Monday
78° humidity 94% wind 4 NE
Wasn't feeling it, late start. I chose to go out Mansfield and ride a short loop. My body just wasn't up for a workout. I kept trying to push but my legs gave out when I hit the wind on SR56. 
Construction had some of the path clear. The gates were opened inside the site and most of the cars parked half off the path. Though there is always one who feels they shouldn't have to park on the grass. Sigh. 
The guard at WES stopped a car for me to let me ride through. The guard at Wrencrest made me stop for two people. Ass. 
There was smoke in the air from brush clearing. 
Shaky all the way home. 
6 miles 13.6 mph

Tuesday
75° humidity 94% wind 5 NNE
Wind didn't bother me too much. Legs felt better. 
One loop. 
I noticed that Wiregrass Elementary is using the abbreviation WRES because Watergrass Elementary School is using WES. 
9.6 miles 14.13 mph

Wednesday
78° humidity 94% wind 6 SE
I felt good but not a lot of energy. Wind didn't help much though I did get up to 14 mph at about mile 6 and the same time my legs gave out. I could feel my insides melt. It took all I had to just to keep pedaling. I had nothing to push against the Headwind along Mansfield. 
9 miles 13.66 mph

Thursday
78° humidity 93% wind 2 SSE
Too warm. The wind felt stronger and was against me on SR56. 
I rode the MUP and was able to ride past the construction site without slowing down. 
Dirt haulers were driving through Hueland Pond and not stopping when they got to SR56. Luckily, I was far enough away not to be in their path. 
I couldn't get above 13.4 mph. 
9 miles 13.27 mph

 few cows bothered to look at me

Friday
75° humidity 95% wind 2 NE
Bike computer shows higher speed than Wahoo so I thought I was riding better. Took shortcut on Hueland Pond. 
Headwind along Mansfield slowed me down some. 
8.58 miles 13.84 mph

Saturday
78° humidity 95% wind 4 NNE
I had the time to ride longer but not the energy to ride a lot longer. I went out to Union Park and back. It gave me two extra miles. The wind was annoying. 
11 miles 13.49 miles

This week 53.5
