    100 miles and no beer-darn

    Man I did a computation on the calories I burned yesterday on my first century. After having lunch and drinking some sport drinks along the way as well as some gel packs I consumed 100 plus calories more than I burned. Bummer. I was som bummed I didn't even want a post ride beer. That would only add insult to injury.

    No recovery beer? Come now. Surely you have an error in your calculations! Don't forget your basil metabolism which is probably about 1800-2000 calories per day on top of the energy you burn while riding.

    Congratulations on your century! Now go do another.
