Hopped on the San Fernando Valley Bike Club ride as it rolled through my neighborhood today and went on a stately cruise out to Sierra Madre. It was good to get a chance to ride with Serious Cycling teammate Oleg Shalygin who is also recovering from his own crash just a day or two after mine. The pace was pretty much what I was looking for.
Tonight my knee is feeling pretty good, but my ass still hurts so we’ll see what the morning brings.
Here’s what I ate today:
- The Real Deal Oatmeal
- Giant Green Salad with veggies, salsa, guacamole and garbanzos
- Brueschetta with tomatoes and basil
- Bell Peppers and Hummus
- Feta Cheese
- Green Salad with Tahini Dressing
- Birthday Cake!
- Glass of Cabernet
So much sugar. I have such a weakness – if it’s in the house, I will eat it. I can be really good for awhile, but eventually I’m going to lose it. Not my worst day of eating, but I didn’t burn anywhere near enough calories on today’s ride to pay for the the cheese and the cake. Maybe the over indulgences will pay off tomorrow with endless stores of strength and energy?
