Today was a wasted day. When I woke up this morning, it was raining. That was actually a good thing because the rain kept the temperatures down. After the rain stopped, I headed north from La Plata and had a nice tail wind. I made it to Kirksville, about 15 miles away, in about an hour and stopped to get something for breakfast. As I was eating, I began to feel really tired. The next place to stop was about 40 miles away and I really didn’t feel like I wanted to ride 40 more miles, so I decided to stop in Kirksville.
I don’t know why I can’t seem to get motivated to have a good ride today. Maybe the heat from the past few days has taken more energy out of me than I realize. I had planned to take tomorrow off because it is supposed to be the hottest day of the heatwave. Maybe I will use today as a day off and see how I feel in the morning.
