Oy. Only 4+ miles, but very hard. Lots of hills, lots of sun, lots of cars. Now I remember why I choose around the lake as my daily ride!

I thought I'd ride to the nearest coffee place, but got a bit lost. Once there, I wasn't impressed with the seating or the coffee (I'm a lightweight, I like Caribou's mild type of coffee, not the strong, bitter stuff that's become normal...)

The ride home was very painful. Every bump, jolt and jitter ran up my legs and across my back like an electric shock. I have a terrible feeling that sciatica, calmed for a few days, may be visiting me again tonight. I feel like an idiot.

Tomorrow I have physical therapy to help me deal with the ongoing back and ribcage pain. This is so hard, so hard. I understand why some folks can't continue when they're racked with this type of pain for years on end.
