It was warmer and more humid than I thought with temps in the low 90's. I also left a little later that I expected to. Not only was it a bit hotter, but I hadn't eaten since last night. I had a bit of a bonk the last 6 miles. Ugh!! I pulled off in a shady spot, drank some water, squirted some water on my head and after about 5 minutes I slowly finished up the ride. Live and learn.
The ride was pretty good for the most part, but my legs were feeling the heat I think. They were very tired. Even before I left on the ride, I just didn't have a lot of energy. It could be from the miles, but I suspect it is from the excessive heat. This does tend to have a cumulative effect. I didn't really pay attention to my pace today. I know I faded badly the last 6 miles but I can't say for sure what I was riding before then. My guess is somewhere around 17mph, but that might be a bit generous. No matter, it was a good ride for the most part. And I managed to beat the t-storms!! That should help cool things off a bit and dry things out. The next couple of days should be really nice riding days!!
