Today the sun was back, at last. After 3 days of rain - sometimes heavy - I was keen to ride out again. I didn't want to go out too long though, just a quick dash to feel the legs. The wind was blowing fiercely from the west , so I chose my loop carefully to avoid it as much as possible. As was to be expected, my legs felt good after 3 days of rest. Good thing because last week was a big one with over 300K and 3650 heightmeters.
On the PC front I could at last begin to work with my new desktop PC, a Quad Core speed monster with 4Gigs of RAM and running XP Pro. I still need to get my Polar interface to work though. Since the new PC doesn't have any COM ports, only USB connections, I got a RS232-USB converter but the thing doesn't seem to work. Or at least my Polar software doesn't use it. A mans' work is never done it seems, and nothing in IT is easy.
Ride Stats : 21K and 120/139 heightmeters (Polar/Garmin) in 51mins
