The post-rain weather today resulted in an exceptionally mild and exceedingly comfortable temperature this morning, almost to the point where I contemplated wearing a shirt with some sleeves. I quickly erased that nonsensical thought from my nonsensical brain and rushed out the door, only to find it was lightly drizzling. I walked down the steps to the street and pondered whether I should ride or just call it quits. The sky looked like hell was about to descend upon the city, so maybe a ride was not the wisest thing to do. But a wise man I am not, and I decided a ride, even a wet one, would be better than no ride at all.

Prelude to Hell
- June 10, 2021
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.
Fantastic Friday Flooding

Unfortunately for the second consecutive day, Tokyo is under attack from above. Wet warriors continue to descend upon the city, water purposely pounding the pavement, leaving no dry survivors in their wake.
Tango Tuesday Tanning
- June 15, 2021
Back in the saddle on Tuesday after taking a recovery day on Monday. Despite having a good nights sleep, even according to my Oura sleep tracker, I unfortunately felt sluggish during the first half of the ride but much better on the return. I still cannot put a finger on a specific reason for this behavior, but it is something happening rather frequently. Wonder what’s up?
