Another pretty good week of riding. I finished Coffeeneuring 2018 and got to 91 miles. I feel like my average speed has increased.

Beautiful day though breezy.
Coming down fast from The Ridge. Driver on crosswalk. I thought she turned and saw me so I began to ride in front of her. Then she started to move too! I had to swerve and brake not to hit her. I was pissed. She stopped and yelled through her window that she didn't see me and asked if I was alright. I was angry but OK. Sigh
I rode to Panera and got a bagel and a smoothie. I wanted a scone but the bagel was about half the calories.
Headwind all the way home.

Beautiful day.
Was riding hard and fast. Felt the glitch and then tachycardia started at mile 10 and didn't quit. Odd but bright HRM picked it up for 5-10 minutes. I might have averaged over 13 mph but I backed off a bit when my heart started racing.

Sunny and humid. Only time for a short ride so I tried to push it but didn't have a lot of energy. Saw two calves feeding by the fence. I went to stop but the white calf turned away and ran and the block calf followed.

Felt windier today. I didn't feel like going into a headwind along Mansfield but wanted to get in 15 miles. I did a couple extra miles along Oldwoods then road back Beardsley. I played leapfrog with a school bus and won.
