 I blame #hermine for the grey blocks this week

I blame #hermine for the grey blocks this week

Monday
78° humidity 93% wind 5 NE
I probably should have pumped up my tires. It was that and the wind that seemed to hold me back. Oh, and my mind was elsewhere. I was thinking about work and the moves that will have to be made. 
9.5 miles 13.73 mph

Tuesday
76° humidity 94% wind 4 ENE
Pumped up tires. Maybe it helped. I pushed it as much as I could. Wind was a problem. 
I rode the path along SR56. It has been repaired. Dirt hauler coming out of the The Ridge didn't stopped but I was prepared. Ass. 
Another project starting up just north of the mental health facility. Ugh. 
Headwind along Mansfield was bad but I kept up. 
9.08 miles 14.08 mph

Thursday
76° humidity 94% wind 10 ESE
Ugh. I almost didn't go looking at that wind. I pumped up the back tire. 
The wind was annoying but not too bad. The signs blocking the path on SR56 at MPB are gone. I didn't see if the ones at Mansfield are gone because I decided to try Hueland Pond. I assumed it would be empty because of #Hermine. I was right. There are no bike lanes but there are decent sidewalks on both sides. With the open field, it was very windy. I pushed but didn't think I would get to 14 mph. 
Headwind along Mansfield dropped my average as well. But I was surprised when I finished that Wahoo said my average was 14.01!
8.5 miles 14.01 mph

Saturday
76° humidity 95% wind 3 SSE
I changed my bike mirror. The old one was so pitted to be useless. 
I didn't have much time to ride. I chose to go out Mansfield and ride a loop. 
I went around Hueland Pond to SR56 back to Mansfield. Headwind along Mansfield was really strong. I didn't have the energy to push. 
6 miles 13.65 mph
