Walter texted me while we were on vacation (which you can read more about here) and asked about a Saturday ride. I told him I couldn't because we'd be on our way home from Branson, but that Sunday would be OK. What better way to try to get myself back in the groove!
Woke up at 6:30 this morning and it was only 64°. Holy cow! After all the triple digit heat, a cool front had moved through and had me trying to decide what to wear. I went with a long sleeve tee under my short sleeve jersey and shorts on the bottom. It wasn't really necessary, but I wasn't particularly hot either. We headed out at 7 AM and repeated nearly the same ride as last week - touring around Jefferson City for 22.3 miles. We hit some stoplights and paused a couple times to grab a drink. With all the hills, our speed wasn't stellar (though I broke the speed limit on the last screaming downhill) . I struggled more than I should have the first half, but felt better the back half.
Not much planned for the rest of the day. Should try to get a little work done, but a nap sounds good too.
