Clouds, Glorious Clouds!- A Positive Rant
As alluded to in many recent posts, it seems like it's been miserably, even dangerously, hot weather forever. But we have mostly persevered. Well, the trend was broken here for me yesterday:
Temp in 70s- check
Low humidity- check
Moderate wind- check!
OMG, I do declare I am not the same rider when conditions are favorable! What an amazing difference! HR is ridiculously low, not even close to where it has been.... riding up formerly scary hills easily "sans granny". And today was just as good. Even though the sun was out, the other conditions were favorable and my nirvana experience was repeated. Supercyclist rides again!
Forgive me friends... I could not control my exultation. I now return to normal affective state and will wait for something horrible to happen. Something this good cannot last.
