Late start but I couldn't skip a second day. 
Storm damage was not much. Sycamore leaves along Stetson. 
Broken glass on Beardsley east of Broughton. 
Traffic lights out at SR56 and Mansfield. Surprisingly easy to cross.

Wednesday
75° wind 1 E humidity 75%
I finally got out at a decent time. Pumped up my tires. 
Found I had no legs. It felt like a struggle the whole way. I kept losing speed and had to push myself. 
Headwind along Mansfield. 
Car turning left from Wrencrest very slowly. He came very close to me and I yelled "three feet" as he started to pass. I saw his window was down. He slowed down and I thought he might yell back. He didn't but he forced me to ride into the gutter. WTF. Asshole. He passed again and I saw he was old. Hell. 
I finally got up to 14 mph on CLR. I pushed it to keep it there. 
10 miles 13.99 mph

Thursday
74° humidity 76% wind 3 E
Foot was less sore. I was less tired. (I got 7 hours of sleep) I couldn't keep my mind engaged. 
Bike lane blocked by construction barrels at WRB. 
Headwind along Mansfield. 
Small, dead alligator on CLR east of Morningmist. That is the first time I ever saw an alligator as roadkill.

Saturday
75° humidity 77% wind 4 E
Late start but didn't want to ride against the wind on SR56 and didn't want to have to avoid broken glass on Kinnan. I went up to Oldwoods and turned around at Gwynhurst Blvd. Alligator still on CLR but now back to normal size with the bloat gone. Gross. 
8 miles 14.1 mph
