Morning Meditative Ride

Today was a quick ride on a beautiful yet slightly humid Thursday morning. I basically had utter shit for sleep due to late night meeting with Europe followed by a very early morning Asia-Pacific meeting. Despite the lack of rest, my legs somehow felt fine.

Looks like rain all day tomorrow so will potentially hit the bike shop in the afternoon to switch out a few things, notably the Turbo Cotton 26c’s for Conti GP 5000 32c’s. Since I hit some gravel spots on the ride I prefer the “stability” the wider tires offer.

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

The lovely climate helped increase my motivation to start the week off on the right food - no pun intended - with a metric half century, with one objective in mind: hit my weekly goal of 180k since I missed it the previous two.
