The rain persisted on and off until about 3:30 this morning. I know because it was raining at 10:00, it was raining at 2:00 and it was still sprinkling at 3:20 when I looked at the radar loop on my phone. I was thinking that I would wait until after work to get my ride in today as I lay back down to try and get some sleep.
I kept thinking about how yesterday's ride was so short and mainly a token effort. I thought about how the weather forecast was for more thunderstorms this afternoon and in all likelihood I would end up making only a token effort today.
I decided that for good or bad, I was getting up and riding this morning. I am glad I did.
The roads were still wet when I got out there a little later than usual, but I decided to just start out nice and easy and see what I could do with the time I had. There was a lot of sand and grit on the roads, especially on Quarterhorse by the construction site.
I did my first lap and thought to myself, "this isn't too bad." The temperature was 73, and although a bit humid, it was nice riding weather.
I know I was slower than usual as I was taking it easy, but I decided 4 laps in that I could make the scheduled 10 laps in what time I had. And that's what I did and I am happy.
