Energy Shortage...

It's been sunny the last couple of days, but a lot cooler than last week. I was able to ride both last night and tonight, but I had to really layer up. Even had to wear the ear clamp yesterday.

I was surprised at how much pretending to be a lumberjack Sunday took out of me. I was still feeling stiff on Tuesday. Last night I felt strong on the first lap of my ride, but labored on the second. Tonight right from the beginning my legs had about as much available energy as a book of soggy matches, and I quit after 7 miles. I can't even blame the pollen, because the cool weather seems to have knocked it back quite a bit. Very annoying.
