I'm reading a training guide to getting ready for a Century Ride, like we're having next weekend. Apparently, I'm in the taper phase of the training regimen. The scary part is that the taper phase is way more intense than anything I've done so far to get ready. It's probably too late now to try and do everything they recommend, so I'm working on the eating every 20 minutes that they suggest for these last six days. At least I think that's what they said.
I intend to post updates here from the ride. I imagine they'll be mostly about how beautiful the scenery would be if I could catch my breath and hold my head high enough to see any of it.
