It still may be allergies affecting me, but I took some OTC drugs last night and felt ten times better this morning. However, I went to bed with the worst stomach ache and felt like throwing up. I dealt with stomach issues every time I ate this weekend, but thought that was gone! What in the h-e-double-hockey-sticks is going on?
I went into school this morning but was only there for a short time. I just had the hardest time being productive and there is still so much to do. Afterwards I had to hit up scheels for an air pump for my bike. I noticed the last time I rode that my back tire was getting a bit low.
Once I filled the tires, I changed and was out to enjoy the sunny day! I just realized that no matter how hard I try to avoid it, there is always going to be the issue of wind. I also realized that in ND, no matter what direction the wind is blowing, your going to feel it whether you are going north, south, east, or west. The wind today was only 8mph out of the WNW direction and when I was heading north at one point I ALMOST fell off my bike. For reals. for really reals. On that stretch of the road, the speed limit was 40 and it happened right after a huge semi-truck passed me. I am sure it had to do with the combination of the wind and the truck passing me.
But, I pushed hard through this ride and reached an average speed I have never reached before! 15 miles per hour! I was so pumped. At one point I was averaging 16 for about 5 minutes, but then the wind got the best of me.
Cheers to a beautiful Tuesday!
