Saturday Swift Stroll to Starbucks

Opted for a leisurely pace today, seeing as it is Saturday, a beautiful morning, and a meetup w/a buddy for some coffee at a local Starbucks alongside the river. Hence the craptastic stats this morning, which is absolutely okay every now and again.

Interestingly, I also noticed if I drink a glass or two of wine the night before, my riding power is impacted. This morning I had less endurance and considerably lower power than throughout the week. It worked out fine, though, because of the leisurely stroll this morning.

Maybe tomorrow I will consider upping the ante, doing a full 50k, and pushing the limits of my old ass body!

Whirlwind Wednesday Morning Sweating

Since I failed to ride yesterday due to being abnormally tired, this morning I woke immediately at 4am and was bright eyed and bushy tailed.

The temperature this morning was perfect, with little to no noticeable humidity, and an ever so slight yet comforting breeze.
