Note to Self: Put on sunscreen BEFORE watch, Road ID, and bike shorts!
I woke up this morning to find some very funky sunburn patterns. Apparently I forgot to put sunscreen on my legs. BAD LISA! I now have pasty white legs to my mid-thighs, then sunburn, then my shins and calves are pasty white. Sexy. 🙂 I also have sunburn markings where my watch was.
Note to Self: Use heating pad on back and shoulders after bike ride. Last night while we watched TV, I pretty much had the heating pad on me the whole time. It helped A LOT. I did not wake up as sore as I thought I would this morning.
Breakfast was scrambled eggs and a little steak. We had a tiny bit left over and it was “use it or toss it”. It was tasty, though!
Note to Self: Bring MORE WATER on bike rides. I was definitely dehydrated yesterday during and after my bike ride. The headache let me know that! From now on, I will drink a huge glass of water before I leave, and drink water every 30 minutes of the bike ride.
Note to Self: Figure out better snacking options for bike rides. I want to prevent that dizziness and loss of energy half way through my ride. I think I need Sports Beans, Chewies AND protein bars. After yesterday’s bike ride, I realized we should have taken some Bagel Thins with Peanut Butter.
I am happy that my fitness level is so high now that I can recovery quickly from strenuous activities. I am not as sore today as I thought I would be. My legs feel loose and just fine. Weather permitting, I’m going to run at lunch today.
