The struggle (in sportives) is real..

via How to Help a Rider Who is Struggling on a Long Ride…

The above Total Women’s Cycling article lists some ideas that I have done in the past with my cycling pals. I encourage them to hold my wheel, eat more, drink more, don’t muscle it – drop a gear or two and pedal faster. I’ve become a great cheerleader through my indoor cycling career and take it on the road with me.

I have a century this weekend and my main concern isn’t about me. It’s about my friend who roped me into said century so early in the season.  She’s done very little training over the winter. Two weeks ago when we rode together, she struggled with 20 flat miles. I have a feeling I’ll be riding mostly by myself and seeing her at rest stops. Maybe.

But that’s okay. We’re at different places in the grand scheme of things. I’m still looking forward to spending time with her, both on the bike and off at the beach!  #notbikiniready
