I think the brain weasels are part of the reason I prefer loop rides: if I'm just doing an out-and-back, I can turn around anywhere and so get tempted to quit early. But if I'm doing a loop, I don't even stop to consider that I could just turn it into an out-and-back!

I almost always am riding TO somewhere, so I start with a particular route in mind. I love MISSG's "brain weasels" - I think that applies to me too.

I love my odometer too! Mine was around 12 bucks and wasn't even the cheapest one they had. I think I ride longer with it, especially if I'm exploring new territory. I love seeing my miles rack up. :) I do have a regular mapped out route though but when I get tired of the scenery I use my odometer to make sure I don't get too far away from my car.

An odometer is definitely worth the investment. I love mine.

I think I definitely ride longer if I have a destination or at least a route in mind. I like a goal, and otherwise when I get a bit tired my brain weasels start telling me to turn around and head back.

I think I need to map out a route for longer days. I can do 8-10 miles without a route but it is hard to guess much farther than that. I need to get an odometer too. Currently I us my phone ap "RunKeeper" but don't look at it much so the battery lasts longer.

1st goal 255# MET 2/20/12 (Update: Met this goal but now have gained the weight back so it is now a goal once again)
2nd goal 205#
3rd goal 155#

it all depends on what is happening with my day. what the heat is like and how much time i have available. i have a couple of set routes for my short days and a couple of routes for my long days.

Don't complain about the results you didn't get for the fitness you didn't do!
