Woohoo! 104k "Oxford" pop this morning with the usual ride partner. Seemingly virtually effortless. Started very easy, never seemed to pick it up (except for one outbound stretch when I was deep in thought and the bike picked up the pace all on its own), 2h04 in-motion outbound, 2h00 in-motion inbound for me. (The official elapsed time might look a bit slow since we started about 7 minutes late due to headlight issues and managed to time 2 outbound stop-lights wrongly, and had to wait for traffic at several spots outbound and inbound.)
Woohoo-squared! That usual partner only put 6 minutes into me in the final 13.5-miles. (She usually puts 7 minutes into me.) Anyway, 6 minutes behind today, but I was faster on Bruce Garner / New Light than usual this year (with no effort), fastest UP Ghoston this year by a minute (with seemingly no effort), UP Peed at 7.5-8 mph instead of 5-5.5 mph (with very little effort).
Finished. Showered. Eaten. Relaxed. NOT tired. Woohoo-cubed!
Also wish I had posted this to the blog last year.
I hope that I might have entitled the post "Aug-06: Woohoo! 104"
