    Nice Saturday morning workout. I think you should have run outside & THEN hit the gym 🙂
    The Gorge bike ride looks amazing! Whoa, 38 miles? That’s awesome, more miles than I’ve ever rode on a bike.
    Not sure I have a favorite post workout snack, it depends on how hard the workout was, but a Chobani usually does the trick.

    That looks like an awesome ride! Hilly, too. You need to start riding every other day with the every 3rd ride being a long one and with hills. If you can do 30 miles in a stretch, you will be fine for the rest. Is it more of a ride or a little competitive? It should have at least one pit stop on the course to stop, stretch, and snack.

    My favorite post workout snack? Cupcakes! 😀

    Well, usually it is just breakfast because I do morning workouts, which I also love (the breakfast, that is).

      I want a cupcake!

      We did 25 miles last week between two rides. I’ll amp up the work on my bike trainer for a few weeks and hope that’s good.
