It was a big training weekend, our last big one before the race (in a week!). Again, both days started with my standard PB&J, though I changed up the bread for something with less fiber this week.
Saturday morning destination: Coney Island at 7:30 a.m. (= 6 am train out of Manhattan). The water was COOOOLD, or about 56 degrees. I moved myself up to the advanced group and stayed in there for the 25 minutes. My toes were numb. The entire time I was thinking about the Bachelorette episode with Tiara going for the plunge in the freezing lake and ending up in the hospital. Then it was off to run through Brooklyn.
Back at it Sunday morning. It was a 63 mile ride waaaayyyyy out to Rockland Lake with a few fellow TNTers. Ok, so I stopped to take pictures along the way. My food for the ride above. Can you tell I like the sweet/chocolate flavors? This is just the start of the ride. I’m on the George Washington Bridge with Manhattan behind me.
And we made it. I thought I was the slowest, but we rode as a group. With a few pit stops, and stops to make sure everyone was ok and still with us. Yes, that’s my bike jersey that makes me feel a little more professional. I’m not as matchy matchy as all of the other bikers, so only sort of look the part.
