Sounds like my mid-week day off.

Went for a ride. Cruised around the trendier parts of Houston (nicer scenery). Stopped and had a big strawberry milkshake. Took my wife out to dinner.

Back to the work week slog today.

Still, yesterday was a good day.

Ha. I also took yesterday off.

The bad: 60 km slog against headwinds and heavy traffic (I always forget about trucks during the weekday. I had the closest call I've ever had with a tractor trailer, inches from my shoulder)

The good: Discovered some absolutely delightful roads on the way back that I'll definitely ride again.

The total: 110 km.
