October 2013 Mileage

October was a bit of a write-off, primarily due to having limited ride time during the weekends of the month with personal commitments. Average speed was 17.8mph (28.5km/h), which is a marginal improvement on the previous month and thankfully not too much of a drop off in fitness. It was actually the lowest mileage month I've recorded all year.

Year to date mileage is now 3,548 miles which puts me ahead of where I thought I'd be at this point in the year, annual target remaining at 4,000 miles.  I'm planning to get as many miles as possible in between now and the year end.  Heart rate was up for the month, primarily due to the windy conditions and having to put a bit more effort in to keep the average speed up.

Summary for October is, lower expected miles vs. plan and average speed still in good shape.
