This ride - which I have done approximately a million times - but never in January - is odd. Regardless of how fast or slow I feel like I am going - the ride takes between 1:47 and 1:50. I felt slower than molassas this morning - I mean really slow and yet there I am at the coffee shop within three minutes of when I totally hammer. So strange. Nice to be out. I feel like a pregnant rhino with flat tires - but it's nice to be out and get a couple K of vertical before the day starts.
