This has been one of the best May that I have had in a while. I backed off of two commitments that I have had in previous years, opening up some free time (that I promptly filled with bike rides and family time!). I feel so much more rested and energetic than in years past. May is no longer my month of mayhem. Relief. I guess I'm learning my limits and working on my quality of life!
I actually felt good on the bike up until I started getting too hungry, around mile 45. That's when I started going into deficit, and making that up is possible but difficult. Gotta be preemptive with the food!
