2010 Sawtooth Century

June 22, 2010 at 10:29 am 1 comment

The Sawtooth Century is 3 days away!! I know you’ve been waiting to sign up – looking at the weather and wondering why they moved the date up, we haven’t had time to train! But you can do it. You can sign up at Sportsbaseonline. You can pick up your bib bag at the Elephant’s Perch from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday. The ride starts from the Elephant’s Perch on Saturday at 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. The ride finishes this year at the Sun Valley Festival Field. The proceeds go to the Wood River Bike Coalition which is used to advocate and promote bicycle and pedestrian safety, education, and access here in the valley while encouraging everyone to further utilize human power for their recreation and transportation needs. You can read more about them on their About page.

    So what do we do with 3 days left? Rest! If you aren’t ready now, nothing you do in the next 3 days is going to get you more prepared than a couple easy spins to keep the blood flowing and rest. Now, if you’re thinking huge amounts of pasta to carbo load prior to Saturday, think again. Think of carbo loading as not consuming more, but burning less (rest or short rides). There’s nothing worse than waking up Saturday morning feeling bloated. Same for breakfast, skip the heaping pile of cakes. Basically, just eat normally. The best way to build glycogen stores is to promptly refuel after EACH workout. When your body is craving the calories is the most important time to provide them. On the ride, eat and drink early and often and get off the bike ans stretch for a bit when you can.
    Enjoy and ride safe!!
    Good advice, Jim. Thanks, it helps a lot. ~Kathy
