So I've only been cycling for just over a month or so, but I already feel so much better. I thought I wasn't going to get out for a ride today, because I heard it was raining (no windows in my office, so I didn't know). Then I get out of work and it was sunny and nice out, so I decide that I'm definitely going out. Well, just as I get going and I'm feeling really good...like I'm going to beat my best time on my 18-mile ride...I notice how dark it's all of a sudden gotten and how it looks even darker over where I'm going to ride. At that point I decided that I'll just head home to avoid the rain/storm and call it a "resting day". I get home and my fiance and I don't feel like cooking and I had ridden past a bar and smelled the amazing food coming out...so we decide that we're in the mood for bar food. We were going to have salmon/rice/vegetables at home...we ended up having burgers, onion rings, and cheese fries.
I don't feel amazing, but I don't regret it either. Men's Health magazing is always saying that it's alright to do this every once in awhile. For me it's kind of a break, but also a reminder of how wretched it makes my guts feel after the fact.
Ugh...weather.com says it's supposed to storm the rest of the week here in central PA. Looks like I'll have to pay more attention to eating better and plan to make up for all this missed time this weekend!
