2014-02-08 LSA Burger Ride

It was chilly, but we all made it. I tried out the concept of pacing myself from the start. No hard pushes; a big, carby breakfast, more calories in my water, and lots of carbs at lunch. I was pretty much “The” B group, with Sharon and Becky about 3-4 mins ahead, then Ruth and Nadia about 1-2 mins behind me, and then Mark sweeping for Rob and Abe at the back. On the return, I put a little more oomph into my effort, but not a ton. I could feel that I would easily burn through any oomph I had left.

It did well, and I still had some left in the tank, but not as much as I’d hoped. I think a long stop for lunch may be doing me in. Also though, I’ve been on a weight loss kick, so my glycogen stores are probably fairly low overall.

We shaved some off of the return trip due to group fatigue, and I didn’t really feel like riding off by myself today to pick up more miles. (Yes, I’m lazy, and it was cold!).

I didn’t turn the GPS off during lunch, so my overall speed may not show up correctly.

Lots of photos on Facebook. Links only:.
