Day 4 is done and dusted and what an exhausting day it has been. I did some real mountain biking today in a real forest and even though we stuck to the lower grade tracks man was it a bumpy, hilly ride. Definitely got the heart pumping! And if 2 degrees in town wasn’t cold enough I swear the forest was colder again.
I think we spent close to 3 hours on the tracks and maybe did 7 or 8 km worth of riding. Despite buying a $5 map we got lost and were fearing the worst until we stumbled across sign posts pointing us back to the car-park phew! We are pretty newbie mountain bikers so it made for a thrilling experience but I don’t think I will be getting back on the bike for at least a week. Even after yesterdays leisurely bike around town the old seat bones were feeling a bit tender. I hate to think what sitting down is going to feel like tomorrow.
All went well with the eating today. Feeling very happy with my streak so far. However tomorrow I have a breakfast cruise planned on lake Rotorua. We’re talking bacon, eggs, hash browns, the whole 9 yards. I’ll let you know how that goes. But as for what I ate today, still phase 1:
Breakfast: 1/2 cup of oats, 3/4 cup of fejoa apple mix, 1/4 cup of berries
Snack 1: Nectarine
Lunch: Last nights leftovers mince, pasta and salad, orange
Snack 2: Apple
Dinner: Chicken, Chicken Bacon, Veggie Pasta cooked in a homemade tomato sauce with green beans and salad.
Well I have heaps of geothermal adventure planned for tomorrow so that means heaps of walking. I will be stretching tonight as I know for sure that my legs will be wasted tomorrow.
