Didn't know I'd be so tired! I just started cycling less than a month ago after 40 yrs away from bikes. My previous longest ride was last week, 32 miles. Strangest thing, I first went west against a SW wind, looking forward to enjoying a tailwind later. As I headed south, wind had started to shift to straight out of the south. Then as I went diagonal to the SE, I was going directly into the wind. As I turned back north, wind had dissapated so I still didn't get to enjoy full benefit. Bad plan I guess. Also, the 12 miles I went SE into the wind was some of the roughest broken up concrete I've ever been on. I'll never choose that road again! Anyway, it was a great experience but I found out I have a lot of conditioning to to do yet to get prepared for that first full century! - NOW - A big glass of chocolate milk and then a soak in the whirlpool tub! Somebody check on me if I'm not out in an hour. I may be sleeping!
