2367km for me for the first half of the year. Fell away a bit in June, due to illness (manflu!) and a right knee that was getting sorer and sorer. Gave myself the entire 2nd half of June off to let the knee settle down a bit.

After much consternation, I switched back from my DHB shoes (that I got a couple of months ago) to my old Diadoras (and their soles that have been superglued back together!) - and its been like magic. I just couldn't get the cleats back far enough on the DHBs (which were great shoes otherwise), and the knee felt 100% more stable and rock-solid back in my old shoes.

Feeling great getting back into it with a much better knee, so aiming for a 3000km 2nd half of the year. Now biggest issue is finding a replacement shoe as I know these Diadoras won't last. Just ordered a pair of Shimano RC7's, mainly based on the huge cleat position range they have, so fingers crossed they work out... :-)

So into the second half of 2018 now. The crash which resulted in a fracture to my pelvis at the start of April didn’t end up costing me much as 5 days after the incident, and much to my surprise I found that although I couldn’t walk, I could ride on the trainer without a problem. So 5 weeks of Zwift and I didn’t miss a beat. Enjoying some nice rides out on the cold winter Tassie roads at the moment. On track and getting stronger for a crack at a few road events later in the year.

I need a big second half but should still make it to 10.5k this year. Lots of work to do though.

I know that feeling, I wear S-Works shoes and have orthotics for them custom made. I hope they never change the basic design of them - those shoes are perfect. Hopefully you'll get no troubles further.

Before this, I have always thought people were being a bit overly-sensitive about problems swapping between shoes. Feel a bit silly now! Wish my Diadora model was still in production, but these shoes are 5+ years old almost (I have very much gotten my money's worth!)...

Had a bit of a hiccup on the trail this afternoon.

Image

It grumbled it's way thru a shift about 100m before I felt something brush my leg. Seems the securing bolt fell out. Explained the less than stellar shifting from the last week or so.

And as Murphy would have it I didn't have any Allen keys with me to raid a bottle cage bolt so I MacGuyvered it back together to get back to the car. Had a strategically placed stick holding it up from underneath and a rubber band from my Garmin mount (not pictured) holding it in at the top for the slow(er) ride back.

Half way there as of yesterday, mid July, not bad considering a lot of leave this year.

Been secretly aiming at 6K for some months, and at 3300 to date feel reasonably confident that I'll get there. It will take me about the same time as some will get beyond 10K, but there you go. Intensity is on the up, and I'll really come out snarling when this feckin northerly stops.

Been a very slow July for me so far, on holidays so no rides to work and just lost a bit of mojo due to the poor Melbourne weather. But still sticking to a few lower k's but high intensity MTB rides.
lucky I was so far ahead, so still in not bad shape overall.

I've done about 7,820km so far this year, with 90,300m climbed (I have a moderately hilly commute). My commuting kms will be 0 next month, though, as I'm leaving this cyclist-hating country for a month, to go cycling up many cols in the Pyrénées.

Have fun over there. I'll be back from the Alps by the time you are over there.

I haven't ridden in France before. But if they are as nice as the Italians are around riders, I'll probably be sad to come back home.

They are as nice, or at least that's my experience. I did 1.5 weeks cycling in France last year, and 1 week the year before, and never any problems with motorists.

A much better month for me in July, and I'm feeling much better! Even though I missed a week off the bike due to an impromptu family holiday, still clocked up 457km. With some regular running in there, did 25 hours total across 28 activities. Legs are coming along well, so another month of consistent riding should see me humming along nicely... :-)

Cracked 8k this evening with 74klm of up. Best ratio I have ever had with some hilly rides planned. Last week I corrected the elevation on every ride this year and picked up a bit over 2klm of up. Damn Garmin... Ha ha

I'm doing the same rides as previous years. My climbing percentage is lower than when I had my edge 510 (I now have a 1000). I cbf'd going through on every ride. My climbing percentage is around 1.2% at the moment where it was close to 1.5% with the edge 510

Why is it that every Garmin Edge model gives different ascent results? :roll: Previously, I've used the 705, 800 and the 820, and they're all different in their ascent totals.

Because they all use changes in barometric pressure. So sensor placement changes and device design can change what is and isn't detected
