DAY 4 Wednesday
Time: 44min going. 46min back.
Weather: Raining the whole way there. Wind in face on the way back, but dry.
Showed committment today. Brought extra dry clothes to work in a plastic shopping bag. Arrived after a 44minute shower, resembling an unfriendly, unwanting wet dog forced to stand still in tub for a defleaing.
Put on fairy light shirt over big red, heavy head. At the coffee machine, the boss noticed my corporate outfit was draping over my radiating body with the seams exposed on the outside. Will have to practice my wardrobe change.
Angry, wet Unibomber
Because Ipod charging cable is lost, I am still riding alone with my thoughts and my inner commentator. As my legs ached way too early on my return trip, pondered if I was involved in a 'false flat'. Maybe causing lactate build up in legs or thighs, not breast.
Heard on TV about the Tour Riders in Monaco climbing on a false flat. Announcer was all knowing. Sounded mean not to tell them. Was this mysterious false flat sapping my juju and mojo?
Kept glancing at my slowly rotating tires. Strained but not flat. No juju leaks. False flat tire. False flat ground. False flat climb. Inner announcer wasn't sharing the cause of my true/false test. Was truly tested and felt truly flat.
Decided to favor rain over headwind. As if I will have a choice tomorrow or for my next three weeks. Rain AND a headwind AND a hill climb is a combo I am not in favor of.
Trip in: 6 riders passed me
Trip back: 17 people passed me
Numbers I passed: 1 older 60plusser who stopped to put on her rain jacket
My last two overtakers 16 & 17
