Each container is about 3/4 cup, so my serving of lentil-quinoa is correct for the cleanse. I also put a serving of opa in a container as I’ll be hungry after riding. This way I won’t be tempted to go out for lunch.
[Ate my lunch immediately after arriving at work like a ravenous squirrel.]
I sent my husband to work with my computer so I have to ride in whether the weather clears or not. If I don’t force myself to ride today, I’ll be unable to tomorrow or the following day..
(Whoa! I almost forgot it is Halloween! I’m dressed as a cyclist today!)
[So, I was totally dry on the outside and the only dampness was from my sweating from the inside. When I took off my jacket, I felt my wrist cuffs, they were pretty cold and wet. My gloves did NOT keep my fingers warm. I wore a SmartWool beanie under my helmet to stay warm. I tried to look at water spray on my jacket while I was riding, but I was mostly descending, so I couldn’t really take my eyes off the road. There was a lot of spray from the wet roads, so my choice of wearing shorts and not 3/4 length kit left my knees a bit chilly. I went for it on the hills because it was the only way I could warm myself up.]
After a month of using this on every ride, the weak glue on the Velcro to neoprene has come apart.. FAIL! EPIC FAIL, Runners World. 😦 Boo. I run AND ride with this and have gone through 2 this year already. I had to sew the edges of Velcro to keep using it. Too bad this is the only style I found that fit my tiny arms.
Cyclist, designer, fashion victim?? Ok. I’m that person. But I can’t help it! Check out the super awesome paisley repeat/ pattern on this silk scarf! I worked with textile designers and have had to learn about repeats and pattern design. Do you know how hard it is to make a beautiful pattern? It’s a skill. Plus, this one is made of little sprockets and chain rings and bike themed elements. I appreciate this sort of stuff. It’s elegant and sophisticated and not cheesy..
Cheesy is easy. You can quote me on that.
[This silk scarf kept my neck incredibly warm. I unzippled my outer shell a little bit while I was climbing, so my neck was exposed, but this scarf shielded me from the air. It dries quickly so it was a good call for a drizzly day like this.]
