Well done, Joey! And that *January*, what the heck? Or is January generally a good month in New Orleans? Here, it is generally cold and rainy ; the most difficult month to get in the miles.

It might have been 200! Where you doing downhill or x-country?

Whoohoo! First month worth reporting since the crash in September. 175.81 miles is unimpressive by my historic standard but it stomps all over the three months that preceded. And most of those miles are SKATING!

I finished 2019 with a slow and stiff 1.25 mile roll around the block. I followed up four days later with a more steady 7 miler. Eight days later, I made it out to Canada Road for 21 miles. The Wednesday that followed was my return to the Wednesday Night Skate. Tomorrow I intend a full 44 mile Canada Road workout.

Back stiffness and strain is still a problem. Not only does it make for a more difficult and less comfortable workout, it reduces my stability. At this point in my recovery, I can not afford to fall. With practice and physical therapy, this problem is subsiding but I'm not done yet. I have resumed my Sunday workouts and the Wednesday Night Skate but I need to be solid before I mix with cars in my commute or the terrain and crowd variability of the San Francisco Friday Night Skate. For the latter, my goal is Valentine's Day. We'll see.

YAY!

Great to have you back!

I have settled into a new routine mostly thanks to my new job (May 2019) that is quite demanding physically, AND starts at 7a.m. which robs me of the coolest 3 morning hours. So....

I have pledged 5 miles per day when I skate. I will commute rain or shine - except lightning and flooded roads. It will be a rare day when i skate much more than a 1/2 marathon. This pledge got me 250 miles last month which is good enough. My true goal is to go low and steady avoiding all overuse injuries in theory. My basic commute gets me those 5 miles. More is gravy. On the rare occasion I get to the local Rail-Trail (50 miles away by car) i intend to limit my miles to a full marathon.

Sometimes Less is More. That's what I am shooting for this year. Today I skated my 29th consecutive day. No health issues.
