Had a nice bike ride today. (Looks like I'm gonna keep posting my Map My Run reports until I've done every route at least once - hope that doesn't get old for you!)
I rode a slow, easy pace today. Here is the interesting thing: yesterday's "pushing myself pretty hard in the wind" speed was just under 6 minutes per mile. Today's "riding at a mellow speed in the wind" speed was just under 7 minutes per mile. That just seems like not much a difference in actual speed, for such a difference in fatigue effect.
That said, even though I went nice and easy, I'm wiped out tonight (due at least in part, no doubt, to the fact that I started out still a little fatigued from yesterday's ride...definitely some conditioning to catch back up on, after the long winter of very little biking.) I'm awfully grateful for my EasySeat - the butt is in pain, but at least it's only the butt.
I'm awfully glad bike weather is with us again!
