After a disappointing day of low motivation and high heat and humidity on Saturday, I got out for a great earlier ride on Sunday morning before any of the rain rolled in. I’m staying up in Laurel at my sister’s place so I can dog sit her puppy so I was already pretty close to what will soon be my new stomping grounds so I went out to spin around out there. I ended up doing a couple of great loops through the Beltsville Agricultural Center and ended up with 40 + miles on the day. Nothing too spectacular but still a solid solo ride at an average speed of around 20 miles per hour.
I was a bit displeases with myself after eating poorly all weekend and not getting the Saturday ride in like I wanted but the ride felt great and made me not feel as bad about the slacking on the diet. Today to make it even better when I weighed in after my lunch time core class I was 157, four pounds lighter then last week so I’m doing something right. I know I’ve been dehydrated when weighing myself so I realize that I won’t be racing this weekend at my goal of 155, but I am at least making the progress to get myself down to a good weight.
