I have biked almost 45 miles over the last two days, and I actually feel pretty good. I’m hoping to do a ride tomorrow, even if it’s short.

I feel like I’ve broken into the summer session of riding, where I’m pushing myself pretty hard daily. Building up to this since April has played a huge role. I’ve basically added 50 miles a month after doing about 100 in April. Not too shabby. I may reach 200 for June, barring any physical setback. Pushing for 250 for July might be a challenge, but why the hell not?

It’s a little depressing that I’m basically back where I started last summer, but it’s something I brought upon myself. Something tells me that this time it’s a bit different. I’m hoping to see results sooner than later.
