I know for a lot of you 6 miles is no big deal, but this was my first rain ride. I dont have the proper lowerbody rain gear, but I figured it was a light rain and it was, so I really enjoyed it. I picked up a balaclava at Cabelas and it came in handy, although when I breath out through the mouth while its covered, it fogs my lenses. I've been considering contacts, this is just another reason.
I did a 5k road race last sunday, and then thanksgiving am, and I've been mixing running in with my race walking and had some IT band tightness. I took 2 days off from exercising, and found the ride today a good workout and also pain free, at least in terms of my knee. I had saddle issues as I hadnt tightened up the bolt all the way I guess as it wound up shifting under me. The LBS let me adjust it, but I didnt get it level and the last 3 miles werent as comfy as normal. I'm fixing it tomorrow, and hoping there will be some dry weather for another short ride after work.
