Back to Back Centuries

Well we did something that I never thought I would do in this heat and humidity and HILLS. Friday was 104+ miles and Saturday was 120 miles. There are heat index warnings out because the temperatures with humidity are in the 105-110 range. My friends that is hot. I have done further than that 2 times before - 1 time in Western New York in April and one time in Iowa and I can tell you it was about 50 or so at the most. I miss those days!!!!

I calculated that I drank 400 ounces of gatorade/powerade/water on the bike Saturday. Then I ate dinner and the poor waitress brought me 3 glasses of water and 4 Arnold Palmers. Then I drank more water at the hotel before bed.

Our bodies are amazing vessels that can take a lot of stress but boy was I glad to get off the bike yesterday. Then I woke up and we had to do 60 in the heat, humidity, and hills again. This is the first time that I contemplated taking a taxi - LOL. Humbling, but we made it.

I have pictures but I don't have the energy to download them. I will do another picture day soon. Tomorrow is supposed to be 45 or so, down the trace so it should be a pretty good day to catch up on stuff.

Until then have a great night and go out and ride your bicycle.

Nicely done on your back to back centuries. That's fantastic.

BTW I love Arnold Palmers as well.
