Not a great week for cycling. Somedays I struggled to ride. I wasn’t sure if it was just that day or was I over training? I tried to listen to my body.

The wind is back, ugh. The love bugs were put in force too. Two loops.
We had a storm roll through on Friday. It caused some utility poles to lean. I hadn't noticed at the time, but it also took out the new pre-school under construction. The walls and roof were up. Today there are only two wall standing.

I think I have hit burnout. I had no energy today even when the wind was behind me. I haven't missed a day since September 1 and maybe it is time I did. I cut the ride short.
