Well I have not ridden since Friday (3 days off bike) and I really wanted to get back out. So I grab the bike and do a couple block warm up but I notice I am flying 3 mph over what I usually do. Wow I think to myself this is awesome I hammer down and I click it into high gears soon I'm doing 21 mph. I am so proud now, riding hard and fast not feeling a thing. Thinking its the days off that made me more powerful I go an extra 2 miles out on my normal out and back route.
I stop hit the water and take 2 mins to catch my breath it feels great!!!! Now here comes the newb thing not even thinking I start back the way I came and then it hits me the 15 MPH wind!!!! I did not even think about when I was riding with it at my back. I did 4-5 mph under my normal speed on the way back and since I pushed extra hard on the way out I was getting pretty worn out really quick. I made it home slow and steady but now I know to watch that wind hehe.
