Friday ride

I had an excellent ride today; it was about 38 when I left and 42 when I got home, sunny and calm. I rode for two hours, covering 30 miles. The new jacket Hobgoblin got me worked well; I rode with only a short sleeve t-shirt and a long-sleeved one underneath it, and was plenty warm. For rides in the 40s, it’s probably too warm, but perfect for anything below that.

My heart rate is higher than I’d like; I compared my average this time, 147, with other comparable rides I’ve done, and it’s maybe 5 beats higher than average. I’m not sure if this means I’m not fit, or if it’s my hyperthyroidism showing itself. The doctor says my thyroid levels are normal, but that doesn’t mean everything will be exactly as I was before I got sick. I’m not sure how much this matters either — perhaps it doesn’t matter much, or perhaps it means I’ll be at a disadvantage in my training. We’ll see.
