Not morning any more. How'd it go? Guess nobody thought you'd have any trouble with it . . .

Nothing special to eat before, timing, etc. After, a glass of milk is nice. Or a beer, if you've a lactose problem. Chocolate milk is excellent and you'd feel like you were treating yourself.

Good job on finishing 20 miles. I usually get some protein and carbs in within 30 minutes or so after coming home from a ride. It's generally something like a turkey sandwich. I'll follow that up with some Haagen Dazs.
