Commute Loop – 2022.08.09

An odd sort of ride today, guess it matches the odd sort of week I’m having. With appointments yesterday and Friday, I’m riding on Tuesday and Thursday this week.

On the ride in I felt I had difficulty keeping my heart rate in Zone 2. I’d start putting some power down and my heart rate would climb. Yes totally to be expected, but not at only 130 or so watts. Last week sticking to around 150-165 would keep me around 135 BPM, but not this morning. Then oddly the opposite was true on the ride home. Kept finding myself in the 180 watts range with the heart ticking along at 135 steady. My only guess is tired legs and coffee in the morning and a double lunch for the ride home.

Overall felt pretty fast coming home despite the winds. Cycling Gods were looking down on me by holding back the rain for the entirety of my ride. Rolled in to the driveway and it started spitting but, never really rained.
