Total elevation: 1747
Average speed: 11.7
Time on bike: 7:03
Woo hoo, back in Texas- babe! Today was Texas jersey day and I was sportin’ my colors.
At about mile 55 through 67 I was having a hard time but I kept pedaling. One pedal stroke at a time. At the Texas sign, I laid on the ground to rest. Some time after the SAG, I started feeling better and muscled up the strength to continue riding.
There wasn’t much to see but a large cow farm. Yesterday I had the wind to keep me alert, today there was nothing. It was just me and the thoughts in my head.
I am hoping that two back to back centuries will get me over the hump and into the grove of riding, eating, and recovery. Repeat.
