The forecast for this week sucks. Rain almost every day. After not riding from Thursday last week through Monday this week I knew there was trouble. My days were like this:
Friday: a whole lot of nothing
Saturday: Soccer, cold soccer in the am followed by working on school. Also watched three movies....Lovely Bones, The fourth kind, and Brothers.
Sunday: Mother's day. Sat on my ass watching a movie and eating while working on school.
Monday: worked then finished project for school.
So when Tuesday rolled around I needed to ride. Not only for my mental wellness, but because of all the junk I ate over the weekend. It rained all day and the weather was calling for rain every day until Thursday....so I got loaded up and headed out. I felt pretty good during the first part of the ride....but then the cool wet began to set in and I could feel myself slowing down. It might have been all the extra clothes but I was dead at the end of the ride. 18 miles in the rain was way better than riding on a stationary trainer......after all ......its May.....
