I intended to complete two things on Saturday. #1 Go for a 35-mile solo ride. #2 Mow the lawn.
I started out a nice ride, and ran across three young (and friendly) dogs. I had to stop to avoid hitting them. They were quite playful, and didn’t want to let me go. When I finally did get away, I later noticed that one of them had punctured one of my water bottles, and it had drained. I shortened the ride to 23 miles to avoid dehydration.
I damaged my mower while mowing the lawn, and won’t be finishing that until next weekend.
Sunday was much better. I met up with Tim for a 61-mile ride leaving from Sellersburg. We had advertised it as a RCCS ride, but it was last minute and no one else attended.
After the ride, my daughter and I went swimming at Hardy Lake. It was a nice way to relax after a bike ride.
I set a new record on bike miles for a week. My previous record was 186.1, my new record is 201.9. I’m on track to make June 2009 a record month for miles also. It’ll probably end up around 560 miles.
I’m not doing my normal “weekly average weight post”, but my weight is down a bit. My weight seems to just be bouncing around at around 200 lbs. I eat decently and ride quite a bit, but I could stand to improve both. It may be that I won’t ever reach my 175 lb goal, but I will keep trying.
