I hit a milestone today! I finally broke through the 19 mph average on my bike. I'd been averaging around 18.8 mph on my road rides and I just couldn't seem to get any higher. Today, I rode a little over 10 miles in 31 minutes for a 19.3 mph average! Don't know if I can sustain that but I've got all winter to keep working on my stamina.
Also today the band played at Mass and I got to do one of the things I truly enjoy, making music for the Lord with my band. It was a very spiritual undertaking and it never fails to put me in the right frame of mind.
I'm going to try and let those good feelings take me through the rest of the evening as I plod through a paper I'm writing. It's due next Wednesday but the research is going painfully slow. So I'll keep thinking of the positve and plugging away at it.
Ride AND Rock On people.

Your music is spiritually uplifting for you, and your riding takes care of the physical part. I'd say you're in a very good place Vince. Congratulations on the milestone!
