Day 3

Okay!  Day 3 of riding a unicycle long distance.  I can do this!  It was a cold morning at 7:40, but I soon warmed up.  The first 20 miles were really windy.  It makes it kind of hard to stay on and do hills…


I made it to Idaho!  Now to just finish the stretch of the longitude of Idaho and I’ll be in Canada.  Just 10 more days of riding…


I passed a lot of cows (Idaho, go figure).  But remember, cows smell like manure.  I was reminded of childhood memories of my dad rolling down the windows and driving slow by these kinds of fields.  He grew up farming and loved the smell.  I didn’t.  I tried to ride as fast as I could through those parts.


I made it to Malad City, Idaho at 3:30pm.  57 miles and two states, not bad.  In training, I did about 150 miles a week.  Now I’ve done it in 3 straight days and 3 more to go this week!  My legs are on fire!

Now on to more hills!  It’s all about the climb, right?

Random Fact:

The diet of athletes, at least One Wheel Man:

60 grams of carbs and 25 grams fo protein within 1 to 2 hours before and after workout.  PLUS 60 grams of carbs every hour during workout.

If One Wheel Man cycles 6-7 hours a day, you do the math.  It’s a lot of work!
