To reach 6000 miles for the year, I need 450 miles for December. That is not as tall an order as the 500 miles I projected last month but December is usually (always?) under 400 miles.
Never say never. Onward to a record breaking December:

December is normally wet. December 2017 was nearly bone dry. The only rain was a brief shower early one Thursday morning. The result: deep concern that the drought had returned and skate mileage that rivals mid-summer.

The previous December record, 2016, was swept away by over 100 miles.

Speed held surprisingly steady. In December, if it doesn't rain, it gets cold. It felt slow.

Needless to say, I met my annual goal but that is the subject for another post in another thread.

Dang! SO close to a 500 mile skate month! I nearly got 400 in June this year.

Shoot. We had so much rain in December. However, November was dry so I kept my totals for the year up by skating before and after work until darkness finally killed evenings.

Hey My Friend,

I moved from Strava to Endomondo. So much better community for skaters of all kinds. My location there is found here:

https://www.endomondo.com/profile/35663751

My user name is Joey Brooks.

I will still keep up with Strava for a short while but don't feel like doing both.

If you have an active Endomondo account, please supply the link to me.

Yes...I will still post here as long as you do!

Cheers.

December and January were awful for skating. Tons of rain in December derailed me, and all of the stuff I put off doing in December to break 3000 miles, using every good weather day, has caught up with me in January.


Orange represents miles on my longboards/skateboards and magenta represents skating on quads and inline skates.

February starts off with Jury duty. Can't catch a break.

I did a bit a double take when I saw that 500 miles for January. I really wasn't trying. It did rain, although not as much as need and I deliberately cut back.

I think what pushed up the numbers is an unusual amount of hiking and some bonus bike rides just to run errands.

This year, I'm cutting back my cycling commutes from 3-4 week to just two. The should reduce the numbers but I am also finding that makes them more consistent. I can choose which days I skate based on the weather and other concerns so even though it did rain, I got in all the skate commutes I had intended.

February should be good too. The rain has stopped again and it is crazy warm for a "winter" month.
