Going past houses and smelling wood stoves going made me feel that I was riding in early December instead of early May. I'm a very stubborn person and refused to wear leg warmers while riding, I mean it is May!! Wearing my winter cycling jacket I was cruising all over Westerly in my Team novo Nordisk kit enjoying the sights and sounds as I rode.
Although my blood sugar started out of range I quickly was where I needed to be and made sure to take a swig of Gatorade and a bite of my Cliff Bar every fifteen minutes or so. I would have some fun while riding, sprinting through downtown trying my best to stay with the car that was right in front of me. With no room to ride on the side of the road I had no choice but to try and stay with the car in front of me while not trying to slow down so that I pissed off the car behind me.
Sprinting with cars and enjoying mile of the ride I arrived home with a big smile on my face and cold legs. Moving forward my hope is to have one workout a week that I don't worry about my running time. I have to be sure to enjoy each and every training day.
