and blows and blows and blows…the wind, that is. Sometimes it even manages to change direction in tune with your ride, because Mother Nature says there’s no such thing as too much headwind.
When I woke up this morning, I knew the weather would be different than the last 2 months, because the sky was clear and the sun was out. We’ve had weeks and weeks and weeks of cold cloudy/foggy mornings with no sunlight till nearly lunch. Sweet! I thought, we’ll have some warmth on this ride. What I didn’t expect was that we’d also have this new north wind as we headed south, before the shift to our normal south wind as we headed north. Nearly 56 miles of headwind is bound to annoy even the most optimistic person, unless she is my coach in which case she’s delighted I got a good tough day out there. Still, at least I had wonderful companions (who let me hang on their wheel when I was supposed to be riding easy in between intervals) and beautiful scenery!
And so ends another big week, with one more to go before a rest week!
