I went for a 16 mile bike ride today with my new camel bak. I filled the whole thing (70 oz.) up with ice and water. I tried to make sure I would take a few sips of water every mile so that I wouldn't get dehydrated at all. I biked a lot faster today than ever before, with my fastest speed 19.3 mph. I was so pleased with my ride and cannot wait to get back out there tomorrow to complete a brick workout.
I am trying my hardest to be in great shape and ready to tackle the hills when Callen and I ride the triathlon course next weekend. The triathlon is 2.5 weeks away and I am still super nervous about the bike portion. I know I handle the distance but I am very very worried about all of the hills on the course. I have been trying to add in some squats to my workouts to build some extra strength in my quads.
On a random note, I got a 100% on my math test yesterday :)
