good My 1st Century Ride! 103.39 mi 05:43 18.1mph pace

Well it wasn't supposed to be a century ride, it was supposed to be an 80 miler lol Safe to say Ironman Billy Collier (my impromptu guide since mile 25 or so) and I took a wrong turn - and didn't notice for a while lol. Not only did we ultimately add 23+ miles to our route on the Ironman Louisville course but we didn't turn around until after descending one of the longest hills I've ever been down...which of course we had to climb right back up after a quick discussion at the bottom. Billy had the nerve to watch his bike computer on the way up and said it was a TWO MILE climb (this is right at the 60 mile mark btw - ouch). All in all a very good ride. Would have stretched it out to a full 112 or at least done a short run afterwards but as it was I barely made it home to get Jake to his next AAU basketball tournament game. Felt strong after the ride. A real confidence booster since my previous long was 65 or so. Another question answered :-) I am enjoying this journey!

    Yeah Britt!! Welcome to the century club. Big week of training, a good sign for the upcoming IM. Time in the saddle is the key to fresh legs for the run.
