Oh dear, the days are getting shorter

I've noticed it's dark later and later in the mornings. The last two nights we've had dark cloud cover which makes it darker earlier than if we had clear skies. I hate short days! All I want to do is sleep and eat.

So far I've ridden every day. Monday recovery ride, Tuesday D and I did Burdorf's but cut out downtown. I stayed in my aero bars most of River Road. She pulled the entire way. I have to push through that damned wall I keep hitting about mile 12. Tonight was good, but the ride is listed at 25 and might actually measure a little longer. We got to the ballpark and I kept thinking how low the light would be when I got back. So, I cut it short by 6 miles. Got in 20. I need to do interval work. Trying to decide if I want to do the fruit ride tomorrow or just go to the park and do intervals and a few loops instead.

Long weekend and I need to plan my rides. Louisville is sponsoring an Iron Man on Sunday, so most rides will be altered if not cancelled.

These last 2 days have been cool - right around 80 or so. Going to heat back up tomorrow and Friday. I can feel Autumn coming. You can almost smell it. The birds are starting to move, too. and another season changes to the next.

Oh yeah, at lunch today a colleague made a comment. She told me how my butt is smaller than ever. (Not her exact words). That was so very nice, to hear from a woman. Well, not that a man I work with would tell me that. Anyway, it's nice to hear that people notice things like that. I can only say that muscle is much more compact than fat,
