But my goals for the year: 9000 miles, complete at least one 300K ride and get my weight down to 200lbs are all still achievable. So February 1st is a chance to re-focus myself on these objectives, especially the food intake and it's affect on my weight.
Today's commute to work was however, very refreshing. I always feel good when I get off the bike in the evening at home. Tonight when I walked in there was also a fire going in the fireplace. Priceless.
Riding home down Oakwood as I approached Elvaton, where I should have made a left, I was pushing up a slight rise and when I saw the light turn green I just kept pushing. When Oakwood turns sharp right and becomes Old Mill another quarter mile past my turn I realized my mistake. Bonus miles on my commute home from work. More evidence I'm not riding enough.
