Weekend Riding (Half and Half)

Saturday was a wind-trainer day, an hour and change on the Racermate for 20 miles. The Star Trek-Voyager marathon running on the local FOX affiliate made that (seem) very easy. It was below freezing outside, with lots of snow and hidden ice on the back roads, so riding out doors was not an option. The family now competes via a white board, with average speed at 30 minutes being posted on the family room wall. I am #1, followed by #1 son and wife. Nobody want to match me for distance.

Today (Sunday) saw temps about 40, with the roads clearing on a sunny afternoon. The Assenmacher came out for brisk 23 miles to Zionsville and back. The only hazard were the piles of melting ice, snow and branches falling where trees leaned over the roads. Since there was a Colt NFL playoff game today (Colts over Denver), the afternoon roads were very quiet.

Very good end of the week, a great start to the new year with 2 40+ weekends in a row.

Lifetime miles now at 135,137.
