A few folks took pictures (I didn’t have my phone with me); I have emailed a couple of people to send me a picture so I can post it up! I ran a total of only 5 miles.
It was a hot day, but at noon I set out on my bike to do Hidden Hills. I wanted to do about 30 miles at a relatively brisk pace. The climb uphill to Hidden Hills was smooth albeit hot and humid. I was losing energy fast and didn’t realize it until I started the descent and was almost back home. I had done only 23 miles and had to stop with bonk-like feelings. Starting out fatigued, not drinking or taking in enough calories and burning sugar constantly is a good formula for a bonk. I stopped at Starbucks, ran into Rahul-Janki-Kai-Annika and had a cool lime refresher and a croissant. After loading up with a few calories and resting for 20 minutes I did another 10 miles in the heat.
Since Binita is away, I lazed around for the rest of the day!
