Despite my September projection, I actually did manage 500+ miles, albeit barely. El Nino has given Southern California some excitement but up here, the rains have been really really weak.

The drop in average speed is a bit distressing. I expect some drop in the off season but this seems early and steep. Must be the even commutes are getting very slow because morning commutes and Sunday are always faster than 10.9 Mph.

There really ought to be real rain in November so that should cut into my skating. I have some good hikes coming up. The lack of any in October was a bit annoying but hard to avoid given the interference from A2A and Halloween.

Weather and the Thanksgiving holiday took a bite out of my skating in November. I clawed back a bit of that with twice as much hiking as normal. The final tally is quite respectable albeit well off peak season.

The increase in average speed is as mysterious and last month's decline. Make no mistake. I'm been moving rather slow this month. A couple of damp skates along with cold air will do that. Best guess is that fewer social skates meant fewer very slow miles to bring down the total.

No bike rides this month but it looks like that will start this week. Thursday looks hopelessly raining to skate to work. I hope my tires are OK. I haven't been on the bike in several months.
