Rode about 20 miles total yesterday. I got clipless pedals and shoes for my mtn bike so I went on a 16 mile road ride to test them out. Definitely improved my speed for sure, and it was only the first day using them. Hopefully I'll be able to ride some light trails today to test them off road.

 

So far for May I've got 125 miles in. I'd really like to break 400 so I gotta step it up a bit the next few weeks.

tested out the clipless pedals on some light trails today. just over 9 miles of riding. we left the house too late so it started to get pretty hot out. had only a small fall on a tight corner. i didnt land on a cactus, but somehow still ended up covered in tons of spines...

Yeah it was really fun, definitely something we both needed. Lots of talking and laughing and watching the sunset.

 

I did a short 4.21 ride tonight after I got home from work, my legs were too tired today to cycle commute today. Nice night time ride, barely any cars, hit all green lights. Starting to get faster for sure, 14.1 average mph tonight! I may work on my road bike tomorrow, I had a set back this weekend and had to re-do the entire bottom bracket, so I'm basically where I left off a few weeks ago. Oh well, I'll have it soon enough!

Nice! I hope to have that type of partnership someday, too! But, in the meantime, I'm happy for YOU!

Yesterday was going to be my rest day, but Jason got a new road bike and I wanted to go for a quick spin. My road bike should be in today! Pics will be posted when I get it.

 

Also, I'm trying to really stick to a meal plan to get fit for next season. I ride a lot, but I also eat a lot too...

158lbs. 29.5% body fat

 

Meal 1: smoothie, made with 2 bananas, handful of frozen blueberries, 16oz water and acai powder

Meal 2: 8oz. rice milk, 1 slice Ezekiel sprouted toast with PB, sprinkle of cacao nibs, hemp hearts and golden raisins

The BF percentage on my scale seems really off, yesterday it jumped to 35%...

Meal 1: smoothie of 2 bananas, blueberries and 12oz of rice milk. 8oz of water

Meal 2: 1.5 cups of roasted veggies/tofu/rice. 8oz strawberry fanta (which I later regretted)

Also, I won't post all of my water consumption but I drink at least 100oz. every day (not including what's in smoothies), usually more when I cycle commute.

 

No riding yesterday, decided to give my legs a break. Today we're picking up my road bike so we're doing at least 30 miles!
