I went out towards BBD to ride a short loop. I had to stop at SPES because of the crossing guards. I should have stayed home. I got a flat on SR56 near Mansfield. I thought walking home would be quicker. I was wrong. It took me 45 minutes to walk 2.5 miles. And then FitBit said I had only walked 1.9 miles.
I was almost at CLR and a truck stopped, the driver asked if I wanted a ride home. I declined even though my ankle really hurt.
4.6 miles 13.2 mph

Thursday
70° wind 3 ENE
I was lazy and thought to just ride the 820. I couldn't get the iPhone case clicked on and decided to just change the tire. It only took me twenty minutes. I then decided to installed my new saddle and bag. That took another 10 minutes.
It was windier when I finally started at 10:05. The saddle felt good for the first couple of miles. I could start to feel it in my bum. But my soft parts felt fine. I think I had it today forward. I felt heavy on my hands.
The wind helped my on SR56 but then I turned on WRB and slowed down from 13.9.
When I stopped at SR56, Dark Sky said it was 77° and with 2mph wind. That is just plain wrong. The Verizon flags don't waiver with 2mph winds.
10 miles 13.6mph

Friday
65° wind 3 NE
I moved the seat back a bit. It felt better on my hands.
Good ride. Light wind didn't bother me.
Cars turning left from Mansfield to SR56 looked like they weren't going to stop. Ugh.
0 miles 14 mph

 

Saturday
71° wind 3 NE
My bum is a bit sore from the new saddle. I tried to ride hard but my legs weren't cooperating.
I glanced away and ran over a wood spike. It really jolted me and everything tingled.
I hit pause twice so I wasn't really paused and my pace went down from 13.8 to 12.9 when I stopped at SR56. My bike computer said I finished at 13.9 but Wahoo only recorded 13.3. Oh well.
10 miles 13.3 mph
