Okay so today Traci and I headed out at 6:30 to ride not knowing how extremely fatigued our legs were from yesterday. If we had been smart we would have just taken the short 5 mile ride but NOOOOO, we opted for the long ride with one little change. We wouldn't take an extra leg of the route but we would shorten the route but about 3 or 4 miles. When we got to the turning point we decided to go for it and so we took off.
The extra stretch is down a long corn lined country road and back to where we trun to go home.
At the end of the road I stopped to wait for Traci before we turned around to head back. On the side of the road there was an old farmer selling potatoes. So I'm sitting there trying to recover from the ride so far and the man gets out to chat. Our convo. goes like this:
HIM: where you coming from?
ME: from pribislavec through Belica, Mala Subota
HIM: you need to ride that at least 5 times. (that would be 70 miles)
ME: no, I think once is plenty
HIM: you girls sure like those cakes huh? Ate a few too many?
ME: huh? (in shock) uh, yea
HIM: you're fine just like you are (as if that would make up for the cake remark)
I translated and Traci and I broke out into a delirious laugh.
Anyhow, we made the 14 miles. I'm pretty proud of that. Tomorrow, I think 5 miles is plenty.
