Susie's Day 4: What a great day! The weather was gorgeous and with the help of magic pills called Sport Legs, I had energy to go 70 miles today. I had some minor tummy issues after lunch and I think it's because I don't normally eat a big ol' meal during a ride. Yesterday was a honkin' plate of spaghetti and turkey meatballs. It was delicious, but it sat like a lead balloon. And today was yummy grilled cheese, but within minutes of leaving the lunch spot, I was getting cramps. The road back to Sierra Vista was gently rolling and with me drafting off Randy, we were making good time. It felt great, but I wish my tummy felt better. I've decided to go with my usual bike food fare of Clif Shot Blocks and Nuun tablets that I put in the carbohydrate drink. We stopped at Sun 'n Spokes, a cool bike shop near our hotel on the way home and I got what I needed to get me through the last two days. Bike shop, DQ for a blizzard and then a yummy dinner with friends at Vinny's pizza across the street. I've met the nicest people here -- everyone is so supportive and friendly. Looking forward to tomorrow -- I may actually be able to start the ride without toe warmers, jacket and skull cap!! Yeah! Sunscreen tomorrow, baby!
