Gotta love a month that gives you 5 weekends and a brevet. There’s bound to be some statistical assistance from that sort of help.
Actually missed one weekend of riding - had a voice acting workshop - and then under-miled things the week before the brevet. Ended up riding only 14 days this month, but extended the average ride distance a bit. With today’s little loop, ended up at 504 miles for the month. Also got in a most excellent New Year’s Day hike, plus 6 yoga sessions (teacher was out for a week beginning of the month).
The yoga has been good - especially for what I’ve been calling “anti-cycling” movements. Things like arching your back, opening your chest, stretching your hamstrings and pinning back your shoulder blades have really contributed to much more comfort on the bicycle (and off as well.) I’ve been really lucky to find an excellent teacher, which makes a huge difference.
And, just not to miss the main point, it’s been a heckuva nice month for riding - got a chance to meet and ride with a few folks that I’d known only on the interwebs, plus enjoyed a nice loop with Gino and JimG, and had some truly grand days out. A fine start to the year.
