Rode a little over 120 miles over the long weekend. I won't bore you with details, but I have had some successes and some failures and have come to the following conclusions:
- I will probably do okay the first day of the MS ride, but the second day will be a real struggle for me.
- I will need to focus on replenishing spent calories after each ride to avoid "tapping out" afterwards.
I've happy to say that I've met my original fundraising goal, but now I'm actually trying to beat my husband's amount and I'm about $80 short. You can find out more about MS and why I'm riding here: Lisa's MS Fundraising Page. As I try to remind my friends and family, don't mistake me for an athlete, I'm actually just a middle aged woman with an exercise habit, and probably the least fit of the folks that I'm riding with next weekend. The MS ride will be a challenge for me, but less of a challenge than those faced with MS deal with on a daily basis.
It's not too late if you'd like to sponsor me on my ride. No donation is too small. Just ten cents per mile that I plan to ride that weekend works out to a donation of $7.60. Best of all, no ice required. ;-)
