Well, I made it home and added a few more firsts...
First time riding home in the rain. Once I got soggy the rain stopped bothering me, but I am learning to hate headwinds.
First time running out of water. I switched to panniers and just filled a bottle. I guess my ride home is a "two bottle ride". I brought two to work today...
First time I have 1000+ feet of climbing. Most of this climbing is in the last 3 miles on the way home. Oddly enough I had my max speed on the commute in one of the little down hill parts in the last three
miles as well (38mph woots)
Made it into work today in 1:20 this morning including having to wait what seemed like forever at most of the traffic lights this morning.
I also learned two things about fog this morning. All those water droplets will make me cold and I am not sure my light was actually helping me see down the road.
I am happy to see that my average heart rate is dropping. I am hoping that this is a sign of me getting into slightly better shape.
