Biked home from work

16.8 miles
50 minutes

Coming home seemed like more uphill and headwind than the way to work. Went somewhat hard as I was anxious to get home. Shoulder is sore from the heavy pack, need to leave stuff at work and not carry anything.

Biked to work

16.8 miles
48 minutes

Driving home last night I noticed that the price of gas has crept above $3.50. This combined with the improving weather and the reluctant urge to take a day off my feet convinced me to pedal in.

It felt so great to get out there in the fresh air and cruise along on a nice morning. It was a bit cool (43.8) when I left the house at 7:02am, but I quickly warmed up. I focused on spinning and trying not to go too hard as I was intending to clean up in the sink vs. take a full on shower once I got to work.

Itching to get out and ride up a hill after work, but riding home will be all I have time for as we have dinner plans. It is a "rest" day after all.
