We went on an awesome 16 km bike ride today, straight up and straight back down again. “Hey! Maybe I could enter the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer” I mused, “this isn’t as difficult as I thought”. I was gently reminded that I could multiply our little morning’s jaunt by 7 and how that would be equivalent to one day of the Enbridge ride. “Hmmm,” I thought, “isn’t it amazing how cycling outside differs from my spin class.” I am certain of one thing, however, my fellow spin class sidekicks (Sharon and Randy) would be proud of me (insert laughter here)!
Note to self: I had worked up an appetite… and it was easy not to cheat, I can do this… AND I just might train for that ride!
But who am I kidding? This dietary restriction is never going to be sustainable in the long
run ride, but at least I know I can do it;) Everything in moderation they say! If I just pace myself… who knows what I’m capable of?
I made my awesome rib recipe for supper. Our guest said that they were the “best ribs he’s ever eaten” and I could tell he wasn’t just trying to butter me up;) Maybe everything just tastes better at the lake?
If you missed the recipe for the ribs from my earlier blog, click on this link ExtraMeatyPorkBackRibs. A simple assortment of springtime vegetables were roasted in the oven and Presto! everything that day was simple and sweet… in a good way;)
