure how we placed in the competition, but a loss is always good. i'll update once they post the results.
