Did my 40 minutes of chest work, got my crap together, then headed out on the bike. I wasn't in a super big rush and only tried to push the pace when I got onto the busier road. I ran over two VDOT measuring devices, saw two dead snakes, nearly had two heart attacks because of the dead snakes, saw a screwdriver, and saw a metal spoon. Oh, and the 1 Leg veteran that I see on occasion at the local Sheetz.
Beyond that, the ride was fairly sedate. I did manage to work up enough of a sweat that I could feel it trickling down my ass crack. But then again, that could have been the chest workout from earlier in the morning.
I figure only the Star Wars fans will get why I took this picture.
Temps were a cool 65F to 70F. No humidity. Light breeze. Sun was out in full.
Fluids and Fuel:
Breakfast was iced coffee and yogurt. During the ride I had a bottle of plain water and a little bit of an iced latte. Didn't really drink too much on the ride since I was cooler than normal.
Aches and Pains:
Nothing really hurt.
Nothing terribly special with gear. Did wear DATA and had to tighten it a bit since it kept slipping a bit.
Took my knife to hold my cards and that was it. Rode just fine in my jersey pocket.
