As my training is continuing toward Beach2Battleship, my long rides and long runs are not only about the distance but what works for the distance.
My pre-ride was extremely disorganized today. My breakfast was Kashi oatmeal, .5 scoop of whey protein, and .5 cup of milk. (Also a Diet Mountain Dew). I filled all my bottes and mixed my special formula of Infinit designed for the long bike. As I arrived at TriSharkie's house, she was having the same kind of morning that I was.
I ordered a new AeroBottle with 2 chamber and had that on my bike today to try out. I needed to make sure to hydrate and get my Infinit for nutrition. We mapped a route out for 65 miles.
The pace was good and we concentrated on nutrtion and nutrition. The ride was very uneventful. I loved the new AeroCell bottle. On the return we had a strong wind slowing us.
We finished the 65 miles around 4 hours. We both felt good and learned alot.
- Loved the new AeroCell
- Put Infinit in small chamber / Water in large chamber
- Mixed 7 scoops of Infinit with water and used blender. Tasted good. Drank all by mile 60.
- Got very hungry after mile 50. Need bigger breakfast.
- Went through 48 ozs. of water with non left. Pack more.
This is such a learning experience. I know there is still much ahead over the next 14 weeks.
Waddling to prepare for a 12 mile run tomorrow.............
