30 Bananas a Day!

119 mile bike ride aka worst day of my life

Today, I thought it'd be a great idea to go from my 50 mile route and upgrade to a 100 mile route, but apparently the trail went ~20 miles further than I thought. When I got to the 60 mile halfway point, I turned around, and it started raining a half mile into my ride back. And it kept raining. The whole way back. It was 50-55 degrees, which wasn't bad, but I only had a winter thermal top, muscle shirt and shorts. No rain gear, as it wasn't supposed to rain today as of the 7am forecast. Grr.

Anyway, I experienced moderate symptoms of hypothermia: My hands wouldn't function, feet were numb, muscles fatigued and shivered uncontrollably, became irritable and confused, started drifting off to sleep a few times lol. I couldn't even listen to music, because my iPod was tucked away inside a ziplock bag to prevent water damage. All in all, it was the worst 5 hours of my life. I honestly have no idea how I made it back but glad I did. Took a lukewarm to gradually hot shower and downed a nanner smoothie, so I'm feeling better. Moral of the story is I'm not a fan of meteorologists. Not one bit.

glad you're feeling better! you'll be fine! that's part of being alive. suffering is as much a part of life as pleasure. just accept all that life gives to us. i'm sure you've learned something with this experience. next time, you'll have a more pleasant time! make yourself a smoothie. eat your favorite fruit and do your favorite things(s). you deserve it! you're truly a warrior to have undergone all that! you make us proud! thank you for being with us and for sharing your experiences!

have a great day! fruity hugs : D
