had to get out early this morning. storms are threatening. there's a big mass of greens and yellows and reds on radar south and a little east of us. i don't like riding under skies that show yellow or red on radar. i'm afraid of melting.
today i took it fairly easy, cranking out miles more than anything. my pace and effort were moderate - not recovery really, but not a hard effort either. i tested my chain adjustments and things seem to be kosher again as far as standing and accelerating. hope that holds true when i ride with the wichita group again next tuesday.
picked up the pace ever so slightly on the way back. the east wind helped just a tiny bit. didn't feel 100% - maybe 85% or 87% at the most. worked on stretching the crazy muscle that's been giving me trouble for weeks. still sore. it's got to get better eventually, right? (15.97 miles @ 16.6mph)
