    Arson,

    I dunno if you mean the OP (me) or the previous poster. In any case, since I'm trying to be helpful and feeling generous after my second cup of coffee, I am 5' 5.5" and about 150 lbs.

    1) Ride your own pace.

    2) Eat and drink well before you feel like giving up. Unless you have a medical, feelings of "I can't do this" and other emotions of despair are usually signs of bonking. ...
