Windy and warm. 
Still learning how to use my Apple Watch. I didn't know that it had to be turned on. I missed the first 5 minutes. Oops. 
Rode up to Union Park and tried some new roads. 
I was close to 13 miles so I rode down Eagle Station, Forest Glen and Allegro to make the miles.

 There is almost always two or people standing around talking. It seems like a good meeting place.

Friday
75° humidity 92% wind 16 NW
Hurricane Matthew brought a tropical storm to our area. 
Normally I would stay home with these winds. But I am on such a streak that I hated having an empty square. Also, Ryan went out so I felt I had to go.
I went out CLR to BBD. Windy. 
Headwind on BBD was really bad. The wind was with me on SR56. 
I went to Hueland Pond. It got windy again as the road turned west. 
Tailwind along Mansfield let me go 17 mph and not feel any wind on my face. 
8.08 miles 13.17 mph (13.4)

I went out to BBD to SR56. The tailwind was nice on SR56 but didn't help on MPB. 
I rode out to Union Park. Montgomery Bell south of Goddard is all construction zone. 
The ride back was tough. The wind picked up and it was all headwind. I went from 14.2 to 13.7.
