1) I lose aerobic conditioning quickly.
2) Riding on studded snow-tires is (gee) slow going even on clear pavement.
3) I ride into the wind both to work and to home due to shifting winds.
I got home in time to peel off some layers, change, then run to pick up my daughter from school. Glad I live only 2.5 miles from work and the ride isn't longer. That's my Gratitude Adjustment for the day.
