I know it’s not really been long since I posted but catching up seemed like the right title because I’ve been busy.
Eating good food:
Chilling out on my balcony with my journal.
Getting my zen on last night with the sweatiest class ever. It was awesome — my friend teaches for Yoga Shack and all this time I’ve never been to her class…I was missing out!
Hanging out with Rachel — we had tea and dinner!
…and that’s a lot of fun, just for yesterday!
And then today was pretty freaking awesome too.
I woke up to rain and clouds and not exactly the best conditions for riding 75 OR 150km.
Luckily, when I got to Sarnia to meet up with my friends for Pedal to the Pines, things were clearing up and I went out thinking I’d decide about doing the half pedal 75km or the full one nearly 150km when we got halfway. So I did just that.
And the sun was shining and my friends were down, so the full won out!
I’d call this ride pretty much perfect. We took it pretty easy on the way home cuz it was seriously windy, took our time at the rest stops, etc. but it was still not a bad ride to look back on! Smiles all around when we were finished. I think I drank a few litres of gatorade and stayed sugared up with dried fruit, an energy gel, and a bagel with peanut butter along the way. I felt good — full of energy and strong, even! I pulled my friends and especially at the end could see that I’d been putting in my mileage. Yay! That being said, I was ready to be finished by the time we were in the home stretch . Sore bum, much?
And apparently being a girl and finishing 2nd meant I deserved a trophy. Unexpected, much? I’m not going to argue–it’s kind of cute!
The best part MIGHT be the jersey tan. Oh lordy.
I’m going to rock this tan at the bar tonight.
Bonus tip: don’t go to the grocery store to buy “a few things” after riding a hugh jass bike ride, unless you want to buy groceries for a month.
Anyways, I’m going to go eat some steak (I’m dying for this dinner!) and have a much deserved beer. The thought of it is making me tipsy!
And be that girl who eats a whole big carrot while driving (I don’t believe in baby carrots, don’t get me started!) and gets funny looks from people in other cars.
How’d you spend your day?
Do you get worked up over tan lines?
What do you crave most after a long ride/run/race?
