Tuesday
65° humidity 92% wind 1N
Foggy but bright. I wore my sunglasses until they fogged up. 
It seems like I had to pedal harder for any speed. I forgot to check my tire pressure before I left and it had been awhile since I added any air. Then I turned onto Mansfield and could feel every pebble. I knew my tire was low. It continually lost air until I had to walk home from Allegro. I filled it when I got home and will see if it holds air or needs to be changed tomorrow.

Wednesday
Changed both tires. Found a small piece of wire in the back that caused the flat. I changed the front tire because it was wearing out. 

66° humidity 87% wind 3 SSW
Sunny. It took nearly an hour to change my tires. I am slow and cannot get the tires on and off easily
Felt much faster but didn’t push it. 
Headwind along SR56 and Mansfield

Sunday
60° humidity 97% wind 1 SE
Too foggy and too dark. I still hadn’t put on my light and couldn’t see much. I had to take off my glasses. I should not have gone out Mansfield because there are no streetlights past Meadow Pointe. The MUP was even worse and I moved to SR56 as soon as I could. At least the bike lanes have a traffic line that has some reflection. I was tense and the Wahoo app picked up on it or was glitchy and showed an elevated heart rate.
