I worked for about an hour this AM and called off sick. I feel terrible!
Not terrible enough to skip lunch though, of course. 🙂
I had 1/2 cup Roasted Red Pepper soup, a whole wheat English muffin with melted cheese, and broc. It was a nice lunch for a lady with a sick tummy.
The English muffins taste so good when dipped in the soup!
Plus, grapes for "dessert."
A Pick Me Up!
To make myself feel a little better, I decided to go ahead and register for the Metric Century (60 miles) ride that I’ve been training for!
I am excited for this race because it’s going to be a huge physical challenge AND my dad and I are going to ride it together. YAY for Father-Daughter bonding.
The furthest I’ve biked is 36 miles, but I’m hoping to get in a 40-miler on Sunday with Kelly, Meghann’s sister. The race is in two weeks! I’m excited and nervous. 🙂
So, I think Metric Century isn’t a race the way I think of races. For a former runner, a "race" involves timing, race numbers, and trying to beat other people. From what I’ve gathered, an event like this is more of a "fun ride" or a "club ride" and it’s not suppose to be uber-competitive (although, of course, everyone is timing themselves). The biking version of a runner’s race is apparently a "time trial."
Are there any cyclists out there who can enlighten me on "non-race" bicycling etiquette?
I already know I’m not suppose to ride on my aerobars when I’m in a group! (Not stable enough for safety)
