Prelude to Hell

Called this ride “prelude to hell” simply because today is going to be a hellaciously busy work day. I am basically on non-stop calls from 11am through to 9pm, with nary a break even to hit the bathroom. So I wanted to get some kilometers logged and fresh air consumed on this lovely Thursday morning before an early call, prior to to aptly named hell day kicking off.

Felt noticeably sluggish today. Just could not get in the groove, and the analysis stats demonstrate my utter lack of prowess on the tarmac today. I guess you cannot win them all right? Chalk it up to another late work night, followed by a very early morning call, resulting in shit for sleep. So I guess limited recovery time kinda works as a disadvantage today.

The good news is the weather is somewhat nice today. Blue skies abound, nice breeze, but sticky humidity. We are definitely approaching the dreaded Japanese summer!

But I quickly brushed that nonsense aside and commenced my pre-ride ritual.

Thursday Morning Wet & Dirty Quickie

aining most of Wednesday, and throughout part of the late night, thus getting out on the tarmac was a gamble. Luckily it turned out the rain had stopped some hours ago, although death was looming above. I woke up at 5am with the intent to leave at 7am after an early morning weekly leadership meeting, which got suddenly cancelled 15 minute prior to game time. This was great news because it allowed me to sneak in a few extra kilometers, so I hopped on the Red Chameleon and headed out an hour earlier than expected.
