November 3


Wondering why I signed up for a 25 mile ride... doesn't sound too hard, right!? Except I have never gone that far, and have N O T been training. And... it's about 2 1/2 hours away! Gas...time..food..tired... telling you, I am not excited.
Cody is super sick and wakes up all night long coughing for 3 nights in a row. I am T I R E D. I am going to sleep now, and hopefully will ride my bike around my neighborhood when I wake up, then go to church tonight. I am suppose to be tapering but haven't riden enough to taper and I am feeling anxiety about the ride on Saturday.
On a good note, had a fabulous time with my sister, her husband [Army soldier], and my niece and nephew. Many photos of the 4 cousins playing to come. :)
We went to Chili's and only due to fear of a gallbladder attach, looked at the calories and fat contents (salads... 44-79 g of fat!). I got Margarita Grilled Chicken.
D E L C I O U S. 13 g of fat (didn't eat all rice and beans so more like 7-9), fresh salsa and lime on chicken. Yum. I am so happy I was successful at eating out when I soooo scared to.

25 miles? That's almost a marathon! Good for you Adrienne! I couldn't do it.

It's on a bike though :) but you probably got that. Thanks Kelly! And yes you could!!! We'll see if I can! LOL :)

I hope you do well Adrienne! I just love a good challenge, and apparantly so do you. Get some rest.

I can see why you would be nervous about it. But think of how you will feel once it's over. Once you have that 'under your belt' and can blog about it; and tell everyone that you completed 25 miles! It will be an outstanding learning experience, even if you decide you'll never do one again. Sorry to hear that you're not getting enough sleep. That alone can zap your energy and make you anxious about the ride. Good luck.

Thank you Kimberlynn and fatgirlwearingthin!!! =) I hope Cody and I will sleep so I'll be ready. <3 Thanks for the comments!

You've got this bike ride. Spin alone will be preparation enough to go the 25 miles. It's not a race, it's a ride. You'll be fine -- I think you're over analyzing it.

Glad you enjoyed your sister and got good family time. Hope the kids are better soon. :)

I know I can do it and finish.. I'm just stressing over the gas $ to get there, and waking everyone so early to go almost 3 hours a way just for a bike ride.. I am excited now though and think we will all enjoy it.
