Mileage Recap ~ 17 Nov – Dec 14

It’s hard to believe it’s been about a month since I did a mileage recap!  Time just seems to be getting away from me.  Our weather here in the Midwest hasn’t been helping either.  One day cold another day in the 60s.  I will say the 60 degree days are lovely.  November was a low mileage month for me but I hope to make a final push in December to “recover” some of those miles.  I was able to get some running in but have been focusing more on my cycling.  I did get a nice walk in on Thanksgiving.  It snowed!  I don’t know but it seems sort of strange to have snow on Thanksgiving.  Here are some pictures from my walk.

Since the weather change I went to one of our local cycle shops and purchased some long riding pants and gloves.  Needless to say they came in handy (no pun intended) for last weeks ride.  It was the first time I went out in 30 degree weather.  My ride was around 18 miles and about 3/4 into the ride I really began to feel it in my exposed areas and uh…feet.  Note to self ~ when on a bike you are moving faster therefore, weather temps are exemplified much different from running.  My toes were so frozen I could barely feel them walking into the house.  Yes I know another lesson learned.

I know this is the season to be thankful and reflect.  I hope everyone is having a joyous and peaceful holiday season.  This year has been a good year.  I’m thankful that I can keep going.  I picked up 56.49 miles this go round with 9,559.46 thankfully remaining.  Never.Give.Up.  Happy miles to you.

  1. Nice post.
    Once you figure out the clothing, winter cycling can actually be enjoyable. I find if my head, hands and feet are warm I am fine. I sometimes (like this morning) will wear a balaclava, toque, 2 pair of gloves, wool socks and booties. Layering is the key.
    And, happy miles to you as well.
