A 2012 Goal Bike Ride

Posted on

In January I set many goals for myself. Most of them have turned out to be stupid, but a few have challenged me to go outdside my comfort zone. Yesterday I completed my goal of doing a 50 mile bike ride. This is something I should have done during the summer, but my amazing procrastination skills caused that not to happen. I figured a November December (I’m about a week behind apparently) 50 miler would be no problem with the odd warm weather we have been having. I looked at the forecast on Sunday and it looked like Tuesday would be a good day weather wise. So my friend and I set out around 10 am. My phone said it was 45 out, but it did not feel that warm.

We biked the first 13 miles and stopped for food and a warming session. After some sushi and mochi we headed north towards Carter Lake. It was finally starting to warm up.

Almost home

After we were done riding I was riding on a cloud. I felt like I could have riden another 50 miles. I don’t know if I really could have riden another 50 miles, but I sure felt good. The hot shower I took afterwards was so amazing. I have decided that I am going to do at least one 100 mile ride next year, maybe the MS Bike ride if they do the century option.

I am planning to do a half Ironman next summer and I was a little worried that I would be exhausted after the bike, but I think I will be feeling awesome.

i can’t wait until my next long ride.
