So... our planned ride for today (50 miles, 17 mph) was altered a bit when Justin S. asked to join. With two others bailing out that left me & Mike Z. to try to keep him under control. He's a really nice guy and I guess his next best option to riding with us slow people was walking around Providence Place. The first 20 miles were conversational but things picked up for the next 25 or so before settling back down for the last 12, just as it started to get cold. The average HR was low, but those 25 miles hurt. It was certainly more of a workout than Mike or I had originally planned for but JS was a good sport to put up with our significant limitations. He probably wishes he had decided to walk the mall!
