Getting Ready to Ride...

So, tomorrow I will be riding the Total 200.

Not the full 200 mile option, but the 200k option which is 125 miles. Why not the 200 miles you ask? Well to be honest I have desire to ride that far in one day and will be just as happy riding 125. This ride will be the longest ride I do before IM Lousiville and the longest ride I have ever done. Hopefully it will make the handful of 100 mile rides I still have left feel shorter. Wishful thinking I know.

Anyhow, it's going to be hot tomorrow. Which worries me, but it could also be this hot on race day, which also worries me. Also not a fan of seeing thunder storms in the forecast.

Luckily the tour starts early and we should be rolling at 6am. But, I guess the early start time really doesn't make a difference when I will be riding for at least 7 1/2 hours. But really longer than that with rest breaks, etc. I am going to be as smart as I can and drink lots of water / my Gu Brew mix along with talking salt tabs every hour. I really do not want to end up dehydrated on the side of the road.

With that said, I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Happy Friday All :)
