New. League. Record.

So, between all the bad weather early in the year, and my recent back problems, I'm about 130 miles behind last year's pace. Still, that has me just short of a thousand miles on the year, and way ahead of 2007, or for that matter, any other year besides '08.

I mentioned awhile back that I've been trying to ride harder to make up for the lower weekly distances. At the time I was quite proud of myself for having averaged 14 mph for a ride for the first time since since 1993. The best ride I had in '93 had averaged 14.5 mph. I finally managed to break that record last month with a 14.6 mph ride.

Tonight I did sixteen miles at 15.1 mph! Way to go leg muscles!

Of course, in the midst of my ride I was passed by a guy on road bike who went by me like he was Lance Armstrong. It's all a matter of perspective.
