Whew! 30 miles down!
I don’t really know what’s a good time versus a bad time since I’m still pretty new to all this but I rode 30 miles in 2 hours and it seemed pretty good to me. I’ll take it.
I’m actually quite proud of myself!! I had a GREAT ride this morning and my legs felt super duper strong. All this cycling + running must be really giving me some muscle power because I was able to conquer all the hills, no problem. Plus, I successfully have mastered not only drinking water while riding but also riding in traffic! Now I feel totally confident unclipping one foot for a stoplight and then clipping in with the cars. Sounds scary and it was…..REALLY scary actually, at first. It took me a solid month and a half I think to really feel confident on the bike and now I can honestly say I really enjoy it! Especially the long rides because I can totally clear all the junk out of my mind and just be present. I always have to remind myself its not so much about the destination as it is about the journey. 🙂 Yoga + cycling = calm Jenna.
After 15 miles I ate these:
They were okay. Pretty sweet and I had to stop to eat the whole bag (I haven’t mastered eating while riding yet). I prefer Clif shot blocks…or Haribo gummy bears 🙂
I was starving when I got home….no wonder! Biking burns some mega calories!
Hot dang. Looks like I’ll be eating all day loooooong! 🙂
I got right to it with two slices of cold pizza. I was too hungry to heat them up!
I also had an apple and another piece of my chocolate truffle bar.
I’m off to meet Marcy for book stuff….and get a cappuccino! Then, its off to the studio. Have a good one and remember you only have a few more hours for the cycling hat raffle!
