Automatic Payments and Annoyances

I love our credit union. I really love them. Their website is amazing and the people are nothing but friendly. Unfortunately, for the second month in a row, we weren't able to cancel one of those auto bill payer transactions.

It's not that big of deal, but it really irritates me when something so simple becomes such a headache. So, tonight, once again, I have unscheduled my auto bill payer and we will set a reminder to check it ahead of time next month.

Thank goodness for the calendar function on the Evo, it will make tracking this much easier!

The Long Ride

I didn't get a chance to write this over the weekend, but I had an amazing ride on Saturday. I made the longest distance I've ridden thus far, coming in just under 30 miles for the day.

It was beautiful and I even stopped along the way to enjoy it. Sure, there were times that the legs burned - like going up to Lord Hill Farms, and times that I had no clue where I was - the Machias Trailhead... But overall it was wonderful.

Now to land a trailer so Evie and I can go out and leave Mom at home to relax a bit.

Wet Weather, Cold Mornings...

This morning was a tough one to get moving for. The weather was back to cold and wet after the amazing day we had on Wednesday, and I've lost a bit of motivation for riding at the second.

I don't know what it was exactly, but it might have had something to do with being home early yesterday and having some extra time with Evie and Ara. I think I miss that hour or so that I miss when I ride.

So, with that said, I am altering my plan for training by saving longer rides for the weekends and increasing the pace of my afternoon rides. If I need 15 miles a day in the afternoon, then I need to average 15 MPH.

I'm going to ride harder for shorter times and hope it works. If not, there's still plenty of time... or at least 2 months until I have to go 100 miles a day... Wow... 2 months...
