But regarding anything beyond this, dear friend, go easy. There’s no end to the publishing of books, and constant study wears you out so you’re no good for anything else.
…for 60-mile bike rides in the middle of the week. Among other things. Today’s 60-mile ride was courtesy of Heather, a gal I met through the Earthdreams rides I’ve been doing. I rode down to the meeting point at Marymoor, where Heather’s friend friend Joel (who talked a lot about being out of shape but still kept our pace over 20 mph whenever he was pulling) joined us. We did a loop around Lake Sammamish at speeds normally only attained by Concorde jets, and my ride buddies dropped me only once on East Lake Sammamish, so I consider that I acquitted myself well. Looking at the data, it looks like we averaged almost exactly 20 mph around the lake.
