Preparing for the BIG RIDE

Saturday/Sunday is the big ride of the year — 75 miles each day.

I did the 50 mile Sweet Corn Challenge with all those hills and was exhausted when I got home – took a shower and slept on the couch for about 2 or 3 hours in the afternoon.

Still felt a bit tired on Monday, but that’s how I’ve felt the past 4 years of doing that ride. First year was 25, other 3 have been 50 mile.  About 2900 feet of climbing.

  1. I responded to your comment on my blog today, but in case you don’t check back, here’s a link to the interval timer that I recommend: http://www.gymboss.com/gymboss-classic

    It’s simple to set and then you don’t have to think while you run – you just run when it beeps, and walk when it beeps! Good luck with your big bike ride this weekend!
