I had hoped to see an increase of riding this month. My seasonal work was done January 3 though I did work the next two weekends. My weekdays were free and I should have been riding 10-20 miles every day.
This January was colder than usual. And I was lazy and used the cold an excuse not ride too many days.
I didn't realize how windy January is. Every time I rode I faced a headwind that really slowed down my average speed.
My motivation to ride longer and harder was gone. I was happy to get my 10 miles done. I did increase it to 13 miles a couple of times but that didn't last long.
I found that I could once again ride along MPB on the MUP. The construction was complete. The construction along SR56 continues.
I got 2 flats this month. The first came on a Friday. I had a spare tube but struggled to get the tire off. Once I got the tube changed, I could not get the tire back on. I had to work so I couldn't spend too much time with it. My dad had a doctor's appointment so I had to call a work friend to pick me up. Ten days later, I got another flat. But I didn't have a spare tube. I called dad to get me. I am not used to having flats. I never had this many. I will have to get used to changing the flats or get tougher tires.
I finished the month with 166 miles. I did lose over 8 pounds but gained a few back in the last week. (Stress induced chocolate consumption.) Net weight loss 4 pounds.
