Buffalo Bicycle ClassicToday I rode 100 miles. That a record!! I am so shocked that I went this far. It was an awesome adventure. There were so many events going on Sept. 9th. The RaceAthlete Team did Ironman Wisconsin. Duane did the Glenwood Springs Triathlon. I was thinking of them during my ride.
Well, I woke up about 5:15am. I ate a bowl of oatmeal and quickly got ready. I felt like I was running behind, so I drove really fast towards Boulder. Probably a little too fast. I made it in barely enough time. Of course, the ride was so relaxed there was no official start time. I wasn't used to this.
It was a neat feeling to start the ride. It was about 40-45 degrees and I was freezing. I should have wore a long sleeve jacket and pants. That was a pretty big mistake. I will remember next time. I guess I just didn't want to shed any clothes and have to lug them with me.
I stopped at mile 50. That was turn around point. I ate a p&j sandwich. I also filled up a 33 oz bottle filled with water. I drank 33 oz of accelerade in 50 miles time. If it was warmer, I was going to force myself to drink more.
I briefly stopped at mile 75 and 90. I used the restroom twice and ate 1 cliff protein bar, 3 gels and another 30oz of accelerade. Oh..can't forget the pretzels and oranges I had at mile 90. They were so tasty!!
Here are my stats:
Odo: 1153.10 miles
