    Bike Log

    I was thinking it might be a good idea to start a bike log that everyone in here could use to log their daily rides. I figure this way we can compare what other on here are doing and perhaps push each other a bit. I'll start:

    Wednesday: appox 9.5 miles, avg speed 16 mph
    Thursday: approx 9.5 miles, avg speed 17 mph
    Saturday: approx 9.5 miles, avg speed 16.5 mph

    The above three were all the same route, which for the most part is flat, some small climbs.

    Sunday 31 miles, 16.5 mph. for the most part flat. Avg. speed was probably closer to 17 mph, but checked out a path in a park, about 4 miles. This slowed me down due to the fact that there were a lot of pedestians.

    Pretty impressive. Was this a special trip or just daily runs around the house? What location?

    The Trek Across Maine - for the American Lung Association
    It's a grueling ride, but absolutely beautiful! It was well worth the sore butt and stiff legs..and now I know my body is capable of enduring immense pain!

    Today, since I'm logging here, decided to increase my 9.5 miles to 14.06, that's all I can do before work. Some small hills and an avg. speed of 16.5.

    Edit: Got to try my new bike shoes on this ride. Fit nice, work nice, but gotta say, this is the first time I ever purchased shoes with holes in the soles.

    I did 60 miles yesterday after work... unfortunately the last 15 were insanely painful. I should have checked the air quality maps before I left, but I had my old childhood asmtha coming back at me to the point where I could only breathe in about a quarter of my lung capacity without going into a coughing fit. That sucked. I'll be calling my Doc today I think.

    Seems to be high levels of ozone that sets it off, and a fairly high exposure to it, such as breathing heavily for long periods of time... like one would on a bike ride.

    Well that blows. Hope everything works out for you and you get it taken care of.

    Yeah, I saved a copy of the air quality map of NOAA's website from yesterday. I'll put it up when I get home. The air quality really was terrible, we were up near 100-120 ppb of ozone yesterday when I went out, which is def. in the high range of things-

    Current air quality map for comparison.
