I am pretty sure I hit a wall because 1. I was underdressed for the weather 2. caloric intake was completely eclipsed by hours on the trail.
Breakfast was 1 1/2 scrambled eggs with 1/2 oz feta cheese melted into it, a small muffin and 4 shots of espresso with 4 oz soy milk.
What I wore was the medium weight long underwear and a pair of knee high smartwool socks, a wicking shirt a long sleeve wicking shirt and a rain coat. for gloves I wore a pair of synthetic gloves I got from Team Ortho.
I should have worn the heavier long underwear. I should have had a larger breakfast or mid morning snack before heading out. I should have worn the wool shirt and mittens I was carrying in the pannier sooner.
We had a great ride though. I think Jim liked that I had a map of Scandinavia, and I liked that his phone told us where we were.
I think I need to work on taking longer rides. Depending on the weather I might ride Frenchie next Monday and try to pull another 44 miles.
This post is particularly whiny. I blame it on The Biggest Loser. They rode a stationary bike tonight and keep bitching about how hard the seat is etc.
