|Great Blue Heron|
After breakfast and a quick run to a bike sale in the alley behind some guy's house (still no mountain bike), I finally pulled on the shorts and jersey to set off. Hubby had agreed to meet me up at the lake and ride around it with me, so I started off only to find myself heading straight into a stiff wind. With the cooler temps came the wind, and I felt like I was right back in March when I was prepping for BTUSFMS. Every day I fought the wind. Looking at my rides from March and April, my average speeds were in the 14's and 15's. Today, despite the headwind, I averaged 16.4. Not gonna lie--I'm happy with that.
Riding around the lake with Hubby, we went slow and easy. No reason to hurry on such a beautiful day. At the east side of the lake, we saw several Great Blue Herons, beautiful and graceful creatures. Once home, I downed a glass of cold chocolate milk, thinking yeah, today is a perfect day.
