I went for another 30 miler today, and it was way better. I don't think I've gotten a bunch more fit in two days, though. I think I ate better today, and that makes a lot of difference.
On Sunday, I didn't take any food, but ate a 100 calorie bag of sports beans. Today, I took a 250 calorie sports bar thing.
I think I need to be a lot more thoughtful about eating on longer rides because it really does make a difference!
On today's ride, I saw a snake in the middle of the road. It was maybe 2-3 feet long (it was curvy, and I didn't stop to look closely), and mostly brown. I'm guessing maybe a hogsnake?
