OK, it's been a little slow in this forum recently, so I'll share this summer's cycling goal: more commutes. The goal is 80 this year. I live about 7.5 miles away from where I work, so it's a nice distance to ride, 22 - 28 minutes, depending on weather, wind (beastly this week) and general inclination to push myself. I'm up in the Northeast, which limits my season, as I really prefer not to ride at night (narrow back roads where people drive too fast, no thanks), and usually don't ride if there >30% chance of rain (not great for the bike). Realistically speaking, my commuting season goes from mid-March through mid-October, about 7 months. Over the past 7 years, I've averaged ~55/year, with a high of 69 (yes, I am geeky enough to keep a spreadsheet logging my rides). A jump to 80 seems do-able, but I'll need to stretch a bit (80 - 55 = 25, 25/7 months ~= 3.5 more commutes per month, a little under 1/week). Overall that's 11 or 12 commutes/month, ~= 3.5/week. So far, the weather gods have been smiling -- we've had some stretches of unseasonably warm weather, and it's been pretty dry, so even when it's been cold in the mornings (32F is my lower limit) it's been OK. I am at 18 now, starting from March 19. Judging from previous years, I am pretty far ahead of my usual pace, so so far so good. If we get a few stretches of rain, I could get knocked back pretty quickly, so we'll see. Anyone else have any summer goals, cycling or otherwise?
Is anyone using Evernote to track their workouts? I'm specifically referring to lifting weights. I have always used a small notebook and pen for this, but I'm trying to go paperless, so I'm considering using EN on my phone instead. Would be interested in people's experiences with this. Do you use a stylus? Some sort of workout template note? Do you feed the data into a spreadsheet for tracking over time?
I would like to keep track of my exercise programs, DVDS that I do on a daily basis, I'd like to track how I feel, what I felt needs improvement, moods Then I would like to see them in a month's view to see which DVDs I used the most and how I felt using it. any way to do something like this?
