Remember those capricious gods of work and weather? Well, I must have done something right, because this weekend is going to be awesome: Three full days of hot, sunny, summery weather and nary a trace of work that can’t wait until normal life starts again on Tuesday.
I kicked things off this morning with a bike ride. Given everything else that’s planned for the day, I told myself I had to be done with the ride by 10:30am. I headed out at 7:00am sharp, rode for 53.8 miles, and was back in my apartment at 10:25am — right on schedule (yay!). It was a great ride: too early in the morning to see any of the fun stuff I saw last time, but that also meant I didn’t have to dodge quite as many people. We’ve got high humidity (71%), so the early morning was cool and misty until the sun burned it off around 9am. Fortunately, I don’t feel the humidity as much on a bike as I do when I’m running — go fast enough and you’ll have all the wind you need to keep you cool.
Now I have two hours to rest my legs and run errands before the next adventure. Woot!
