Bicycling (Commute) 40:10  12.1 mi (3:19 / mi)
From Northfield Rd., Bethesda, MD, to 13th & C St. SW, Washington, D.C. The wind mostly calm or much less than yesterday, and it was sunny. However, I was a little more tired. It was in the low 60s F. More riders and walkers were out, creating some slow-downs. I saw the guy on a unicycle again. It was like he'd been riding all night back and forth; he was headed toward Bethesda again which is the only direction I've seen him go, even when I'm going different directions.
Bicycling (Commute) 40:26  12.1 mi (3:20 / mi) +46m 3:18 / mi
From Northfield Rd., Bethesda, MD, to 13th & C St. SW, Washington, D.C. It was damp starting out and in the upper 50s F. I had a headwind right from the start. It kept up the whole way and was more or less steady. I rode alone and saw only a few other riders. However, I did see a guy riding a 3.5' unicycle going the other direction. My right calf didn't feel so good and that was a surprise. It got better after several miles warmed it up. I think it is part of my lingering back issue and right side weakness. By the time I was done I'd worked up a sweat.
Bicycling (Commute) 43:39  11.81 mi (3:42 / mi) +172m 3:32 / mi
From 13th & C St. SW, Washington, D.C., to Northfield Rd. Traffic was heavy when leaving work, but once again I was able to get through it efficiently. At least initially what was worse was the high pollen dust--pollen doesn't usually bother me much but it was heavy enough to feel like dirt dust being blown into my eyes. I very much enjoyed the tailwind after rounding the Tidal Basin. It was a little slow around the Kennedy Center but not bad in Georgetown. I just kept pacing myself and steadily passing. Only one other guy passed me and he was moving pretty fast. I passed the same guy I'd seen on a unicycle in the morning but this time he was going the same direction. He must have been doing 14 mph on an uphill grade since I didn't pass him all that quickly. He was passing others on 2 wheels. It was warm and a little humid. I rode alone.
After dinner, it was like Samantha had ready my mind. She, Max and I went to play tennis--their first time. I don't think I'd played for 2 decades.
A little rain over the last couple of days, and a lot of working late, conspired to create a lack of motivation for working out.
