I had less miles in June than I did in May and I had hoped to make it up this month. I've had some issues with my back and sciatica though so I only have 82 miles so far. It's so frustrating when your hurt and have to take a break! I finally got back out yesterday after nearly two weeks. I've been going to physical therapy and have started pilates though. I'm afraid I'm not going to make my mileage goal I set for this year.
My July goals are to get out on my bike 4-5 times a week, weather permitting, and ride at least 200 miles throughout the month. I want to get up to riding 50 miles a day, but that involves doing two and a half loops on the bike path, which might get boring [I wish they'd finish building it so it extended the 50 miles they have planned!]. Also to stock up on spare tubes, I can never have enough!
Challenge yourself every day to do better and be better.
I did badly in June too, but for opposite reasons. It hasn't stopped raining all month. At the beginning of the month my town had quite bad floods, and there's still debris on the cycle trails from that.
My goal for July is to try and ride to work at least half the time, even if it's raining. It's not many miles, but when I have the bike out I am more likely to add some extra loops on.

I must admit, I did really lousy for June. No excuses, just didn't do what I had wanted to. July is not starting well, either. My diverticulitis has flared up, meds are not working as well has they have in the past, and I'm just not myself yet. Perhaps next week will be cooler and I'll feel better.
For July I would love to ride 500 miles, but with temps hovering in the triple digits, that ain't gonna happen. So I will set a goal of strength training 4 days a week, that I can do inside.
