Well for the last 2 days I been doing alot of sitting, I have not gotten any biking in at all, and right now my legs are killing me for it. You would think that not biking would not cause pain, but for me for some stupid reason, it hurts when I don’t bike.

I just entered the last 31.09 miles from my bike computer up here so my total miles for this year are 1045.10 for the year, so I guess for next year my goal should be 1200 miles.

Well since the daylight change, and that the sun is setting so close to 5, and that it is getting colder, I think the biking season is over for me. I will probably just walk to work for the winter. I will put the last of my miles up later.

Well as of Friday (Sep 8) I went past 900 miles on my way to the goal of 1000 miles biked this year. I am wondering something when I hit the 1K mark should I just put “1000 miles goal reached” or should I just keep accumulating the numbers over 1000.
