Sunday Ride

The day was amazing for riding. North wind about 15 mph could have been better but we have to get some kind of workout. Ray Olais and I rode 23 miles in 1 hour and 45 minutes. We averaged 12.8 mph. We rode north on K15 to old Dutch Ave. and rode west to Hesston and then took ridge south to 12th street. We cycled back into Newton. We only avg 10.4 mph. On the ride south we ran 19 mph minimum but most of the ride was 22 to 26 mph. Legs were burning the whole way. Got some new Pearl Izummo road cycling shorts and they made the ride really nice. No drawstring feels odd but I guess I just need to do some more sit ups to flatten ma belly...I burned over 1500 calories on the ride. I took in maybe 2500 calories in today if not a little more. Damn big brunch and then pasta for dinner. I plan on riding for an hour tomorrow morning. I hope that means about 12 to 13 miles. I plan to do 25 tomorrow afternoon from 3:30 to 5:30.

My debaters are getting their State Debate trophy photos tomorrow night. Red Room Studios here in Newton, KS. I hope the kids all show up.
