Cycling 1:44:00 [3] 22.0 mi (4:44 / mi)

A ride to work along the river trail network. Cooler today, low 70s and cloudy. A bit of a breeze up on the Anacostia levee. Route.

A few hours after the run yesterday my right achilles started to ache again. It wasn't a problem after orienteering on Sunday. This morning it was burning a bit. It's not clear if the ride is good for it or bad for it, maybe neutral.

Cycling 1:58:00 [3] 22.0 mi (5:22 / mi)

And back home again. Much slower, due to two factors: (1) exhaustion, and (2) traffic. Factor 1 was clearly dominant. I dragged out a Gu after about 20 minutes, and it helped for the next hour. At that point I was only a couple miles from home, but man, they were hard miles. As to traffic, there was tons of it on the cross streets, making it hard to find a gap. Also tons of it on the bike path itself -- fewer dog walkers, but lots more joggers and cyclists than in the mornings. At this point I can say once a day is a joy, but twice a day is a major workout.
