Goal: More base miles - met
Lesson: Patience pays.
Strava says I did 22.6 at 14.5 mph, which is a step in the right direction. The quality of base miles is improving, actually faster than I'd thought. I'm able to stay larger gears for longer pulls, and into headwinds.
I did a run/ride thing yesterday for nearly an hour, not sure how to make Strava work for those, but those have been great for conditioning.
Things have changed in my personal life, I'm finding myself less pulled in multiple directions, less distracted, and with more time to ride. There is more peace and motivation now, it's been awesome.
