Same. That was me yesterday -- legs felt like two lumps of lead. Like two lengths of dead wood. Today would be a great day for an easy hike but I'm just walking locally instead. Maybe I'll do a night ride.

Enjoy the grilling.

Went on a 3 mile walk on hills and a walking trail with the dog this morning before the temps took off. Tried to get in a ride after lunch but only put in around 8 and my legs just said they had had enough. We are in the 90's from now until the end of next week. Thought my 70's was supposed to be my golden years.
Frank.

Heavy thunderstorms off and on all day today. Storms would pass, sun would pop out. Think.......now's my chance for a short ride. Check the weather radar map, next wave of storms 10 minutes out. Like this all day. Been a very wet spring so far up here. Has really cut into ride time. Enjoy your weekend Yanks.
