Super stoked, my first century is on the 19th and i feel alot more confident about it now. Took me a long time though, the better part about 6 hours. I decided it'd be better to go slow and eat more than usual, its better to finish than to bonk or blow up i figure.
took in about 1400 calories of energy foods on the ride and and ate a small sandwich for lunch in the middle so i didn't bonk but i did experience sore lungs and somewhat tight breathing at the end, i've had this happen before when i push myself past my comfort zone.
Only thing that bums me out is i started getting nasal drainage afterwards and sneezes and bam i got sick so i guess i stayed out a bit too late this weekend and pushed myself too hard, has that happened to any of you guys after a long ride?
