Spring Winds in the Southwest

I have had three days in a row of riding. I started to say good but the winds yesterday made it a little tough. Saturday I rode with Greg and we went 24 miles with an average speed of 15.5 mph. Definitely feel I am getting stronger (of course, he really pushes me). Sharon and I rode Sunday but with much different results. We rode 57 miles but only averaged 13.4 mph. Today I went out and did 31 but with much the same results as yesterday at 13.6 mph. Sunday's ride was up hill the first half and then the return was with a 15+ mph head wind. There were also stronger gusts with the occasional crosswind. I think today my legs were just dead.

I have been working on knitting a pair of socks as well as doing some needlepoint. I will post pictures soon of my progress.

Hi Patty,
I don't know if you will get this but I wanted to say "HI" and wish Greg and Bridget a huge congratulations for their Ironman finishes! They both did so well! I went up to watch as I got injured a few weeks before the I am signing up for next year! Pretty place isn't it?
Hope all is well with you and tell Bridget to e-mail me if she gets a chance! I watched her finish and was yelling her name...she probably wondered who in hell the crazy lady was! Take care- Cheryl Palen
