Week 19

For the first time since early March, I had an utterly complete week in which I exceeded 100% of my chart (I’ve been riding Week 12 on that chart since rolling back).

This week was nice, but breezy. Although I did drive to work on three of the days, I still got more than all of my miles, especially with yesterday’s metric century. After crushing my best average speed on Thursday, I had hoped for a 30 kph (18.6 mph) average yesterday, but headwinds reminded me that I’m really kind of a wuss.

It does feel really nice to have mornings on which I can ride to work without my shell and heavy fleece tights. It feels doubly nice to have days where I’m not slogging home against a fierce headwind with an outside temperature of 59°F (15°C). Hopefully, this weather trend continues—minus the strong afternoon winds, of course.
