My pedaling felt different today. I seemed to be pushing harder; I could feel the pressure on the soles of my feet. The wind was around 15 mph, but it felt like I could ride against it more strongly than I used to. It was mostly overcast, and cooler than usual for August. The last few miles a light sprinkle set in, but that's easily tolerable.
Oh, and I tried a bit of out-of-saddle pedaling. I'm still not very good at it. Well, as long as I'm not trying to outrun -- er, outPEDAL, I mean -- a wolf, I should be OK.
