I also did 25 slow pushups and a good stretch before leaving.

Not bad, but I was hoping for so much more.
A quick stretch after the ride helps my legs, but no amount of twisting or contorting has helped my back today. Hopefully the "Relaxation Room" will have some space for me.
[After work edit]
The Relaxation Room called me back and we scheduled to meet between 5 and 5:30pm on Tuesday next week. I'm excited to go! Mental note: schedule time with a chiropractor.
The ride home was uneventful. no dramatic time decrease. Oh well.

To be honest, I believe the biggest factor in my time is the wind.
