Since riding the studded rain bike 100 miles on Thanksgiving I've been out exclusively on the Evergreen, all on paved roads however.
With Jen and the girls at her folks I didn't have much to do besides work and ride. Friday I got 83 miles in riding to Howard Lake and back.
Saturday I was a bit tired so I did a small Briggs Lake Loop before work, about 32 miles. Working over the Holiday weekend is fun. Lots of people and everyone is usually in a good mood. The days go by fast.
There wasn't much on TV (we get about 6 channels) Saturday night so I went to bed early to ready for Sunday's ride. I was on the bike by 5:15. I had a route in mind but wasn't sure on how far or long I would go. Kind of depended on the body and mind. The weather was weird. It was just below freezing and a thick fog. I and my bike eventually became covered in a sheet of ice!
I pretty much did a East then West route. I did travel South a bit too, but not much. I ended up going through both Zimmerman and Princeton. I had the Garmin on the map page but was watching the time on my watch. At Princeton it was time to head for home. There wasn't much but there was a tailwind making the push a bit easier. I made it home with 5 hours 17 minutes and 100.3 miles. Again, funny how that works out! I didn't do any add miles to get to 100.
November for the past few years has been a big month for me. With the holiday season now upon us life gets busy in December. This November was no different. I piled on the miles and saddle time and will get what I can now in December. Last week I just missed 25 hours and 390 miles. Since October 10th I'v averaged over 300 miles and about 20 hours. The next two weeks I hope to get 12-15 hours. As much as I dislike intervals I hope to incorporate those in once, maybe twice, a week too. Not sure if I'll start that before or after the Riddle Box race in Sioux Falls on December 10th.
Even though I worked the weekend it's still a Monday...back at it.
