Personally my ride went very well. The worst part was not putting on sunscreen, my arms have a very sexy pink tint to them. Physically I felt amazing, I have never felt better on a century ride. I had a tough five miles starting at the 60 mile mark, I had been sitting to long and was getting a sharp pain in an area where pain is not good. I stood for a few miles and that pain was quickly gone. As usual I felt stronger as the ride went on, I was passing riders with ease around the ninety mile mark. My body was loving the high mileage and wanted to finish very strong. I honestly feel that my final fifteen miles were my strongest. I don't know what it is but my body gets stronger as time goes on.
Post race I felt amazing, I made sure to head over to the local Munroe Dairy truck and grab a big glass of chocolate milk. The Indy 500 has milk for the winner, I have a chocolate milk waiting for me. I then grabbed a piece of bread and some grilled chicken. Very simple meal but I would wait till later to consume my "victory" meal. My blood sugar was at 72 when I pulled in to Burger King for my "victory" meal, I couldn't have planned a better day. This meal was my reward, crazy but after burning almost 7,000 calories all I wanted was a burger and fries. It was weird, during the day all Leanne would hear was how diabetics couldn't eat ice cream or fast food. Guess what, if you know your body you can eat anything a "normal" person does. I would not suggest fast food everyday, but when it is used as a reward every six months, it won't kill you.
