Almost did my first century on a whim

Today I went out for what was intended to be a 40 mile ride. I came well prepared with 5hr Energies, Gu, lots of water, Clif bars and fruit. Well into the ride I was feeling so good I decided to change my route to what I knew was 60 miles then changed it again to 75.

THEN I felt it was time to call it a day as my body told me that euphoria was going to come to a very quick end if I kept going, but I donít mind as I learned a lot about what my body needs for a ride like that.

Im surprisingly not as sore as expected nor as tired. Iíve been training to do a century for a few months but the fires in my area brought that to a halt with all the smoke. I think I should be ready by end of October!

Feeling good at 60 !

Great ride. Definitely listen to your body during the ride. I'm sure you'll be able to hit 100 the next time.
