The weather was perfect. Blue skies, mild temperature, so it should have been a really easy ride. About 4 miles into the ride, I had this wave of "ugh" come over me. I can't explain exactly what happened, but I think my heart was giving me a huge..."screw you lady." We rested for a minute, drank some water, and pushed on. After about 20 minutes I felt much better. I am pretty sure it may have something to do with the fact that all I had for breakfast was an orange and a cup of coffee...either that or my heart is reminding me that I am no spring chicken anymore. It was a little bit frustrating to be honest, but I am hoping once I get back in the swing of riding, all will be well with my ticker.
We did stop for lunch at the half-way mark. Blake enjoyed his usual burger, sweet potato fries, fried mushrooms and zucchini sticks. I enjoyed a garden salad, and some raspberry tea. I will admit, I felt much better after sitting and eating some food. One must not forget that the body needs fuel to run. Duh...
The rest of the ride was smooth sailing.
Total ride 16.35 miles...17 quarters earned for the challenge can. Woot!
