Jan 21 ride
Today I was tired so went to yoga instead of my exercise class--though it's not clear that my 1.5 hour yoga class is really easier than my exercise class--but I got to sleep an extra 45 minutes. It was a balmy 14 degrees F with winds 7 mph from the SW. On the way home it was 19 F with winds 9 mph from the SW. I didn't wear my goggles and it felt good to have wind on my face, though it was a shock going down the long hill from my house---my eyes watered up and my eyelashes must have got caught in the tears and stuck to my eye or something because it hurt, but it was only temporary. Wearing the goggles seems to make it feel about 10 or more degrees warmer to me. I got some groceries and had a pleasant ride home in the bright sunshine. I might have to start wearing my sunglasses. I'm reluctant to, figuring I need all the bright sunshine I can get this time of year.
