I was very lazy this week. I didn't want to ride in the cold and dark. 

Monday
Cold in the morning and dark. I rode with Andy after dinner. 
62° wind 7 NNW
Andy and I went out to SR56. We turned around and went into WRHS. We had to turn around because the back gate wasn't open. We will skip the shortcut this week during spring break. 
Someone has moved the barricades half off the walk to bikes can get by. Andy still rode in the street behind me.
6 miles 7.9 mph

Tuesday
No work. I took the boys to lunch and to get haircuts. Ryan pushed the car window down and it stayed down. Instead of riding, I walked home from the car repair shop. 

Wednesday
Cold again the morning. I rode with Andy after dinner. 
It was late so we only went up to Kinnan. The gate was broken so they removed it. There is no barrier now. 
Weather was nice. 78° wind 4 SE
4 miles 8 mph

Thursday
Lazy in the morning. 
The threat of rain kept us home. 

Friday
66° wind 9 SE
I started out slow but got faster and stronger. The wind hit me when I turned around on WRB. Then the rain hit before I got to the college. It was hard and heavy. I thought about waiting it out at the college but I was already soaked. I would just get cold. So I rode hard all the way home. 
Andy was waiting for me. 
10 miles 13.6 mph

Saturday
Rain, no ride.

 Only 2 days and twenty miles. This is the worst mileage since I started riding two years ago.

It was a pathetic week of bike miles. I am not in a good place right now. I have to remember that riding makes me feels much better and more able to handle to the day.
