Good Time, Noodle Salad and a BUNCH of Miles.


image

A 74 mile ride yesterday, a ride that by all accounts should have been a great, fairly easy 20 mph ride, ended up taking a lot of want to by the time we were done.  I started struggling at around 48 miles…  Probably a bit of over-training.

After a shower and a nap, my wife and I took the kids out to a friend’s house.

After that it was a nap before we were off to Diane and Adam’s house for a cookout, a lot of laughs and getting to know a couple of longtime club members.  My contribution?

You know it.  Noodle Salad.  As good as I could hope for.

After today’s 55 that’s 258 for the week and I only need 67 more to crack 1,000 miles for the month. It’ll be tight but I should be able to get it done.

Today is a party day… It’ll be a nice breakfast for lunch followed by an enormous nap. The clouds are already building for rain.

    74 miles. That is a huck! What’s the longest single ride you have done?

      125 miles, alone, no support. 62.5 miles straight out and 62.5 miles back. I did it in something like 7.5 hours and it was HARD. I’ve done 100 milers dozens of times but my best, to date, was three 100+ mile days with a fourth day capper of 72 miles. We went from Lansing, Michigan to Mackinaw City, Michigan in four days.

      Thanks, man.
