After doing a century I've started a new tradition. My new recovery meal is a Big Mac and a Coke. I figured that after riding 100 miles and burning 5000-6000 calories sneaking in a Big Mac here and there can't be too bad. While I normally don't drink soft drinks due to kidney stones, it was either a Coke or a dark beer and I was driving......Hey-it gives me something to look forward to!!
After today's century they had a really nice healthy meal of grilled chicken breast, salad, tomatoes, etc. I sample some of that while sharing stories about the ride with others but I could not get my mind off my recovery meal that lay ahead. There's a McD's just about everywhere so it didn't take but an hour or so before I went by one on the drive back home.
It went down pretty easy!!!
