fifty-two miles

October 17, 2010

Saturday I rode my bike 52 miles. At about mile thirty I was ready to bail out and sit at a coffee shop until Rob could come back and get me, but I had some NSAIDs, some endurolytes, and they convinced me it was “mostly downhill” from where we were, and I managed to make it back to the car. I actually perked up quite a bit toward the end, when there weren’t horrible hills and I didn’t have to lead the group (which I did, for 15 miles, in the freaking hills) According to the chart I burned about 3000 calories, which I immediately replenished by making myself a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough and consuming most of it.

I was too tired to take photos.
