A man's got to know his limitations
Famous quote compliments of "Dirty" Harry Callahan in the movie "Magnum Force".
I did the Prescott loop Friday after work, and decided to skip the rest stop in Prescott, in the interest of less time riding in the dark. What a mistake. I bonked hard. I went deep into my reserves in order to get home.
Saturday, I washed the outside of all the windows on our house, then convinced myself to do the Prescott loop again. 5 miles in, it started raining, and my legs were so far gone, I almost turned around and went home. For some sick reason, I kept going. By the time I got to Prescott, my legs came around a bit. I stopped this time, and refueled. What a difference. I felt like a new man on the rest of the ride. Lesson learned.
