Last weekend, I did my first bike ride in almost three months, since August 28 or IM Canada to be exact. I completed the ride a mere 5 minutes slower than what I had been doing during the racing season. Even more strange, I didn't need to take in any calories for a two-hour ride, no food, just water. Yesterday, I did my second ride and once again, I have some observations worth noting. I rode the same time as I had been doing all season long, and I required no calories for the duration of the two-hour ride with over 3,000 feet of climbing. All I needed was a half bottle of water. Hmmm...take three months off the bike, and when you return, ride the exact same times you've been doing all season-long, and do it with no calories. If I could only figure out how this works, I would be one damn good coach.
I'm basically interested in all things funny, health and triathlon related, and sustainable living. This blog used to accompany a website I built to raise awareness about cancer as well as raise money for different causes.
