Long Morning Shadow
With the humidity, it was a bit chilly when I headed out from Wabash Trace Trailhead. Glad I had my light jacket. Headed down the Lake Manawa Trail. I had some back pain over night, so took a couple generic "Tylenol". Hoping the ride would loosen up the back.
So, I took it easy starting down the trail. Felt pretty good to be one the bike, riding the hybrid. Looking for a little change of scenery, I decided to ride the loop around Lake Manawa in a counter-clockwise direction. Today's photo was taken on the Veteran's Memorial Trail near the junction of East Manawa Drive and Hwy 92.
Did not meet any other riders until I rode down Indian Creek Trail. At the bridge, I was getting a bit warm so stowed the backed in the rack bag. Met several more early morning riders in Lake Manawa State Park. Surprisingly, my legs were not sprnt when I got done.
While in town, did a couple errands. Stopped at the hospital for my regular blood draw. Then Hy-Vee for new supply of generic tylenol and one of my prescriptions. On my way home, detoured to Treynor and picked up some snacks.
Home, checked e-mail and facebook. Re-hydrated with Powerade Zero and took a nap. Pretty good morning. Calendar proof was in afternoon e-mail. Approved the proof. SWINT meeting this evening in Silver City, debating if I make that meeting.
