Well, I did not have a long ride after all - a couple of relatively sleepless nights, killer allergies - basically I just didn't have the vim to get out there this morning. Finally dragged myself out of the house around 1:30 and had a very panicky ride over to the park, but it was nice once I got there - it's cool and overcast, with a little bit of drizzle, so things were relatively civilized.
I think I will run long tomorrow and then do a long indoor ride on Sunday - I am well aware that I have been skimping on the long rides, but unless the weather's terrible the park will be too crowded for me to do a long one outdoors that day.
3 park loops (18.3 mi.), 1:13:58, avg HR 134, max HR 154
20 miles total
Bike store called earlier to say that the TIP bike is ready, so I will go downtown shortly and pick it up...
