The wind was howling today. 20 mph with gusts to 35 mph. I hate riding in the wind.
Good thing I had some friends to get me out there.
Steph told me to get out and use the wind to my advantage for a good workout. I only planned for an hour so it wouldn’t be too long.
Then I had planned to ride with another friend. She almost didn’t come because of the wind and the cold. But she was around and had all her gear so she decided to ride after all.
We had a stiff headwind going out, with a cross wind in other spots, but on the way back we had an amazing tail wind. That worked really well because I was able to work hard and open up a bit into the wind and just relax on the way back.
By the time I returned I felt like a million bucks. Tomorrow I hope to be in good shape for a little longer ride.
