    alright 8.4 mi 00:24 20.9mph pace

    At least I rode.

  2. VELO
    alright 8 mi 00:24 20.0mph pace

    Not a heroic effort, but at least it was an effort.

  3. Things fell apart. I guess the good news is that at the end of January, I'd done 175.3 miles, better than the ~171 I need to average each month to hit my goal by year's end. The bad new... read more

  4. VELO
    great 13 mi 00:37 21.0mph pace

    New video playing device (I've tried a couple that performed poorly), and thus a new motivation/distraction while riding. And it was a good ride.

  5. VELO
    blah 5.1 mi 00:14:33 21.0mph pace

    Well, that was pathetic. ^^;

  6. I've missed an entire week of riding. It's been a particularly rough week; we've had arctic weather, with every night dropping well below 0°F. To keep my car start-able, I've ... read more

  7. VELO
    alright Checkpoint 11.2 mi 00:33 20.5mph pace

    Second half of my Yatsuhiro-to-Kumamoto leg. A bit tired, and I guess it showed.

  8. VELO
    good 11.2 mi 00:32 21.2mph pace

    First half of my Yatsuhiro-to-Kumamoto leg. I felt like ending the ride early a few times, but lasted long enough to hit my stride during an uptempo (100+ bpm) song.

  9. VELO
    great Checkpoint 14.8 mi 00:42 21.0mph pace

    As planned, a distance record AND a checkpoint, finishing my third leg of 50, from Kagoshima to Yatsushiro -- one of the longest legs in the first half of my virtual ride across Japan.

  10. I finally found my software for editing Web pages, so I've posted a 2013 version of my virtual-ride-across-Japan project at http://moonatnoon.com/projects/bike/japan-2013.html (also linked in ... read more

  11. VELO
    great 9.4 mi 00:24 23.4mph pace

    Ah... nothing like pushing yourself way too hard in a too-hot apartment and living through it. (^___^) Was going to ride 9.4 miles in 25 minutes, but the music was a little faster than that... EPI... read more

  12. VELO
    good 14.7 mi 00:42 21.1mph pace

    I did indeed get sick last week... and somehow I forgot to start riding again when I felt better. ^^; I definitely have some catching up to do, so I set a distance record today while distracted b... read more

  13. VELO
    alright 6 mi 00:17 21.1mph pace

    I think I finally caught the creeping-crud going around at work. I had hoped to ride 12 miles today, but at 5 miles, I was coughing up stuff... and worse, I couldn't ride hard enough to get a... read more

  14. VELO
    tired 6 mi 00:17 21.3mph pace

    Was planning on riding 14 miles, but was feeling really weak... so I thought I'd settle for 8.9 (was going to ride this leg as five 14s and an 8.9)... but only made it 6 miles before I felt li... read more

  15. VELO
    good 14 mi 00:38 21.9mph pace

    Didn't quite have the lasting power I had in my last ride... was doing 1-minute flat-out intervals staggered with 1-minute recovery, and around 10 miles, my flat-outs just went... flat. o_o

  16. I was watching an old Sufferfest video while riding today, and it features lots of footage of big international bike races. I'm not really familiar with bike racing outside of the footage I&#... read more

  17. VELO
    great 14 mi 00:38 22.2mph pace

    Starting the 78.9-mile leg from Kagoshima to Yatsushiro, which I'll probably do in six rides. Something weird happened, and my speed kept building even as I could feel my energy draining. My... read more

  18. VELO
    great Checkpoint 14.6 mi 00:41 21.2mph pace

    Rode the second half of the leg from Ibusuki to Kagoshima. Ended up with a better pace than yesterday, but I can already feel a bit sore right after getting off the bike. Ow ow ow... But still, ... read more

  19. VELO
    great 14.6 mi 00:42 20.8mph pace

    The second leg of my trip is 29.2 miles; I either had to split it into two very long rides, cut it into three very short rides, or not end a ride at the checkpoint. I did the first option... and s... read more

  20. VELO
    great Checkpoint 13.2 mi 00:38 21.0mph pace

    My second day into the virtual ride, and I've arrived at the first stop of 50, Ibusuki. It's funny... looking back at my 2009 attempt, it took me six days to ride the same distance. It ... read more
