I was determined to ride at least 5 days this week. 

Monday
71° wind 7 NNE
Cooler but windy. I just couldn't get the energy to ride any faster. 
Summer school started today so I saw a few buses. Lots of broken glass on Mansfield just before the new school. 
10 miles 14.07 mph

 construction continues. crews leave the barrels in the bike lane instead of moving them to the shoulder.

Tuesday
71° wind 5 NE
Pumped up the tires which may have helped some. Felt a little stronger but wind kept my speed down. Laying sod on Beardsley so much of the road blocked with no one directing traffic. 
10 miles 14.29 mph

 blue skies are boring.

Wednesday
71° wind 4 NE
Tired. Wasn't paying attention and had to stop quickly for school bus at Vermillion. Watering new sod on Beardsley, had to ride in car lane. Wind was a little bother but I pushed through. 
After my stop at SR56, my legs were done. It took everything to maintain my speed. 
10 miles 14.3 mph

Thursday
76° 77% humidity wind 3 ESE
Muggy. Watering new sod on Beardsley, had to ride in car lane. 
Wind hit me when I turned around on WRB. I was up to 14.7. Lost some on the way back because of wind. 
10 miles 14.58 mph

Friday
Lazy and tired. I didn't ride. 

Saturday
77° humidity 70% wind 4 SSE
As usual, I warmed up and rode hard. I was at 14 mph by the time I got to Oldwoods. I was up to 14.8 when I turned at WRB. The wind was annoying. When I stopped to rest, I didn't realize I hit lap instead of pause. My average dropped to 13.7. I rode hard to bring it back up to 14.04 even though my computer said 14.7. 
10 miles. 14.7 mph

A decent week. I realized that 50 miles is a good average for me. I just don’t have the time nor drive to ride more.

This week 50.4 miles
This year 1227 miles
