Day 5

Fri 2012/08/24

Start mileage 4864.9 end 4885.8 daily 20.877 trip 150.4

Travel: Huntsville to Trinity.

Chip seal most of the way.

It is day 5 and the first day of the trip that actually had a tail wind, for about 5 miles.

Coming into Trinity, I sensed that the front tire was losing pressure, and I pedaled really hard at the end to avoid having to stop and change a tire on the road.

Today I only planned on 21 miles because I am staying in hotels each night and the next hotel is likely beyond my comfort zone.  Despite the short mileage, I feel challenged about the distance for some reason.

When I get to the hotel, I realize that I am quite dehydrated and didn’t recognize it until I was in the room, when I drank a full bottle of water without thinking about it.
