Contrary to popular belief, I still ride my bike! I’ll be the first to admit I’ve slacked off in the past two weeks, but I finally broke through whatever funk I was in today and I’m and gearing up for the Echelon Gran Fondo, which is in just 20 days!
I can’t wait to see Caitlin!
So anyways, today I rode 45 miles in about 3:20. Seemed pretty good to me. Naturally, I stopped along the way for scenic photoshoots.
Cows are friends!
I also ATE more on my ride today, which I think helped immensely. I went through a couple shot blox and then pulled out a whole wheat english muffin around mile 30!
Oh carbs, what would we do without you? I drank a ton of water and blue gatorade (my endurance drink of choice!) throughout. It was HOT and I couldn’t believe I almost rode all the way to Armstrong Woods!!!! whew.
Oh! And I almost forgot. I ate another vegan applesauce oat bran muffin right before I left for my ride. Carbo-loading at its finest.
During the last 10 miles of my ride all I could think about was a shower and a yogurt bowl. I wanted the biggest, baddest yogurt bowl ever. It must have a ton of greek yogurt, mountains of granola, peanut butter and strawberries. I started chanting yogurt bowl, yogurt bowl, yogurt bowl, along with making ridiculous fierce scary faces while I rode up the last big hills.
Then, at long last!
It was a wondrous affair. I just dumped in a bunch of granola, kashi H2H and trader joe’s protein cereal in with my yogurt, globbed some peanut buttah on top and then sliced strawberries.
