I wanted to get some extra miles in today to make up for the past two days, but the sleds felt heavy and it felt like I was climbing all day even though I wasn't. My legs were tired and I was just slow. I spent a little time rearranging the load in the sleds and trying to figure what was wrong. Then I realized that yesterday was a tail wind and today was a headwind. 121 miles to go. I think I can make it by next Saturday.
