Happy Birthday RBM
PSC and PTL that ride was so tough, but a fantastic boost to think how I felt at the end and actually thought that I could probably run / walk a bit after has made all the training worthwhile.
Funny thing is that some family met me at the end and expected to see me in pieces but commented on how surprisingly fresh I looked, just shows appearances are deceiving!!
EP hang in there, if you need to visit do it as you can use it as motivation in the dark moments.
keep going everyone - great training.
for what it is woth 105 miles yesterday and 8,000 feet climbing - i hate hills at the best of times!
slow - at 11.3 moving time. Lsat 30 miles pace dropped right off with hills and upflats.
positives, are that i learned loads about myself, got nutrition about right, need to drink a little more when i am struggling.
back and knee sore - need to pack ibuprofen next time.
a little cramp as no salty stuff at feed stations.
Would probably be able to walk, stumble a bit afterwards!
met the lovely purple tri lady - thanks for the support.
first 100 ride for me tomorrow - Castle 100 - bit nervous!
This was the point last year year that reality set in and after only managing 62 miles of the 100 quit and pulled out of Outlaw.
This training been far more consistent a few 50's and 60 mile rides under my belt, going to be a tough day, but fingers crossed
Schmunks and me please, for two.
KK - you know us men cant multi task, walking and talking is an evolutionary miracle for us
