Late and Long

A late start tonight. Rain causes the delay. I'd ride in the rain. Lightening... nope. It passes and off I go, aboot 3-hours later than I wanted. Headed directly to White Oak Bayou Trail. Didn't feel like fooling with traffic after dark, and figured there would be few pedestrians. I'm right. It's a lactate threshold ride tonight. With a couple of VO2 intervals thrown in for fun. The cool air makes it easy. Only 77°F.

Though it doesn't rain, I find lots of puddles. Someone needs to invent a word for the stripe that you get on your back when riding through water.
