Slowly and steadily, progress is creeping in. The weight is down 12lbs from Thanksgiving. I've plateaued a bit; that's fine. The mileage is creeping up. That's really fine.
Yesterday Dave and I met for a morning of rolling, adding up to 43 miles by the end of the day. We visited Iroquois, Eva Bandman Cyclocross Park, Smokey Beans Coffee House in Old Louisville and a few hills to climb on the way home. It was great to take a wandering long day after a series of short "training rides".

|They're supposed to use this run up in a couple weeks. I'm a fan of the island.|
This afternoon, though, things are busy and there is a family schedule to follow, so a "training" ride was in order, although I didn't push too much. A big teensF cold front is moving in, so I took advantage of the last of the almost warm-ish weather available, if 38F and windy is warm. Off and on I wondered whether I should stretch out for more miles or more tempo or more hills, but instead I told myself, "Heck No!". It was a nice one hour
I hope you got out too.
