2 weeks in a row the bike mileage has been poor. I am having some difficulty finding time at a safe time. Last few rides have been scary at night with drivers and debris on the road. Still learning safe routes and times. Need to get the lake. Swim is awesome, nice and confident in the water. Speed and endurance are picking up. Run too. I am sure my VDOT is outdated. been meaning to do that soon. My runs are coming along. Is under 2 hours possible in santa barbara?
